Brandy from Brushed by Brandy

The first pieces I did were a bedroom set in 2016 that tenants left behind in our rental, it was beat up, but solid wood, and I had nothing to lose, it was either going to the curb or I could make something of it. I’ve always been on the crafty/artistic side so this was a great way to express that on huge canvases.


My hobby has turned into a booming little business, most of my pieces are sold before I create them and designed alongside my customer. My style is blended, smooth, colorful statement pieces for any room.

Monika Charchula

Winner of BBC’s 2023 Interior Design Masters.

We are delighted to introduce Monika, a true artist and master of the upcycling craft. Monika’s passion for antiques, interiors, dark glamour, and sustainability has inspired her to create some of the most unique and decadently upcycled furniture and bespoke home decor pieces under the name of 84 Square. As Monika became more involved in the upcycling subculture, she began to push the limits of what she could do with beat-up, unwanted furniture. Her creativity and individuality began to shine through in her work, and she developed her own unique style that has become the hallmark of her creations.
