Harry Styles of One Direction is an antiques champion

12 June 2012Written by Gabriel Berner

He's an 18-year-old heart-throb in one of the world’s most popular boy bands. So it may surprise you a bit to know that Harry Styles of One Direction is also an antiques fan.

This picture of him, next to an 18th century chest of drawers he had snapped up, was taken at the Kempton fair last month by Nigel Worboys of Worboys Antiques & Clocks, based in Beaconsfield, Buckinghamshire.

Nigel said Harry "bought a vanload" for a flat he is furnishing, and is keen to promote the "antiques are green movement".
