Lorfords Antiques brings together a fabulous and inspiring collection of decorative antiques from 18th century through to 20th century design – and is a must for antique dealers, interior designers and discerning private buyers.
Lorfords have been trading in Tetbury since 2003, and in 2013 opened their second show space in nearby Babdown. Within a transformed aircraft hangar, Lesley and Toby have created a stage for a renowned collection of 22 European decorative dealers.
Lorfords Design is an independent interior design service specialising in residential projects. Based in both London and Gloucestershire, the family run design team apply their extensive knowledge of the history of style, with design expertise gained through qualifications at KLC School of Design.
Created is our contemporary range of furniture and lighting. Either hand made in the Cotswolds by trusted local craftsmen, or sourced from the myriad of fabulous artisans we have met across the world, the range is inspired by the items we have owned and loved. We combine our inspiration with meticulous attention to detail, exquisite finishes and luxurious comfort.
The modern movement was inspired by the principles of clarity and simplicity, removing all forms of ornamentation and adhering to the idea that ‘form follows function’. By the 1930’s Modernism had become a recognised design style, based on geometry, uninterrupted lines and modern industrial materials.
The modernist aesthetic is a style that is becoming increasingly popular, in part due to its simple functionality that works wonderfully in the smaller living spaces of London dwellers. At Lorfords we love the juxtaposition of modernist pieces styled alongside antique items.
