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.

The Old Cinema

Spotlight | Victorian Period, 1837-1901

There was a huge increase in English furniture production during the second quarter of the 19th century, to cater for a rapidly growing middle class. This was made possible not by the machinery of mass production (which came towards the end of the century) but by a horde of servant woodworkers.

The style was flamboyant and imposing, with plenty of curves and glossy rounded corners, typically made in mahogany and rosewood, but oak was also popular for its weight and Britishness. Towards the end of the era the emphasis was on aggressively straight lines and dark stained solid wood. Old English and Continental styles were adopted, as well as a fashion for Anglo-Japanese fretwork panels and imitation bamboo.

Key examples of Victorian furniture include the balloon-back chair, the Thonet rocker, the chesterfield sofa, the chiffonier, the whatnot, and the davenport.
