Anton & K Decorative Antiques are well known for their understated and elegant signature style: think 18th to 20th Century Swedish and French antiques - everything from exquisitely carved secretaries, Gustavian commodes, elegant consoles and dry-scraped tables and chairs; to antique French armchairs and beautiful footstools, brought back to life, with characterful linen and hemp upholstery. Add in a carefully sourced collection of unique decorative antique finds: foxed mirrors, encrusted stoneware, patina-rich metal objet and rustic wooden treasures; and it is easy to see why they have become the go-to trusted source for private buyers, interior designers and trade antique dealers. 

Founded by Anthony and Karen Cull, the business was born out of a passion for a time-worn aesthetic that celebrates natural imperfections, original painted veneers and the faded patina that comes with authenticity. In an age when the high street is full of homogeneous reproduction copies, their aim is to sell only genuine antiques, for customers who appreciate provenance-rich pieces, that will stand the test of time.

Stock is intuitively sourced throughout the UK and Europe and is constantly being updated with new compelling finds. 

All items can be purchased directly online or viewed, by appointment only, at the Anton & K warehouse, just outside the historic Cotswold town of Winchcombe in Gloucestershire.
