“WHAT BETTER TIME THAN TO REFLECT ON WHAT WE BELIEVE WERE THE FINEST PIECES OF 2023”

With the curtains closing on 2023, what better time than to reflect on what we believe were the finest pieces of 2023.
Pieces that have passed through to find their new home and pieces that still reside in the showroom.

Of course, it can be a little like choosing between children, however we’ve managed all the same, and do hope they provide some inspiration over the festive season.

We hope you enjoy.

Amongst our favourites are a few pieces that have graced their new homes in 2023, and so their stories continue…
