The journey that Antique furniture takes over hundreds of years fascinates me. At Jamb we focus on the English Country house aesthetic, buying English antique furniture from the seventeenth to the nineteenth centuries. Sometimes I wonder what stories these pieces could tell? What different parts of the world have they seen and how many times have they crossed the seas?
I travelled to the USA on a buying trip with a business partner. The trip didn’t start as well as planned. A huge snow storm descended on the Canadian/ American border and we had to postpone buying which resulted in us watching ‘The Big Lebowski’ in the local village hall! After the snow cleared we did find some really interesting pieces including a beautiful mahogany table in the Grecian revival style.
