The family of Elphius Flux has a standing joke that they are where they are today because of a hobby gone mad.
Elphius Flux started from humble beginnings. Tinkering in a dusty shed in the family garden with salvaged and reclaimed materials after the 9-5 was done. They then began supplying friends and family with unique and quirky pieces of industrial and rustic inspired furniture made from what would otherwise have been scrap.
However, as friends and family began to get to grips with the name “Elphius Flux” and started telling their friends and beginnings about their amazing handcrafted pieces, the hobby gained momentum quickly and before Elphius Flux knew it, they were quitting their 9-5s, finding a bigger workspace and gaining a long list of loyal and fabulous clients.
