Feeling at Home


Just wanted to let you know that I've now moved quite a bit of my stock into David Gavin on Burton Road, West Didsbury in Manchester.  My vintage and antique pieces sit very nicely in Matt's beautiful decorative interiors shop.  Matt, the proprietor of David Gavin, is so welcoming I already feel quite at home. 

It does mean that people will be able to view my chandeliers, lamps and other delights without having to make an appointment to meet me at my showroom.  I'll be keeping some of the bigger pieces there for the time being and a quick call to me will help to ascertain where you can see what.

David Gavin is a lovely shop and I'll be doing a more detailed blog post on it in the near future.  For the moment I thought I'd show you some images of my wares in their new setting. 

Below, image of David Gavin shop front as it looked this afternoon.  What a beautiful fresh November day it has been.  My 1960s Swiss desk and my amber glass and copper pendant light look super with the Orla Kiely wallpaper:


Below is the side view in the window:

A few of my vintage light fittings gracing Matt's ceiling space:

 The one on the left in the image above is on the Kitty Fisher's Finds site.  The others will follow but you can email or phone me for details.

This Italian light in the window (above) has the most exquisite fine porcelain flowers on it in lovely delicate colours.

My vintage German desk lamp looks perfect on Matt's zinc-topped wrapping table (or The Pack and Wrap Department as we call it) with that beautiful paper behind:


This pair of French antique glass lamps may look a bit too cosily ensconced in this setting:


Below is a super vintage French standard lamp.  It gives off lots of light when required but add a dimmer and it is beautifully atmospheric.  Had it in my dining room for a few short days and loved it.


So that's how I've spent my Sunday.  It's work, but maybe not as you know it.  I'll keep you informed on how things go in my new home.
