The team comprise Max McMurdo, a pint-sized designer with a passion for transforming everyday items into amazing pieces of furniture, Jay Blades, who uses an amazing eye for colour to transform drab items into objects of desire, and Nessa Doran O'Reilly - a woman so obsessed with restoring furniture that she refuses to throw away even a scrap of old wood.
