Antiques dealer +interior decorator
I am an Interior Decorator and Antique Dealer based in Somerset. I grew up surrounded by lived-in country house interiors and from an early age was taken by my grandfather on buying trips to flea markets and antiques fairs. My style has developed from these surroundings and passions, and I would describe it as a comfortable, well loved feel, with a layered, lived-in look. For further images and stock, please follow me on instagram @tradchap, as items are listed there first.
I specialise in the in the sourcing and sale of country house furniture, soft furnishings and lighting. I am not fond of over-restoration, so typically present the items in their original condition, with the character of the patina gained through their age apparent. I tend to source items I would have in my own house, so include glazed cabinets, comfortable antique sofas and decorative items found on my travels. My customer base is broad, from Private Clients through to trade suppliers. I keep my prices as affordable as possible.
The photographs on this website show a selection of what I have in stock. There are many more pieces of furniture and soft furnishings items in my shop and awaiting listing. Items are firstly listed on instagram @tradchap, but my shop is in Somerton, near Taunton, and is typically open Saturday - Tuesday every week, or other times by appointment.
I have appeared in House and Garden, the Observer, Times Luxx and English Homes magazine.
