Small But Perfectly Formed!

Telephone Table
1960s Chippy Telephone Table/Seat
As you might have guessed I’m a bit partial to a telephone table and the quirky charm of this delightful little one instantly caught my eye. Beautifully made, it has an extending seat that tucks away when not in use and also benefits from a from a single drawer unit – plus a rather handy wipe-clean, notepad/pull out shelf! Although petite in appearance it easily holds its own and makes quite a statement. It came to me with a broken leg but I put my first aid skills to use to give it a new lease of life, and then jazzed it up with some colourful new upholstery. Sold**


1960s G Plan Chairs

Not sure chairs get more beautiful than this; solid teak frames, tapered legs, curved back rests, floating seat pads – simply stunning craftsmanship. This G Plan range was designed to emphasise curves rather than straight lines, and they do it effortlessly. I went on a bit of a wild goose chase in Derby with my brother-in-law for these. Given we only had a postcode to work with it looked a bit hairy for a while but we returned with bigs smiles after claiming our treasure. Sold**

Sewing Box

1970s Sherbourne Sewing Box

It was hard not to fall in love with this super cute sewing box – splayed dansette legs, lift open lid to hide all your treasures & bright red quilted lining inside – gorgeous! And my delight was aided by its owner letting me have it for £1.50! Saying that removing the old bolted hinges to recover the top was a mini nightmare requiring a trip to B&Q and lots of wood glue. All was quickly forgiven when sizing up the finished product. Sold**
