Part of my job is going to local Auction Houses or Sales. Sounds great fun? Well, yes it is, but somehow I often come home with completely random pieces of furniture that I just couldn’t resist or for some reason I felt sorry for. In this category you will find for sale such impulse purchases.
There is something special or unique about each of them, something that caught my eye, all are antique or vintage specimens. I have lovingly restored every single piece myself and get a great deal of pleasure in having rescued an ugly duckling and transformed it into a bit of a swan with a new lease of life. Sometimes all that is required is a coat of chalk paint, maybe some new handles, or perhaps just a clean-up and polish using my Dad’s secret receipt – he was a very talented furniture restorer and French Polisher and he taught me some of his trade secrets.
Every single piece is totally unique, a one-off. Yes, it might be a little bit quirky but you can rest assured none of your friends will ever have one like it!
