AboutWe are Furnify. The dreamers, designers, visualisers, remodellers, eco-warriors and big-picture thinkers who turn your sustainable ambitions into a circular reality. We consult, we design, we realise, and we tell stories...

Repurpose, reuse and embrace bespoke design pieces

We believe in giving interior objects a second life, because “out with the old, in with the new” isn’t compatible with the world that we live in. When businesses renovate a space, a staggering number of furnishings and materials typically get thrown away. To us, that’s a missed opportunity. There’s an oversupply of used interior materials and industrial items as well as a growing demand for reclaimed and repurposed furniture. Furnify bridges this gap.

Our mission is to transform discarded materials into functional, purpose-built, and aesthetically captivating new designs: the ultimate conversation pieces for your new space. Our environmentally responsible approach plays an active role in strengthening the circular economy. We save materials from landfills, minimise the depletion of global resources and create one-of-a-kind designs with a backstory.

Your circular design partner

Are you ready to begin your circular adventure but don’t know where to start? We’ll take you from the initial ideas to the finished project. Our designers are experienced in knowing which direction to take, which obstacles to prepare for and what equipment we’ll need. We’re happy to take the reins of the entire process or advise you one step at a time. Our expert project managers will keep you up to date throughout every stage of the process. Thanks to many years in the industrial design game, we think of the things you haven’t. And we have the skills and expertise to produce a concept you’ll love.

“The future belongs to those who believe in the beauty of their dreams!” {Eleanor Roosevelt}

Over the last 15 years I have gained a lot of experience in different fields. My career began as an interior designer where my love for raw materials, craftsmanship and ‘the past’ were always the starting points in my design approach. I noticed that so much hidden, valuable information is covered in the past, which helps us to understand today. Bringing projects to life became for me a way of making sure the design was built the way you meant it to be. Project Management was the route to get there. PR & Marketing also piqued my interest: I had to ask myself, what is the thought behind your designs, how do you handle projects, and how do you let other people know what you do as a company? Through this journey, my varied experience has made me strong in what I do today: accelerating circularity by designing and just doing! Creativity is THE tool to make change happen. Not only for today and tomorrow; our goal is to change mindsets by making circularity as normalised as new! I would love to meet you and hear your ideas.

“Explore and discover!”

The world has changed massively over the 15 years I have been working as an interior designer. Nowadays, we cannot afford to simply buy new items as we need them. We have to think about how the production of these items impacts the environment. Otherwise, we are part of the problem.
As a designer, I can make a difference here, by re-using objects and materials that already exist, or by utilising more natural materials.
Ultimately, the purpose of a newly-designed space is not just to ‘have something new’, but to create an environment where people feel happy, healthy and at ease. These feelings are increased with the added value of sustainability and circularity in biophilic design.

This process is most enjoyable when done in close cooperation with the client, based on shared values and a common goal. One thing is certain: the journey always concludes in a great story!

Sanne van MiddelaarInterior Architect

Sustainability and circularity are now as much a part of my lifestyle as they are core in my designs. Being sustainable and circular is something you should just do; it is not just a hype, although it can sometimes feel like a trend these days. While designing, there is so much beauty to find in past materials and products. The stories they tell can give designs much more depth. By retelling these stories in the creative way we do, the importance of what we are doing for sustainability at Furnify may stick in the minds of those we work with. We want others to gain more knowledge and understanding on these essential new discussions within (interior) design.
Illustrating is another huge passion of mine as a way of telling stories. Finding the right language within your drawings is as important as the concept itself.
Bringing all my skills together within these different disciplines makes me a strong designer.
