Why Did We Set Up The Fliprunway Awards?
The Fliprunway Refinishing Awards are the result of our observation, when we started working in this new furniture refinishing world that there was a lack of support for the craftspersons working in it and we were was shocked to find that no industry standards existed and still do not, and there is no governing body specifically for the furniture upcycling industry. Whilst working alongside these highly talented furniture artists, we felt that we wanted to do something to celebrate the industry and those working in it.
