Roads2Joya specialise in recycling, up-cycling and upholstery of antique furniture.

Founded by Ayesha Sowani, who holds strong beliefs in handmade and bespoke design, R2J evolved as a way to introduce a contemporary and playful feel to antique furniture.

R2J also provide a roads2 interior design service. This allows you to up-cycle any of your own existing furniture. Book an appointment with Ayesha to discuss all the options for revitalising your items.

Each product within the joya collection has been handpicked for its unique qualities. It is then refinished and the colour is changed using the same technique and paints used in the automotive trade. This is done to enable the item to retain its antique qualities while creating a new texture and feel.

R2J offer an upholstery service available to clients.Restore exisiting pieces to their former glory, or alternatively change the look altogether.
