Choosing old pieces that have history rather than always buying new is the most sustainable and often the most enjoyable approach to furnishing our homes.
This month, we bang the drum for sustainability and show you various ways you can be as carbon neutral as possible which will also mean supporting the antiques and auction worlds at the same time.
Mark Hill shares his thoughts on the joy of the everyday antiques in his life that are used daily and we speak to various H&A contributors and experts about the simple pieces that mean a great deal to them.
Plus, we go behind the scenes at the V&A Wedgwood Collection, speak to Tony Freund of 1stDibs, discover the thrill of rococo ceramics and reveal the stately homes-turned luxury hotels where you can stay in splendour.
