Jonathan Dyas has been indulging his passion for antiques for over 30 years; from an early interest in restoring original pieces and researching their provenance, has grown an established antiques business based in South West London. As decorative styles and tastes evolve, his quest for both quality and quirky items has resulted in AJD Contemporary - an eclectic mix of furniture and accessories spanning many design periods. Whether crafted in the 17th or 21st century, good quality and expert design are to the fore, as antique and modern pieces increasingly co-exist in traditional and contemporary spaces.

Current stock ranges from oak coffers made in the reign of Charles I to iconic film posters from the sixties - and much more in between. While Jonathan’s enthusiasm for fine Georgian furniture is undiminished, he continues to expand his inventory to reflect his clients’ tastes in new areas such as 20th century art and sculpture.

AJD Contemporary is an online business with all items available to view by appointment.
