Inspired by proportion, colour, texture and the eccentric, Arabesque are essentially English country house, with the emphasis on grand scale and creative pieces from the attic, kitchen, garden and estate cottage.

Peter has a particular affinity in two disciplines.  The first being painted furniture, where he has an uncanny eye for seeking out pieces that have been painted many times over the years and, together with Dawn, they peel back the layers to reveal a pieces true character, Dawn only enhancing through skilled decoration, such paintwork that originally existed, but which might require a sensitive hand to restore it to it's former glory.

The second is a love for, and great understanding, of English antique garden ornament. Over the years, Peter has sourced some unique and incredible pieces, all of which become rarer and harder to find.

Run by Peter and Dawn Whipps, client's are welcome to view their collection of unique items, by appointment only please.
