View at Home


It is always best to see a piece of furniture in your own home alongside the rest of your furnishings so that you can be sure that you like it and that it works for you.   A chest of drawers or a large bookcase will 'sit down' if it is the right piece for a room and will look as though it has always lived there.

I offer a home approval service and my courier will bring any piece to your home, put it in place, and wait whilst you view and decide whether to keep it.  If you decide that you like it, my courier will leave the piece with you but if for some reason the furniture does not suit, he will either take it then or return to collect it within a few days.  I am happy to wait for payment for a piece until you have had a home viewing and can make a decision.

The cost of this service is 100 if you decide to return the piece and 50 if you decide to keep it.

Home approval gives you the flexibility to try several pieces and to make a choice at your leisure in your own home.   Many of my clients who have busy lives regularly use this service.

For customers who have not bought from me previously or who are just starting to collect antiques, home approval gives complete peace of mind as there is no obligation whatsoever.

I set out for all of my pieces to exceed expectations and for my customers to be delighted with everything they buy.   Pieces are very rarely returned from home trial and the few to be returned in the last 45 years included a huge Charles I coffer, sadly too large to fit through any door or window!
