My partner and I have been collecting unique, decorative antiques for the past 10 years, travelling far and wide sourcing the best our pockets could afford.

TSFS was created as a platform for us to share our passion for out of the ordinary objects and functional furniture.

Our collections are filled with items that show their age and hold beauty in their deterioration, assisting the creation of your own inspired interior.

In addition to selling, select pieces are also available for hire for photo shoots, filming or events. Please contact us with any requests.
