kind words from some of our customers
The Junk Map
“When I first chatted to Troy and Rebecca about Old Soul and saw their rugged steel coffee table I wanted to take it home. But we didn’t need furniture, especially a heavy industrial piece, so I decided to be sensible.
A few weeks later we got married and received some cash gifts from friends and family. It was a great excuse to pull out the photos again and show my husband. Happily, he loved it too and our first joint purchase was a combination of recycled electrical posts, iron bolts and rusty steel! It’s still one of the coolest pieces of furniture we own and an absolute favourite.
I watch all Old Soul work covetously waiting for the day we have room for something else.”

“We have used Old Soul to create custom items at a number of our hospitality venues & we highly recommend their services. Troy is easy to deal with & delivers on all projects within budget & timelines. His designs are innovative & very creative whilst still maintaining functionality & quality.”

A strong and beautifully made table
“We started looking for a dining table a few years ago and searched online for that perfect unique, reclaimed/recycled hardwood piece. There were a few choices but they all seemed to basically be the same style, until we came across Old Soul.
They created that perfect table and both Troy and Rebecca were so friendly and helpful and kept in contact with us throughout the creative process. We are delighted with the result that Troy has created. It is a strong and beautifully made table. We highly recommend Old Soul and can’t wait to decide on our next “must have” piece!”

Best room in the house!
“I discovered Old Soul when searching for a high mount cistern to dress up the most imperative room in the house – a house that I recently got to purchase after living in and loathing the ugly 70’s plastic Caroma cistern for 7 years. I didn’t just find an amazing restored brass Brent cistern, which I can’t stop flushing…. I also found Rebecca and Troy. They are both fantastic people, great to communicate with, sell quality workmanship and more than addressed ALL my questions! 🙂 I’ll be heading back to Old Soul when I need more amazing relics to adorn my castle refurbishment with!”
One of the most beautiful pieces of furniture I own
“I started out looking for an island bench for my kitchen that could double as a small table as well as bench space and room to hold kitchen utensils. After searching around online, I found Old Soul and just fell in love with the concept of using recycled materials and creating something unique and unusual for my home. Upon making contact with Troy and Rebecca, I couldn’t have felt more comfortable in trusting them to create something special for me, and the design and construction process was made so easy with frequent emails and calls to ensure I had exactly what I wanted. When I went to collect my bench, I was unprepared for how blown away I would be at seeing it for the first time (pictures notwithstanding), it is absolutely gorgeous. I now have found some new friends to call upon when my next design fantasy reveals itself! Thank you so much, Old Soul, you’ve given me one of the most beautiful pieces of furniture I own in a totally practical package, and you’re customer service is second-to-none.”
“Since discovering Old Soul my plans for my own business have grown because I know there are things that they can do for us that I simply can’t get anywhere else. And not only are they highly skilled, they are reliable and trustworthy. If you’ve come to this website to look and shop around for someone to do great work, your search is genuinely over. Check out their work in our shop in the city, Embiggen Books and see for yourselves. I will continue to use them for all the new projects I have in mind for several more special pieces for the store. Oh and there’ll be one or two for home too, but you won’t be able to come and see those!”

different, quirky, workable
“When we were looking to update our kitchen we did not know where to start. We knew we wanted something different yet earthy, using recycled materials and something that would resonate with us . Lucky for us we found Troy from Old Soul, who threw in some ideas he had and that got us started. We worked closely with him to combine our unique and exciting ideas. He listened to us and knew exactly what we wanted and set about building our new kitchen. It was just what we wanted; different, quirky, workable and it definitely reflected our ideas. We love the hand crafted tap ware and the bench top made from recycled water tank lids is definitely the feature! We are thrilled and proud of the final product and would highly recommend these guys for any project.”
