About

Portobello Reclaimed are the Singapore retailer for Fusion Mineral Paint – an environmentally conscious, easy to use, 100% acrylic paint that requires minimal prep work.

We also breathe new life into old furniture by repairing, repainting & refinishing – and run evening “Upcycling With Friends” workshops for small groups.  Portobello Reclaimed also offer a bespoke furniture repair and repainting service.

James Hindle, Founder

An award-winning entrepreneur and refugee from the film industry, James spent three years of his life raising money for Oliver Stone’s hugely unprofitable epic – Alexander.  Moving on from film – and using innovative commercial investment structures – he raised more than £150 million for research into flu vaccines and Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder.  After a short sabbatical during which he designed and helped construct one of the highest treehouses in Wales, James moved to Singapore in late 2013.

Passionate about rescuing once-loved pieces of furniture before they are sent to landfill, James helped set up Portobello Reclaimed in early 2017.  His preferred colour is grey, and his favourite piece of furniture the humble chair.
