The Perfect Piece

As you walk through your home, your eyes are drawn to that one little empty space that is waiting for the perfect piece. Whether it be a large or small void, you've spent hours searching for just the right thing. Is it vintage or modern, antique or reproduction, you just won't know until you've laid eyes on it!

You're looking for the piece that has been perfectly loved by its previous owner or labored over in a workshop somewhere in the heart of England. Is it a French chest of drawers or an English Oak coffer? Is it a set of vintage enamel mixing bowls or an antique Blue Willow soup tureen? Whether it be strictly utilitarian or frivolous and decorative it’s out there waiting for you.

It’s the thrill of the hunt that I love most about antiquing. We’ve trudged through mucky fields in England and spent hours in warehouses poring over inventory to select a unique and timeless collection. And now, we want to share it with you in our new blog. Each week, starting this Monday we will feature a “Perfect Piece”. With a little history and background you’re sure to fall in love with something and maybe fill that little space you’ve been eyeing…
