A coffee shop that is both contemporary and quirky will be opening on mid-June in Wirksworth.
Upcycled Creative recycles and breathes new life into everyday items to create unique pieces of furniture and lighting. Road signs have been made into tables, skis turned into bookshelves, discarded pipework transformed into feature lighting and tractor seats fashioned into contemporary seating.

Now this small innovative company, that currently has a showroom of its furniture and lighting on St John's Street in Wirksworth, has launched an exciting new project. This will see the shop move to new premises just across the road where it will also be opening a brand new coffee shop.
The Coffee Bunker @ UPCYCLED CREATIVE will offer a selection of coffees and speciality teas as well as cakes, croissants, teacakes and some unique treats amongst an industrial styled backdrop of continually changing upcycled creations including furniture and lighting.
Owner Lee Richards, who recycles unwanted items into one-of-a-kind bespoke items, says, “As well as running Upcycled Creative I've always wanted a coffee shop so when the opportunity presented itself to combine the two I just couldn't say no! Everything in the showroom-come-coffee shop will be available to purchase or commission – even the tables and chairs so you can literally try the furniture before you buy!”
In true Upcycled Creative style, the coffee shop promises a quirky venue where every item is guaranteed to be a talking point. Sit and relax at tables that Lee has fashioned from whisky barrels or enjoy a pit stop at tables he has made by bolting old truck tyres together then overlaying the top with fitted sheets of glass.
There will also be the opportunity to join one of Upcycled Creative's workshops where people can learn about furniture painting or upholstery, transforming old pieces of furniture into something new.
Food and drink purchased at The Coffee Bunker will be available either to eat in or takeaway and to keep things simple there will be just one fixed price for tea or coffee and a piece of cake.
Whether it's searching for the perfect gift for that difficult-to-buy-for-person or just meeting friends for coffee, The Coffee Drop is looking forward to opening its doors in June.
