The History of Sofas and Stools
A number of different historical periods are covered within our antique sofas and stool ranges including, in no particular order, Victorian, Edwardian, Louis XV, French Empire and Art Deco. In many cases, these pieces will have been reupholstered using top quality fabrics in keeping with the original item and its period, but please do make a point of checking the detailed descriptions we provide with all of our listings so that you are clear about what it is you will be receiving.
As with the upholstery, many of these antique furniture items will be restored by our craftsmen in our own workshops. These are people who believe in using traditional techniques and materials as far as possible in order to maintain the look and feel of the pieces they are sympathetically restoring.
At Home or At Work We Have The Antique Sofa for Your Space
Many of our antique sofas and other items of antique furniture find their way into hotels, restaurants and other commercial spaces. We are often asked to supply pieces for use on film sets, mainly for period dramas and we were fortunate enough to recently supply items for the filming of Downton Abbey.
Although we place a great deal of importance on these commercial placings, our first responsibility is that you, our customer, can find the items that you want to use and live with for many years to come, not just for a few hours on a film set but as a permanent fixture in your home.
