Our furniture, accessories and collectables are all vintage, most decades old. The pieces are rarely in mint or as-new condition given their life experience, but we try to choose pieces that have been used “gently” and are in very good “vintage condition.” Our pieces are cleaned and if necessary, carefully repaired, restored and refinished before going out on the floor for sale. As for small nicks, bumps and discolourations, just think of all the history those “character spots” represent. And embrace the Japanese aesthetic of “wabi-sabi” ... that is beauty is imperfect, impermanent and incomplete. We like to think of our pieces as aging gracefully ... we can only wish the same for ourselves.
