Sarah Preager

Creator

The Found Collection is an eclectic mix of pre-loved furniture that has been reworked to make old, dated pieces fun, colourful and stylish. The Collection is aimed at having something for everyone. With a range of small accessories, mirrors, artwork, decorative pieces and larger items of furniture. 

 

I come from a Fine Arts background in Painting and the Digital Arts. The collection also draws from my experience working in the Interior Design industry for the last 12 years as a graphic designer. I like to mix the old and new, traditional and contemporary and I just love playing around with colour.

 

You may have seen The Found Collection at the local Artisan market but now the collection can be found Upstairs at 29 Bell St in Reigate. I also do custom orders, see below for more details.

THE PROCESS

 

Every single piece you see on my website, or my Instagram, is sourced, created and hand painted by me. I love the process of finding all the pre-loved furniture, artworks and objects, mocking up designs, working with the clients to get their perfect piece and also creating new pieces for The Found Collection.

SOURCE

 

I love looking for unique and original pieces for the collection. If you are looking for something in particular then I can help you find it.   

DESIGN

 

I like to throw myself into a project but I also like to do a bit of planning, especially when it comes to the bigger furniture items. This part of the process is sometimes the most rewqarding. I can play around with different fabrics, colours and textures and you can choose your prefered option.

CREATE

 

I have worked with some of the leading products on the market when it comes to fabrics and paints. I want to create a quality product so I choose my materials very carfully. I also consider every surface, not just what is on show. 

A BIT MORE ABOUT ME

 

I'm a mother of 2 under fives, now living in Surrey. I started my own business having sourced and customised design pieces for family, friends and friends of friends. 

I studied Fine Arts at the University of Cape Town (yes, I’m South African) so I have a love for traditional art and I am also a graphic designer which gives me my love of colour, patterns and geometry, I have a real mix going on.

 

 

I have worked in the interior design industry for the last 10 years which has helped inspire me to start this new business venture.
