Fabulous furniture- a sign of age?

Fabulous furniture- a sign of age?

Maybe I’m getting old, but my new love du jour is beautiful furniture for the home -ok, well buying a few bits and lusting after the rest!

I’ve just bought a beautiful, hand-crafted solid mahogany desk from Furniture Emporium– it’s gorgeous and I’m saving up for a wardrobe, dressing table, bedside table…..ahh..the list goes on..

I find myself poring over the pages of Grazia, Style magazine or Vogue when there’s an article delving into someone’s fabulously stylish home. And I’m intrigued and genuinely interested when someone tells me about their new Vivien Westwood wallpaper for the hallway…unfortunately, not something I can afford just yet!

This is a new found desire, normally it’s the fashion pages I’m lusting over, as I said..I think it’s a sign of age..

Anyway, I found this great little boutique the other day in Islington, called Decorexi– you can also buy their stuff online. It’s actually a wholesaler (which keeps prices very low!) but you can still buy direct from them. It has a gorgeous range of antique and vintage furniture pieces (above), all at really low prices..perfect! I bought a stunning antique jewellery stand for just £18. If you’re into your character pieces, it’s definitely worth a look!

I was suprised by how much antique furniture is also available to buy on Ebay , there are some really great deals out there…so maybe the dressing table, wardrobe, bedside table… are not so far away!

  • Well, I am at the similar stage right now… I feel like I want to make my flat to be more homy and stylish… but the money. It is worthy checking out few antique-second hand furniture shops, sometimes they have a real gems! It is also ok to buy an older piece and re-new it, as easy as putting a fancy wall paper on a simple old bookcase as my friend did recently and I am going totally mad about the ideas now… 🙂
