Restored Antique Furniture
We look for good quality antique furniture of a range of styles and pricing points fit for everyday, modern family living.
We prize the character and individuality of old furniture; the idea of a life already well-lived for tens if not hundreds of years, which brings with it a quality assurance that it can continue to serve a happy purpose long into the future.
We have a keen appreciation for the relationship between old and new, how antique furniture can be repaired using modern techniques and materials to sit very happily within contemporary interiors and remind us that having functioned for 50, 100, 200 years, it can withstand many more years if well preserved, without the need to replace with new.
Prints and Works on Paper
Summerfield & Scott Original Prints and Decorative Works on Paper are sourced from a variety of periods, artistic styles and genres which, like our furniture, can be used across a wide range of interior styles and settings. We focus on both fine art prints – original works released by an artist in a limited edition – and decorative works on paper.
This collection is led by Charlie, who previously spent ten years as a Specialist at Christie’s, London. His area of expertise was in Original Prints and Multiples with a 500 year range from Old Masters like Albrecht Dürer, Rembrandt and Piranesi to Modern and Contemporary masters such as Pablo Picasso, Joan Miro, Banksy and Bridget Riley. On numerous occasions he had the opportunity to collaborate with colleagues in the Fine Furniture and Interiors Departments to curate pre-sale viewing exhibitions, curating old and new together.
We want to reduce the environmental impact of supplying beautiful, enduring furniture through a continual cycle of restoration.
We believe there is no reason why well-made furniture cannot follow a circular economy.
We want to reduce the reliance on furniture which is environmentally demanding, energy intensive and ethically questionable, not to mention of short lifespan, which currently dominates our high
