Just in – these reupholstered and refurbished Manhattan recliners By Guy Rogers – Designed by George Fejer and Eric Phamphilon. Manufactured in 1961 – they draw from Danish deigns of the period and are very elegant chairs – they recline by simply lifting up the front seat and have three settings. Really easy to use. Frames are teak and the fabric is a blue velvet – both chairs have been professionally upholstered. I am selling the pair for £600 or £350 individually – they are a bargain at this price and I don’t expect them to hang around for long. H 94cm D 83cm W 68cm 07756211120 if you need any more details – they are on display in the shop. Regards, James

Sheraton style two seated sofa – completely refurbished and reupholstered in beautiful linen floral fabric. Circa 1875 – stamped and numbered. Its a stunning sofa coil sprung seat and back on an inlaid mahogany frame by one of the periods top furniture makers – we think we have given it a fresh twist that makes this piece a rare one off. I will be fitting the brass castors back on this week. The photographs show a cushion seat that we have had made – the sofa is sprung seated so this is just an added extra should you want to use it. This is an incredibly rare sofa – the last one we had was sold in Liberty’s of London for over £3000 – This exceptionally beautiful piece is £1750 direct from us.
Currently hunting down new pieces for our showroom in Clitheroe – here are a few items from our current stock. Really pleased with how this Chesterfield has turned out – it was a red leather number ( picture below ) that was in some serious distress & not the good kind! Our original plan was to repair it but that wasn’t possible. So we stripped it back and completely refurbished it and reupholstered. The result is a stunning settee that’s ready to go for another 30 years. Other nice pieces include a large robust Indian rosewood cabinet – formerly used as a gin cabinet ! I have to admire the former owners verve & gusto ! Its a very heavy piece of furniture with brilliant hand carved detail. I have also found a superb ex school cupboard made from pitch pine – its got great potential and would make a great kitchen cupboard. I still have 21 atomic style coat hooks – all original from 1957 – see below. I will sell individually ( …
22 draws – the top two are heaving with football memorabilia – club badges and famous stars. All these blocks were used to produce football programmes from the early 60’s through to the late 70’s. As a result this is a really interesting find that documents the period and the processes used in printing. Logos from British Rail, Esso and loads more company’s are present along with 16 drawers full of metal typeset of different size and styles. I will be updating with dimensions and some better photos of the chest – Id like to sell the football blocks as a job lot as I think its an amazing collection that would be a shame to split. There are 130 block portraits of legendary players – Bryan Douglas, Ronnie Clayton, George Best, Sir Bobby Charlton, John Galley, Derek Tapscott, John Greig, John Toshack, Frank Casper, Tom Finney, Ron Flowers, Gary Sprake, Billy Bremner and many more. The chest is currently in the showroom – so please call in if you wish to take a closer look. More stock arriving in the next two …
That’s the question on our lips this month – & if it is what should we have…. big questions & bigger decisions. Its good to meditate on the choice on offer – the restorative effects of cod and chips cant be underestimated – but its a dull order, where’s the danger – no edge – fish and chips twice please – where’s the fun in that ? Not one for the lunch time thrill seeker. Sometimes a week must be punctuated – just for kicks – for your own sanity and entertainment – inject some lowball spice into a normally mundane activity. Be bold when ordering a Babies head, chips peas and gravy please – ( whoever named the steak pudding a babies ( pronounced, babby’s hed was undoubtedly an observational genius ) be nonchalant that the connotation is popular enough that you do not need to explain yourself. The most you should get is a slightly raised eyebrow and a warm glow inside that you are allowing the flowers of language to blossom…. Speaking of internal warm glows and raised eyebrow’s – get your mince pies …
