Located at 18-20 High Street, the venture combines the businesses Chris Tapsell Oriental Antiques – which also has premises in Islington, north London – and Arundel Decorative, part of David Wigdor Antiques.
It is aimed at “bringing brown furniture back to the high street”, according to Susan Wigdor of Arundel Decorative, as well as giving shoppers a place to “come and browse in a friendly and comfortable environment”.
She adds: “We are extremely encouraged with the interest and sales generated in the first few months of opening.”
The shop is based in a flint and brick building that dates to 1769 and is open Tuesday- Sunday from 10.30am-5pm or at any other time by prior appointment.
