Here’s a typical repair that we do. A beautiful Mid-century cabinet that has strained two of the leg joints.
The Repair involved separating the parts, cleaning them up then re-gluing and carefully clamping the sections to set them back up.
Finally as an addition we added a dowel to the joint to prevent a repeat of the strain fracture and refinished the whole area to blend in with the existing patina. Finished state below.
Autumns big news is this beautiful Edwardian display cabinet. Originally installed in Liberty is come our way via a high fashion designer and has been well looked after. As ample kitchen storage or displaying beautiful things in your bedroom it would be impressive. It is amazing how glamorous everything looks with a mirror behind it!
Here’s a rare example of the Jose Sofa and Armchair By Guillerme Et Chambion Edition Votre Maison. I love the beautifully sculpted arms and legs and the bold carving in the back panels. Currently upholstered in orange wool, a fine example of 1950’s charm. Sofa £950 150 l, 75 w, 83 h cm Armchair £450 75 l, 75 w, 83 h cm
It’s proving to be a pretty bright new year at Fandango. If the days aren’t yet long enough for your liking, why not add some beautiful light. We were lucky to find four 1920’s French cut glass shades in such a nice size. The oak leave Italian chandelier has a surprising delicacy to its awesome grandeur. There’s plenty of cool lamps we’ve lovingly restored to glory, and let’s not forget the neons. See you on shiny Cross Street x
It’s finally here, no doubt about it the sun is shining and what everyone needs now is an elegant 1920’s deck chair to lie back in and ponder the madness from behind a G and T. This pair from the Torck company of Belgium are some of the best I’ve ever seen. Produced by a company more famous for high end baby prams you can see the care and quality that makes vintage pieces stand out from their contemporary alternatives.
I love the little details like the springs in the canvas seat and the brass studs on the hinges. The canvas is a great shade of orange, nicely weathered but still strong and serviceable. I picked them up on the last trip, apparently they came from a boathouse near Oostende, veterans of many a happy summer on the Belgian Rivera!
£195 the pair
The last day of May and OMG it’s stopped raining! I can’t quite believe it and I have to keep walking outside to check if it’s true. Needless to say it’s made everyone a lot more smiley in Islington and it’s been a pleasure to sort out and photograph the new stock. Just got back from the glaziers with a couple of new mirror shelves for these fine tables, I love the bamboo and brass combination, gotta say if there was room on the boat these would be coming home with me!
