Antique Trader at Millinery Works

Central London
This former Victorian hat factory is packed with Arts and Crafts and Aesthetic Movement furniture and objects from Gothic Reform to the Cotswold School – all of which can be picked up at reasonable prices. Even the most basic dining tables and chairs are sturdy and of good quality. Expect to pay £2,000 for an oak Arts and Crafts table and four chairs by an unknown maker. Specialised pieces that you wouldn’t be surprised to see in the V&A are a real draw – and some are strictly POA. Top-drawer makers include Godwin, Dresser, Rennie Mackintosh and ‘Mouseman’ Thompson. Heal’s bedroom furniture is often in stock and look out too for smaller items such as Liberty & Co dressing-table sets and Glasgow Style ceramics. There are regular exhibitions as well as excellent Arts and Crafts shows twice a year.

There's a fantastic contemporary furniture exhibition on right now ~ '21st Century Furniture IV', on until the 10th of March. An opportunity to see, buy, collect or commission a piece of sublime craftsmanship, produced y the most talented designer makers who practice the hand skills of the Arts & Crafts era and combine them with the design sensibilities of today.
