I’ve just returned from a visit to the wonderful Bushwood Antiques, and am truly excited. Based in the beautiful countryside near Hemel Hempstead, the drive there is fantastic enough, but not as fantastic as the place itself. Over 7,500 pieces of antique furniture await you, ranging in date from the 16th to early 20th centuries, and priced from as little as £200 to over £20,000! There truly is something here for everyone from chairs to bookcases, bureaux and sideboards.
The reason for this post is that I believe Bushwood to be one of the best dealers in Britain for sourcing antique furniture gems. With over 30 years of experience, owner Tony Bush and his staff make you feel welcome and offer friendly and practical advice making it an ideal destination to buy, whatever your level of experience. So-called ‘brown’ Georgian, Victorian and Edwardian furniture is really making a comeback today and, although prices are beginning to rise, they’re still highly affordable – especially when compared to something you might buy on the high street or in a retail park. You’ll get something unique, individual and indicative of the high quality of hand craftsmanship you just don’t see today. What’s more, the money you ‘invest’ is certainly safer in a piece of antique furniture than it is a modern piece of MDF or chipboard.
