WHAT DRIVES US...
We are passionate about finding new homes for antique, vintage and contemporary pieces that are beautifully designed, masterfully created and enduringly desirable.
Through experience, knowledge and research we look to share the story, history and social context of individual pieces; from design origins, points of craftsmanship to materials used.
As a business we are dedicated to sustainability and invite you to help us reduce carbon production, waste and pollution by considering an older and cherished item to furnish your home.
Martin’s interest in decor and furniture stems from three main sources: his love of history, an appreciation of beauty and craftsmanship and an ethical desire to recycle and re-use. Having owned and successfully run the Dorchester Curiosity Centre since it opened eight years ago, Martin has a broad general knowledge of antiques, furniture and collectibles and has an eye for the unusual and curious.
Bob’s passion, from an early age, for history and country ways has led him into more than 50 years of dealing in antiques. His interest in design, from the 17th century to the present day, drives his enthusiasm to collect and he has amassed a great deal of knowledge that he is happy to share.
