About Pepperbox Interiors

Pepperbox specialises in hand painted, antique and vintage pieces of furniture and decorative antiques and accessories for the home.
It also offers a range of interior styling and decoration services and represents a combination of over thirty years trading in vintage and antique furniture, and a lifelong fascination with interior design for its founder Sarah Brehaut.

Pepperbox was established in Cuckfield, West Sussex in 2006. Since then the business has continued to grow. In 2012 the Pepperbox Showroom Barn was launched in nearby West Grinstead. In 2017, almost adjacent to the barn, a new shop was opened focusing on Interior Styling, Design and Interior/Building Project Management.

In its infancy the business concentrated on restoring and hand painting old pieces of furniture, something for which it has now become quite renowned. Today, whilst hand painted furniture is still aplenty, and commissions being regularly undertaken, you will find a wider selection of furniture from all eras. Beautiful old mahogany, oak or pine pieces now sit alongside industrial tables, chairs, stools, benches and bookcases, beds, bespoke, upholstered and other totally unique vintage finds. This combined with a carefully selected range of accessories, soft furnishings, fabrics, lighting, decorative antiques and mirrors old and new makes Pepperbox what it is today. A small but thriving independent interiors business with a real passion for customer service.

About Sarah

For many years I worked in the City of London working as a Managing Agent at Lloyds of London. I used to wile away the endless hours of commuting by planning my dream home and business. I was very ready to give up this life when our children were born and whilst they were growing up I dabbled in buying and selling via local antique markets still longing, one day, to open a small business.

When Georgina and James were happily settled at school I decided (with huge support and encouragement from my husband, John) that the time was right. I suppose my love for interior design stems from my dear Mother. As a youngster we spent many hours together going to antique fairs sourcing furniture and working together on colour schemes for our family home. She had a wonderful eye but she would not be approving of painted furniture for that I am sure so now, having recently lost my father too, I find our home is filled with a mix of antique mahogany, oak and painted Pepperbox furniture, mixing old with new works so well and it is most definitely the way forward.

Our home is a Grade II Listed Farmhouse which John, the children and I have spent the last (at times pretty stressful) sixteen years restoring. We share our home and lovely garden with Buddy our beloved, but very naughty Chocolate Labrador, Pudding our adopted cat (she adopted us) and numerous ducks and chickens.
