Running a business from home? This was not our plan at all. We both were working fulltime in our day jobs, I still do. When we moved house, we wanted to find bespoke unique items for our home. We scoured different sites for things that we both loved. I was clear that I wanted solid wood furniture which would be timeless and could be refurbished very easily with changing decor.. Trust me, I change my decor and colour scheme very often.
We started by finding quirky unloved items and upcycling them. Our dining table find was a turning point. Once we hand-sanded the set and painted it, I loved it instantly. Soon friends and family wanted similar products and our hobby grew.
It was our quest to find and upcycle quality furniture that led us to convert this passion into a business. I wanted to know that the solid wood dining table was indeed solid wood inside out and would stand the test of time. We learnt to perfect our knowledge of woodworking and started to build our own dining tables and benches. We also learned to perfect the painting style and experiment with different paints to understand which ones worked best to suit our customer requirements. We also source our wood from sustainable products and ensure that the paints are water based and have low voc.
One factor that has driven us is that, we will not give you anything which we are not proud to have in our home and also to keep our customers informed of every stage of the furniture journey.
We have changed our business name from Blaknite to Saravi Furniture - an acronym of our names reflecting how much we are involved into this.
So if you have any questions about us or our furniture, ask away.
