“Restored Retro was our first stockist, we started selling our products through Steve’s shop nearly two years ago, and it has not only been fruitful for both parties, we have become good friends. Our business values are aligned and it is the right fit for us,” said Blades.
“What I admire about Steve is the eye because when you’re selling furniture you’re putting something into someone’s house which is very personal to them but the majority of the time you don’t know that person.
“You’re putting your personality into the furniture and that’s what I admire about Steve in the sense that he’s done something that is really pure in putting his slant on it. That’s a really hard thing to do, a lot of people think it’s easy. So what I admire is that Steve’s been able to do it from really, really humble beginnings.”
