1950s Alfred Cox Chest of Drawers
British manufacturer Alfred Cox produced high quality designs which retailed in Heals throughout the 1950s & 60s. I’ve generally considered their furniture to be out of my league so I was pretty excited when this striking chest of drawers came my way! Made from veneered walnut panels and sat on wonderful angular legs it screams glamour. Unfortunately the one I have looks like it has been through a warzone, and I’ve never worked with walnut so its restoration should be interesting (aka, long & hardwork, urgh!)

1960s Ercol TV Cabinet
Another absolute show stopper from Lucian Ercolani. As with all Ercol pieces this cabinet has been constructed from solid elm and has a striking grain pattern! Its complete with oval lock handles, original shephards castors & dovetail joinery. The doors are on tracks and can be tucked inside the TV compartment to create a delightful cinema experience. I dragged my poor husband down some dark country lanes to collect this one and it didn’t fit in his car! Fortunately the owner saved the day (and my tears) by generously offering to deliver it. Sold**
