Our Mission is to stimulate your curiosity and passion in all things of a HIGH QUALITY and of a HISTORIC nature.
We want to open your mind to the beauty and timeless relevance that is to be found in our Artwork, Furniture and historical treasures.
In this age of flat-pack furniture, minimalism and blank clean lines, it is VITAL that you keep your mind open to the possibilities that rare HIGH QUALITY and ELEGANT antiques and artwork can deliver, when used in tandem with your vision of modern living.
It is one of the great misconceptions that antiques do not 'fit' with modern design. This is complete 'rubbish'.
Great antiques only make modern design MORE INTERESTING, especially, when used sympathetically with modern designs.
Many Interior Designers are beginning to realize and embrace this philosophy and it is ABOUT TIME!!!
Our Mission is to KEEP the love of Antiques CURRENT and not to simply accept that current trends have no place for antiques or brown furniture.
We consider ourselves FIRST RESPONDER'S for treasures that could potentially be lost to history. We thrive on rescuing RARE and HISTORIC pieces and thoroughly researching and cataloging their PROVENANCE and STORY.
We are only "temporary custodians of our pieces in the passage of time", but if we can save and preserve their STORY for future generations to learn from and admire, then we make it our MISSION to do so and we TAKE PRIDE in doing so!
CONSIDER: What is more important? Owning a piece of important history with the full history preserved and committed to writing and saved FOREVER on the internet OR a piece that may look great but has no STORY, no SOUL?? Which piece do you think will catch your visitors’ attention ?? Which piece do you think that future generations will want to discuss ??? Which piece will hold its value and probably increase in value when current tastes change ??
ALWAYS remember: Tastes and trends change and come and go, but QUALITY, HISTORY AND RARITY ALWAYS survives and thrives !!!
Just as in real estate the most important words are "location, location, location', the mantra in antiques is "Provenance, Provenance, Provenance"!!
