This past Saturday the Wellington paper featured a lovely article on the life story of our dear friend Brian Wallis who passed away at the end of August after a long battle with cancer.
Brian has owned Form Furniture on the Old Hutt Road in Thorndon for many years, and it was he who took the esdesign girls under his wing when we first set up ten years ago - leasing us a small studio at the front of the Form Furniture workshop, among the dust and the wood shavings and the treasure trove of antique furniture that streamed in and out of the premises. He taught us a host of invaluable furniture restoration skills, (as well as an endless supply of questionable jokes) - and the knowledge he has given us adds to the wealth of advice we too can now give to our clients.
Brian's son Reuben has taken over the Form Furniture reigns and continues to do a brilliant job for both their own clients and many of ours. Brian will be sorely missed, however Form Furniture remains as strong as ever, and we look forward to seeing where Reuben takes the company in the future!
