As the old saying goes, ‘what goes around, comes around’ and by the late 1990’s antique furniture had definitely done the rounds.
Unless you where ‘hob knobbing’ it around London, in Southerby’s auction house and dealing in seriously high end pieces, trading in antique furniture was no longer a great way to make a living.
For many years… vintage furniture was overlooked and modern pieces, mass produced overseas took over. However, things have changed very recently.
No longer do people want to have identical homes to millions of others. They don’t want to buy furniture that they have to put together and that will only last a few years.
Vintage furniture is back with a vengeance.
We are seeing an increasing number of our clients in Warrington, Cheshire, Manchester and beyond, wanting us to give vintage furniture pieces a new lease of life – from Victorian ‘downstairs furniture’ (the furniture the servants used), to working class Art-Deco and pieces from the 1960’s and 70’s. Some of the pieces they have found themselves, often covered in decades of dust and grime, or we have been tasked with finding the perfect piece that we can lovingly restore.
We have in the past reproduced 1950s style armchairs in a paisley velvet with contrasting piping and made exact copies of 35 art deco chairs for the Daniel Adamson Association Project.
