More About Designer 
Born in Paris, Dufrêne became one of the worlds finest decorative artists using a variety of different material, including ceramics, metal and glass as well using top quality wood. He took an early interest in furniture making by finding off cuts of wood and other materials left over that he found in his fathers supply and made them into art pieces - this really ignited the artist in him.
Although Dufrêne originally set his sights on being a painter, he took a position La Maison Moderne which displayed pieces from the popular Art Nouveau style - he later moved on to Art Deco and at aged just 23 became the gallery’s director. He worked with many esteemed designers and continued working on his own designs. From the early 1900’s he displayed his work at Salon d'Automne. Soon after, Dufrêne alongside other designers, founded the Societé des artistes décorateurs, and would have his work on display for many years. Read more....

Handsome sideboard bought in mid December, and delivered to Germany 10 days later (despite chaos at Dover). The sellers made this a neat straightforward transaction, and wrapped it, for the journey, with TLC.

I recently brought an Art Deco dressing table from the furniture rooms. The piece was exactly as described and Im very pleased with it. They were extremely easy to deal with, prompt with their replies, and the delivery arrived exactly when arranged. Very good service all round

We bought two club chairs from Toby and Katie. The chairs are great and good value, and they were very reliable and organised sellers. However the best thing was that - without being asked - they offered for us to check the condition of the chairs when they were delivered and to take them back if we were not happy. This was incredibly fair. In the end the chairs were exactly as described.
