Homes & Antiques: October 2019

Miniature furniture

Living with Antiques

Fringed, plaid or striped, Welsh blankets are perennially popular and a topic we touch on as part of our closer look at the wonders of wool, which you’ll enjoy getting wrapped up in this month as the outside temperatures drop. There’s more celebration of traditional craft as we delve into the art of Windsor chairmaking, guided by our maker of the month, Jason Mosseri. For him, it’s all about the detail, as it is for the creators of miniature furniture – a phenomenon we take a very close look at, bringing you new ways to style charming hand-carved pieces. Inspiring homes, not-to-be-missed fairs and auction news round up this glorious issue, which has been given an exciting refresh.
