Chests of drawers

Chests of drawers are mostly used in bedrooms but really smart examples can look fantastic in sittingrooms etc with a grand mirror over and a pair of lamps to set the whole thing off

imageIt’s impossible to do justice to the huge and constantly changing range of pieces that we stock.But our loyal customers say they are often quirky, always useful and above all reasonably priced .

imageDressers are the best bit of freestanding Kitchen furniture. They compliment fitted units, look great ,and store a lot too. This one is Scandinavian with a glazed top section but we do plenty with open plate racks like classic farmhouse dressers. You can display your favourite bits of china and hide the rest away.

Mirrors

This is the corner of a large carved mirror with distressed glass.  We do a huge range of  Antique and reproduction mirrors that changes constantly. I dont think you can have enough mirrors, not out of vanity but for the light they bring into a room.

Sideboards and Buffets

This is typical of continental Buffets and we do lots of different styles, sometimes with three or four doors.  They are ideal for flat screen TV,s storing all those DVD’s out of sight in the cupboard below.  But they work well in bathrooms,Kitchens,, toy cupboards, you name it.

Bedsides

Bedsides come in a multitude of styles but these reproduction ones are our most popular.Finsihed in pale grey with a small gallery around the top a drawer and open shelf below.  Many more with just drawers, cupboards,round shaped, kidney shaped, tall or low.

Dining Tables

A French Parquetry topped dining table. These are extremely versatile as the drawer leaves extend the overall length of the table by nearly the same again.They have elegant shaped legs and lovely curves to the top.  You can easily picture them under a glittering chandelier with candles ,wine and good company.

Bookcases

We find at home that we never have enough space for books. They come in all shapes and sizes often with adjustable shelving. Some like these apothecary shelves have drawers  which are great for all those bits and pieces you can never find.

Kitchen Tables

More and more people find their kitchens the hub of the household and these tables give the ideal feel  of belonging and timelessness.  The painted legs and polished tops evoke warm kitchens in rambling farmhouses where many happy meals have taken place.

Cabinets

I was lucky enough to find this in a French Pharmacie that was closing down. Glass cabinets look great full of glittering glass and mounds of cream and white china.

Linen Press

An Antique Linen press in the Swedish Style. These cupboards can be used for anything in all the rooms in your house. The soft pale colours mean that although large they don’t dominate a room so are both functional and pretty.

004Our French style Painted wardrobes and armoires are very popular. The classic provencal ones are just decorative enough without being too over the top. Like the plainer Scandinavian style ones they don’t seem large and often hold a lot of clothes. Usually they come apart for easy access.
