Antiques in a Contemporary setting

We have on occasions customers saying “We have a modern house which won’t take antiques” or“Antiques will not fit in with a modern look”.

To try and change this way of thinking we have given this challenge to Lisa Lyons a young lady who has just finished a BA (Hons) degree in Interior Design at Northumbria University.

Lisa’s brief was to use the upstairs of our showrooms to design a Bedroom, Sitting room and Study using antiques we had in stock and mixing them with contemporary colours and fabrics to give a present day look. As a bonus Lisa has also furnished our shop window with a Christmas theme.

Here are some of her ideas for an office or study, the other rooms will be shown over the next few weeks.

  1. Hi Graham Smith,
    Really nice decoration! I am very glad to see such great decoration. I got new idea from you to decorate my house with vintage items. Thanks to share useful information with us.

  2. It’s really helpful to see how contemporary colour schemes complement mahogany furniture, looking forward to seeing the other two blogs – I’m going straight to your online desks section to have a look!
