1 How did you get your start?
We had just finished our last project creating and designing our restaurant Amelie and Friends in Chichester and I took a space in an antiques shop also in Chichester.
From there we found an old brewery building in Arundel to create our own space for selling antiques.
2 What challenges are facing the trade in the coming months?
Following Brexit, obtaining stock from France is more challenging for small to medium-size dealers.
3 Have you noticed any collecting trends in the last 6-12 months?
There is still a strong desire for original painted furniture.
4 One lesson you would pass on to others in the trade?
Stay true to yourself and trust your own eye.
5 Who do you admire the art and antiques world?
The person who inspired me when I was 18 years old: my then boss David Taylor, who had an incredible eye.
