Some of Our Customer Comments

Hi Kathi,
The antique desk and antique chair are fantastic! I appreciate everything you did to get them here as described! Your customer service is beyond reproach!
Thanks again!
Stephen,  (Florida USA)


Hi Kathi, 
The antique desk arrived this morning and we are so pleased with the condition of the desk. Thank you for your patience towards delivery.  
With our being out of the country and the hurricanes, it has extended the shipping time.   At last, it is here and we are thrilled.  
Best wishes,
S Hagel, Florida  USA  


 Hi Gavin,
 I thought I would drop you a quick line to say how pleased I am with it! It is always difficult to judge colour correctly from a photograph on a computer screen so there was a certain element of trepidation when I agreed to buy it without seeing it!
I need not have worried and it fits in perfectly.
Once again thank you.
Kind regards,
Mark Taylor, (London)

customer reviews on Houzz.com

To anyone who is concerned about using this wonderful company.....please dont be worried!
We bought two writers desks, one was a lovely antique French writing desk and another a large antique Mahogany desk.
This company was personable, helpful and sent the desks to us in Denver with NO complications.
They followed up to make sure we were happy and also provided cups under the desk to make sure they were of the optimal height.
We were hesitant buying items so expensive online, but can honestly say our high expectations were exceeded!

Investing in Antique Furniture?

In the current climate we are more concerned about the environment, and appreciate again good quality furniture that will last and last for generations. Throw-away items that choke up our landfill sites is good for no one. We may not always wish to keep our antique furniture forever but we will have the opportunity to pass it on to our relatives or sell it on and invest in something else. As an investment, it can make good sense to enjoy the financial  investments we have in a tangible form rather than leaving it in poorly performing accounts. Good quality antique furniture will always sell even if some styles go out of fashion at times. Although brown furniture did see a slump in popularity in England it has remained popular in Italy, USA and Canada

Care of Antique Furniture and Desks

Polishing and Cleaning:
Waxing with a good quality polish based on beeswax brings out the color and grain of the wood and provides protection. Do not use spray polishes as these often contain a large amount of water which will adversely affect french polished surfaces and leave white marks. Put a small amount of polish on a soft cloth and rub the piece until the wax on the cloth shines. This will burnish the surface and evaporate any solvent. Then polish with a clean duster. If possible, apply the wax at night to allow it to nourish the wood and polishing regularly
