Predictions for 2017 - Art & Antiques

Flicking through the Antiques Trade Gazette earlier this month, we saw some promising and agreeable predictions and quotes from market leaders in relation to the Art & Antiques market for 2017.

"Customers are happy to mix antiques and contemporary and this trend will continue. The country homes we visit can easily have a Giacometti sculpture on a George II table with an Old Master painting above." Claire Penhallurick - Love this look... works so well in both traditional and modern contemporary interiors.

"There is demand from new blood:...I genuinely believe we have started to move away from modern minimalism and back toward classic interiors. There's a shortage of good paintings but prices for middle-market Old Masters are on the rise." Archie Parker.

"Great expertise, great merchandise, correct pricing, great service and great delivery - anyone who wants to survive and prosper in this highly competitive market will be primarily focused on these." Guy Schooling - Something we wholeheartedly agree with and focus on ourselves. Enabling us to provide the best service we can offer and establishing a relationship with our customers, old and new.

Furniture: make a statement and mix it up - A reaction to minimalism as the mid-century industrial and salvage'look' becomes tired. "...striking quality antique furniture is coming back into the frame as statement pieces to offset the high level of contemporary interiors. This trend is only just beginning..." reports Piers von Til - We've been saying this and offering this style for a few years; we have recently created a contemporary interior space in which to showcase our decorative pieces of furniture, and original artwork at our Art and Antique Gallery in Uppingham. It really sets the pieces off and shows their honest quality and beauty, creating a warm and sumptuous interior.

Do call us if you require any help or advice in curating a particular look and feel in your home with the use of 'one off' and decorative antique furniture or artwork.

It's what we do.

Home Styling with Antiques...

Interior styling with antiques has moved on! No longer do we want our homes full of heavy brown furniture cluttering and distorting our beautiful clean lines and living spaces! However, one or two unique and hand selected decorative pieces add warmth, character and elegance to your contemporary interior, creating a calm and homely place. 

Modern spaces are built with modern living in mind, but we still have the same spaces to style.  Consider... a quality handmade chest of drawers in a bedroom... an antique gilt mirror and console table in the entrance hall... a tilt top tripod lamp table in your snug next to your favourite armchair ... a fabulous early portrait above a simple oak dresser base on that expanse of 'what on earth can we put there?'

Let us help you find the perfect individual pieces that will help you create your dream interior space... Home.
