Rediscover Furniture

Rediscover Furniture


Rediscover Furniture is a social enterprise that is located in the unique Rediscovery Centre, the National Centre for the Circular Economy, in Ballymun. This social enterprise creates training opportunities for the long term unemployed and all revenue generated from its activities are reinvested back into the enterprise. Rediscover Furniture brings new life to old furniture and takes great pride in the fact that this furniture if not rescued would have been destined for landfill.  The programme is aligned to the sustainable ethos of the Rediscovery Centre and the team uses traditional methods and environmentally friendly products in all of their work.

Rediscover Furniture offers furniture courses and upcycling courses to the public. For any queries relating to repairs please email pictures of your items to

All of the restoration and upcycling work is undertaken by Gerard Griffin and his trainees. The completed pieces by the Rediscover furniture team is for sale in our unique Eco Store located on the first floor of the Rediscovery Centre. All profits from these sales are reinvested back into the social enterprise.


Rediscover furniture runs public courses throughout the year and take place in our bespoke workshop located in the Rediscovery Centre. All of our furniture courses are led by our in-house furniture restorer Gerard Griffin. Gerard has over thirty years experience in antique restoration and furniture upcycling and he will guide you through all elements of your course.
