I have been watching Ifigenia’s work for many years and I would say it is getting better and better with time. Ifigenia and her husband, Eutychis Andreadakis, decided in 2008 to change careers. After 20 years in the fashion industry, she as a stylist and fashion director in women’s magazines and Eutychis as a fashion photographer, they decided that they wanted to work on something new and more personal.
Their shared leisure time with furniture transformation inspired them to set up a furniture renovation workshop in Lagonissi, near Athens and actually have the chance to make their hobby a profession, while giving our old furniture a second chance.

They carry out all the work involved in refurbishing old furniture : they remove all old varnishes, maintain wood, specialize in many different finishes, experiment boldly with infinite colors and of course finish them with professional varnishes. Adding to all of the above is the furniture upholstery that they put an extra stamp on, as they do not move in what we call a “classic style”.
However, they will find it difficult to find a piece of furniture that does not “inspire” them as most of the furniture they use is old, since the time that the furniture was usually handmade, made with love and self-denial, and the notion of “profit” and “production line” was not so intense in the furniture maker’s philosophy. This is a mentality that Ifigenia and Eutychis still maintain today in the way they work. There is nothing in what they do that is reminiscent of mass production and I would venture to say that they transform old furniture literally into works of art …
