HOUSE AND LEISURE magazine -Denise Kiggan of Freshly Found, an online shop that sells handmade items made from objects that would otherwise be turned into waste, has always loved working with her hands. ‘I’ve always enjoyed seeing the potential in found materials. I believe that greater creativity is forged within strong boundaries – not having everything that you want and think you need makes space for great innovation. I prefer items with an interesting story behind them than the merely beautiful and store bought.’ – House and Leisure October 2012 Page 182
THE CREST magazine –VINTAGE INSPIRATION With a passion for the quirky and whimsical, Denise has tumed a hobby into a successful business. “I have always delighted in filling my home with the things I’ve made, as well as objects found in sometimes obscure places,” says Denise, who describes her Freshly Found decor accessories as a blend of vintage, repurposed, restyled and handmade treasures. “The vibrant tension between old and new items alongside each other, and the surprise of using the traditional in a contemporary and unexpected way is a cherished love for me.” Drawing on her eye for the unusual, Denise re-works vintage collared shirts into fresh and funky scatter cushions. Vinyl LP record covers find a new purpose as vibrant origami folded boxes and knitting needles form the stems of intricately-crafted paper flowers. The revival of an “old fashioned” skill flows like a retro thread through the Freshly Found range. – The Crest June/July 2012 Page 18
