ABOUT Life Space Conversions
Who are Life Space conversions? A small family run business based in the outdoor city of Sheffield, specialising in bespoke small spaces tailored to suit a clients lifestyle. Life Space conversions have an ethos focused on producing unique conversions built using eco friendly materials and geared towards the possibility of going off-grid altogether. Life space conversions have completed various campervan conversions for themselves and friends and Simon and Jenny themselves have practiced downsizing themselves over the course of the last few years and now live in one of two small but quirky apartments they have converted above the business premises.
In their spare time Simon and Jenny are keen outdoor sports enthusiast and have traveled the UK extensively in their custom campers seeking out adventure, from surfing, skiing, rock climbing and mountaineering, kayaking and mountain biking and this has led them to what seemed to them an obvious conclusion, to combine the two elements of their life and turn it into a business to be immensely passionate about and proud of.
Life Space Conversions is the brain child of furniture designer Simon Powell. Simon has a creative background spanning 22 years since studying design and illustration at Art college. After then training as carpenter and joiner and working in the building trade both on the tools and as a manager for 12 years. During this time Simon spent a few years fitting out narrow boats and his interest peaked. In the last 10 years Simon has built a rapidly growing themed furniture brand which has enjoyed growth year on year, now this business has got to a point where Simons input is only required for custom designs and occasionally altering the range. Certain designs have now become so popular that they have been shipped overseas as far as Azerbaijan and Malaysia, they are often replicated by competitors but never matched. This attention to detail shines through everything Simon designs, and the skills learned in the time spent developing the other business, like new paint spraying systems and products as well as using 3d software to create stunning drawings viewable by the client from every possible angle will ensure that this new venture achieves the same level of acclaim.
