New advice helps vintage furniture business grow

K+G Curated Space is a lifestyle brand that sells vintage furniture as well as offering interior design, styling and a finder’s service. K+G comprises Kenny (Helen) and Gra (Graham), who have a passion for all things interior, especially pre-loved vintage pieces. Established in 2018 and based in an old hosiery factory in the heart of Leicester city centre they wanted to grow their business.

Prior to working with Collaborate, K+G’s business was mainly online and most of its customers were London based. The team had an idea of what they wanted to do but weren’t sure if it was the right idea.

Director, Helen Kenny attended some of the Collaborate online retail workshops at the LCB depot to consolidate what she already knew, and from there she was put in touch with Bev Shephard from Creative Leicestershire who helped her develop a business plan.

Collaborate has ended but businesses in Leicester or Leicestershire that are looking for business support can still contact the Business Gateway Growth Hub. T: 0116 366 8487.
