Along with new upholstery and modern fabrics, WHAT'S NEXT FURNITURE uses a variety of paint types, glazes and distressing techniques to transform furniture.

So, explore "what's next?" for furniture pieces  . . .  and "what's next?" for their lucky new owners!

About

What's Next Furniture is
"what's next" for
owner Anne Riegel.

Anne turned her long-time hobby of repainting furniture into a new business venture.  Her interest in "upcycling" furniture has broadened with her newly acquired & (always expanding!) upholstery skills.

The adventure of finding outdated thrift store & antique pieces, combined with dreams of giving them new life, inspired her to take the plunge & launch WHAT'S NEXT FURNITURE.

To be completely accurate, her decision was also prompted by numerous promises to her husband of over 30 years that she'd find a way to sell the many pieces of furniture she's accumulated in their overcrowded garage.

She's grateful for the loving support & encouragement of her close family & friends, who have also prodded her to move forward with WHAT'S NEXT FURNITURE.

Currently, Anne's workshop is based in her Central NJ home.  Delivery is initially limited to the NJ/NY/Philadelphia metropolitan areas, plus her hometown of Richmond, VA (and the possibility of locations in between).  Anne is completing projects of her own to sell, along with customizing pieces for customers already owned or newly-acquired.
