Who ever said you can't mix different styles and periods?!!  For some time now, home decor has been about showing individuality – it’s great because pretty much anything goes. But no-one wants their home to look like a hoarders paradise, so it does take a little bit of planning to make it work. I was recently looking for a few ideas for a bedroom and was very pleasantly surprised about how much is out there on mixing antique and contemporary styles.

When talking furniture - “brown” antique f...

Hard to believe - but yes, another year has shot by!  From our perspective a fairly successful one. We started the year by focusing on extending our range to include a Furniture collection whilst obviously needing to continue bringing new pieces into our other existing collections. We wanted to stay true to our approach and build it around pieces that we like, that we would want to live with - something we do for all our collections. Looking back, we're pleased although we would have liked to ha...

 No surprises - its been a while since posting here and as always, very busy but still not complaining!

We did actually manage to fit in a bit of a holiday where we weren't looking to source pieces. First in quite a few years. Back now and into the zone again. 

Just wanted to update you about our new site search tool that's been added to the website. I think you'll find it a lot more user friendly. Easy to find both page references as well as products. The only small foible is that it cannot filte...

Always seem to be apologising for the irregular post on our blog - life continues extremely busy but we never complain about that!

We've been sourcing and restoring further pieces for our furniture collection which (we think!) is developing nicely. We're aiming for a mix of good quality antique pieces that remain very useful around the home as well as decorative pieces that add a focus to any room - whether in the traditional or modern style. The image here showing examples of both!  I've seen so...

Antique silver photograph frames are always popular - both as gifts for friends and family on those special occasions but also just for you to frame those special memories.

Finding good quality, attractive antique silver frames which are also in a good enough condition to be loved again is always a challenge. Anyone would want their special memories set in a frame that does them justice.

We've gradually developed skills and techniques in refurbishing the silver part of the frame - although sa...

...From small acorns grow! 

Sorry to keep on about it - but we're really, really pleased about the start we've made on our Furniture Collection. We think we've got some fantastic pieces - and a few have been snapped up already.

Of-course this aspect of dealing antique is new to us. We're staying with our philosophy of "would we like to keep it ourselves?". If that's a 'yes'- then we're very happy to add it to our collection. It's a philosophy that has done us well so far - so hoping we contin...

We've been keeping busy sourcing new pieces whilst also staying specially focused on growing our Furniture Collection - which is a very poor excuse for not having updated our blog page for a while. 

News to share in this one is our Monthly Newsletter which we started in Jan this year. Bit late to say its 'news' I know but hey! Our aim is to keep in-touch with our customers as well as giving those looking for fantastic antiques to be updated regularly on new stock and also what's in the pipeline....
