Fine Furniture and Interior Design
While I passionately wave the flag for the finest early eighteenth century furniture of untouched colour and patination, I am delighted that it is attracting an increasing and enthusiastic audience. It is now often the case that as soon as an exciting rarity is discovered, their path to a delighted home is rarely interrupted with a chance to grace this website. There is always something rather tantalising about the luxury of acquiring the “unique and unseen!”
As well as building exquisite collections with some wonderful private clients, it is also a joy to secure individual pieces for museums. Of particular note was the discovery of a fully documented piece by Thomas Chippendale, acquired by The Chippendale Society.
Interior projects are often a marvelous opportunity to allow our fascinating past to inform the future. One client was so enthralled by their travels in the East, that I am subtly evoking the atmosphere of the Orient in their charming English country house. Coming full circle, another current commission is for a collection of furniture in contemporary materials, inspired by the timeless quality of early 18th century design.
