Callie Hollenden has specialised in antiques and decorative items for thirty years.  Her smart, sophisticated country house and town house interiors mirror her exacting standards and uncompromising quality.

She firmly believes a range of styles and eras can comfortably co exist.  A 17th century tapestry is easily displayed in the same setting as a 20th century lucite dining table.

A passion for collecting began from an early age: "I never know what I'm going to find and always keep an open mind.  I've bought some exquisite, wonderful and wacky items over the years."

She has an interesting selection of 17th, 18th and 19th century painted furniture, fruitwood furniture, mirrors, lighting, works of art and objects extraordinaire.
