Sustainability
Antique and vintage goods are both stylish and sustainable. 

They have a low carbon footprint thanks to their existing lifespan and they help reduce deforestation because no trees are being cut to produce them.

They help reduce landfill because, unlike mass-produced non-recyclables, they are high quality in material and craft, and are destined to outlive most other possessions.

Everything we buy interacts with the environment. Second hand furniture and accessories are not only unique, characterful and nostalgic, but also contribute to a sustainable home.

Designer Spotlight | Betty Joel

Betty Joel was an art deco furniture designer born 1894. She was raised in Hong Kong and educated in the UK later returning to live in China at the age of 18. Here she would meet her future husband David, a Naval Officer, they married in 1918, returning to the UK a few years later where they built a cottage. Their new home needed furniture and Betty set to work designing it and David building it. Guests that visited the home admired the interior design and made requests for their own pieces. The couple soon started their own furniture manufacturing company. They named the business Betty Joel Ltd opting to use her name to aim for a female customer base. Betty was the face of the company, featuring in promotional photographs.

Like many other designers of art deco furniture, Betty focused on clean lines and simple forms with an intentional lack of ornamentation that allowed for the materials to become the leading feature. Her designs were also influences by her childhood in the far east. Functionality was also key, cedar lined drawers to prevent moths, seating that would neatly tuck away under its accompanying furniture, and easy to clean surfaces. As the business grew Betty’s work became more collaborative as she worked with local artisans and craftsmen to meet the demands of her market. She opened two shops in central London, her clients ranged from the middle class to the rich and famous and she was highly regarded in her time. Betty’s career ended short in 1938 after the breakdown of her marriage. Her work remains highly collectable to this day.
