THING OF THE PAST
Be the proud owner of a piece of British history with this reupholstered Victorian sofa from Blighty Antiques. We love the low back and intricate carvings on the mahogany frame. It costs £1,850.00.
OH SO VERSATILE
‘Patchwork’ is a natty piece of furniture: each part can be detached and moved to create more or less space – perfect for sprawling out or cuddling up. It costs upwards of £3,155.
