Homes & Antiques – February 2020

Homes & Antiques – February 2020As we enter a new decade, we look back 100 years to the 1920s, when the streamlined good looks of art deco began to take the world by storm. Be inspired by our elegant photoshoot and embrace the glitz and optimism of these energetic times. We also have a treat in-store for you with our four houses – from a bright, 15th-century beamed property in Rye, to a dark and dramatic Victorian flat in London. Unravel the rich history of silk, and discover what sparked the 1950s invention of the String Shelving System, today an icon of modern storage. If you’re seeking a cultural break with excellent foodie options, look no further than our feature on the small Somerset town of Bruton, and don’t forget to check our fabulous fairs and auction listings.
