Last Friday started out cold and early for Steve and the workshop boys, who at 7.30am, rubbed their hands together as the doors of our latest container were thrown open. The arrival of a shipment is always an exciting thing, a little bit like Christmas. Everything comes individually wrapped, and there’s a sense of anticipation in the air. You recall buying the pieces on the other side of the world and silently thank someone for the fact that your things have arrived safe and sound.
Soon after, work begins on cleaning up what needs to be done, and John, Jamie and Colin perform their restoration miracles on the pieces that need a little T.L.C – we are talking about antiques afterall!
Pieces that don’t need any restoration are loaded onto the van and brought into our showroom straight away. I have listed a few new bits on the website so no need to go out in the cold if you don’t want to! The shipment has in it your typical ‘Capocchi’ combination of the old and the vintage, from Industrial to Art Deco. Speaking of Art Deco, make sure that you check out the amazing leather suite that has come in store, two armchairs and a three seater sofa, with the most amazing curved back- I can’t get enough of those lines that are so typical of that era. Also in, a pair of Giant Schnauzer dog figurines, for those Schnauzer crazy people out there. A unique swinging steel chair and four curved steel dining chairs add to the mix something of an industrial feel. All in all a wonderful and varied collection with literally something for everyone. We look forward to showing you our collection..
