With the announcement of Lockdown 2, we are available online, our new facebook page will be up and running soon and you can also click and collect.

Due to government restrictions, our retail area to the front of the shop will be closed just for now. The workshop will be operational at the rear where pre-owned, upcycled furniture furniture, skilfully restored and upcycled by the Futureworks NY team.


We had the idea back in March just before Lockdown 1. We’ve always wanted to make more of our furniture upcycling, which has a number of benefits including recycling of donated furniture items, preventing items going to landfill and giving your learners a chance to show off the skills they learn with us here at Futureworks NY.

We feel Furniture Works will be a great contribution to Scarborough’s retail landscape as well as giving customers a chance to buy a lovely furniture item at an affordable price.

We  also have our bespoke furniture transformation service, when a customer can ask us to put some love and care into a beloved furniture item and make it look as good, if not better than new!

Covid measures include just 2 customers in the shop at one time, sanitisers are in place and face masks must be worn and will be in place again once we can reopen the retail area.

Did you know … furniture can be up-cycled, reused and purchased, thanks to Futureworks NY!

We renovate and up-cycle pre-owned furniture at our onsite workshop. Renovated items can be purchased and find forever homes in the borough.

The project is run through the Community Works scheme, funded by the Big Lottery and is unique to the Scarborough area.

Community Works is open to those aged 18 to 25 years of age, and we have small, welcoming groups in which learners acquire new skills and confidence in a supportive environment.  One of the key areas of learning is furniture restoration and sometimes the piece that’s being renovated is completely unrecognisable as it’s been totally transformed. Our Community Works team includes Jamie who is never happier than when a paintbrush is in his hand!

As part of our on-going commitment to the Community Works project, we do accept donated furniture items however we do have limited storage space so please contact us for more information.
