Selling to us
We are always looking for amazing things. We concentrate on 20th century design. Please send photographs and any history on how you came by the piece and we will get in touch with you.
I was fortunate to leave school with a few A grades and an art scholarship in the bag. This, however, presented me with a dilemma – paint and create, or head into academia [and more exams and qualifications]. So my decision to enter the art world after leaving Cambridge was really a way of uniting my two interests.
I started as a van driver for Bonhams Auctioneers and then found myself heading up the furniture department at their Chelsea branch 18 months later. It was obvious that the money in the auction game was simply not good enough, unless you owned the company, so I left, intending to become a dealer. After grafting away at weekend and evening auctions to raise a start up capital fund, I took the plunge, borrowed £2000 more and ventured out on my own buying and selling from the back of my van.
And so began a career that progressed to the pursuit of the most rare and beautiful.
I still travel extensively, though more by train and plane than van these days. We buy and sell internationally, with a clientele ranging from royalty to rock stars, and we love our entrepreneurs too! Our only criteria for our clients and visitors is that you share our enthusiasm.
I like to think we have the most exciting and stimulating furniture shop in the world. Visit us and you’ll enter a James Bond world. You’re on an exotic island when you come here. Enjoy yourselves – you’re on holiday!
