English antique furniture is more than a sum of its parts, but the parts are often varied and different so that the whole seems disconcertingly complex. There is a logic, of sorts, to English furniture, but there are also delightful eccentricities. I revel in them and will, for example, buy a great country piece as readily as a great high style piece, despite the obvious differences in decorative appeal. It is great furniture that appeals to me—it has to be special. I have been in this business in one form or another for thirty-nine years and there has never been a moment when I have wanted to do something else. Please browse, ask questions and, best of all, come and visit. I guarantee that you will find great beauty herein.

I have travelled to a great many places in America, but I
have never found a tomato that could beat the tomatoes my parents grew in their
vegetable garden. This is not nostalgia speaking, unfortunately, it is a
longing for taste. Tomatoes should be juicy, sweet with a mild acidity and they
should melt in your mouth as you eat them. America seems to have forsaken this
summer fruit for year round access in supermarkets. The hybridized result may
be good for shipping, but not much else.
