When December comes round, there is that feeling of de ja vu, quite reasonably. It is the one constant in our lives for most folk in this country anyway. The seasons come and go, the easter period can be early spring or late, depending on the moon – very odd, that particular timing! With all these shifts of time, the furniture we use and love becomes part of the fabric of our lives. This is more relevant of course when we have really old houses, with furnishings that have been handed down from generation to generation. We can try to get a lovely selection of family favourites from dedicated online sites – it is never going to be quite the same as knowing that your family has used this item or that for several generations, but heritage has to start somewhere and buying today’s antiques will ensure they continue to be treasured for yet more years!
