From launderette to Lorden design

Denny Rogerson has been in the painted furniture business for over five years

She’s been painting antique, vintage and reproduction furniture for a long time, and now Denny Rogerson has converted an old laundrette into a new outlet for her business.

Denny has been painting furniture for many years but doing it commercially for about five years.

Denny is from Alnwick, but Amble claims a special place in her heart, and she knows it well. “My Granny was from Amble, her name was Margaret Coward. I’ve always liked Amble – and it has such a vibrant feel here now.”

The business is called Lorden and is situated in the old laundrette on Leazes Street.

Denny has carefully filled it with different styles of second hand furniture, all painted in different shades and finishes. A garage at the rear of the premises will act as a workshop.

“I’ve got a massive stock, it’s not just what’s in the shop,” says Denny. “And I can source things for people, or paint their furniture too. But I keep prices affordable, I know people like a bargain”

Lorden’s winter opening hours are Thursday to Saturday 10am – 4pm, Sundays 11 – 3pm
