Local. Handmade. Unique.
Forty-five Whitstable opened in January 2018, to offer an eclectic stock of homewares and interiors, all crafted by local people for you to add that little bit of individuality to your home. We showcase the best local talent to bring colour and character to any space, and have carefully selected pieces by artisans known for their particular expertise, as well as producing our own up-cycled and re-purposed vintage furniture.
Husband and wife team, Nick and Sue, began Forty-five in January 2018, having taken early retirement and sold a previous company. Nick used his long term hobby of taking something broken and apparently worthless and turning it into something useful and appealing, and Forty-five was born.
Nick's talent for finding unwanted pieces, and reinventing them for the modern home is extraordinary - from a water cylinder drinks cabinet, to a hammer doorknocker! At Forty-five you are guaranteed to find exquisite furniture and decor that is utterly individual, upcycled locally, and totally unique.
