Regular visitors will know that we are big fans of upcycled furniture. So we are very happy to announce the arrival of our latest new dealer Anna Rimoldi. Anna, 31, has been a fashion designer for the past 7 years and is now turning her creativity to furniture. Upcycling furniture can involve using an object for another purpose or restyling a classic item to produce something truly individual and unique.
This Mad Men style Drinks Cabinet has been hand repainted and is the first in a series of upcycled furniture on her stand, as well as other vintage pieces. Be sure to have a look!
I currently have my nose stuck in a massive book, Art Deco Complete, by Alistair Duncan. I find this book very hard to put down! I have chosen two original Art Deco pieces in the shop that I would love to have:
This original 1930's complete tea set was designed by Edna Best and sold exclusively at Lawley's on Regent Street. Each piece is hand painted and a set like this is very rare and hard to find today.
This 1930's ebonised armchair is slightly reclined, heavily sprung and very comfortable to sit in. Czechoslovakian Jindrich Halabala designed this quite rare chair and many others for the Deco mass market. This is the second pair we have had in the shop by him and it will not stay here very long!
See you in the shop,
