With styles ranging from country house to industrial chic to mid-century modern, highlights of the sale include a workbench converted into a cool and characterful dining table, an iconic piece of 20th century British design in the form of a ‘Reigate’ rocking chair by William Plunkett, and a vibrant pair of 1930s circus lights.

Having existed for many years and often having been passed from generation to generation, choosing antique and vintage items instead of buying brand new can be the most environmentally conscious way of furnishing a home. Not only does this auction, with its selection of stylish and sustainable pieces which have been lovingly rescued and restored, allow bidders to contribute to what some believe to be the purest form of recycling , but it also offers an opportunity to own something truly unique that cannot be found in any high street store. 

A 'Try Your Grip' machine by Ruffler & Walker £200-£400
