Welcome to Charnwood Antiques...
In 2015, after trading from our showrooms
at Sawbridgeworth for 18 years, we swapped the shop
for a more flexible, solely online showroom. You are still able
to see our furniture in person just give us a call to view at a time that is convenient
to you at our workshop near Ongar, Essex or take advantage
of our 'Try Before You Buy' service, where we bring items to
your home to try in situ. For those of you further afield we
use a specialist antiques & fine art courier to deliver throughout
the UK & for your assurance we give comprehensive condition
reports by telephone or by e-mail (See About Us page).
What Our Customers Say...
We purchased a fabulous George
III dining table from Charnwood. There was some minor restoration
to do which Nigel has completed with enormous skill & care.
We were looking for dining chairs to match. Nigel & Nicola kept
us alerted to in-coming stock & found just what we wanted. The
chairs were then beautifully upholstered from a very good selection
of materials. We have the furniture we wanted at very reasonable
prices. It's very tempting to keep going back!.
We first bought furniture from Nigel and Nicola over a decade ago and we're
always impressed with the quality of the furniture they have to hand or that
they were able to locate for us when we were looking for something specific.
I find it very unnerving and
difficult to order furniture online, however on looking at Charnwood
Antiques' website I found the very wardrobe that would suit my home
and also take all my clothes. Before taking the step of ordering
I telephoned Nigel and he was extremely helpful by measuring the
wardrobe inside, as to the width of coat hangers it would accommodate
and length of clothes. All very important to a female. I would recommend
both Nicola and Nigel for their attention to detail & workmanship,
they both delivered the beautiful Edwardian wardrobe to my home
in Cumbria, a 5 hour drive away from their business premises, installed
it and also helped dismantle and place in another bedroom my existing
It is with pleasure that we can recommend Charnwood Antiques. We have
been customers for around 16 years & have purchased a George III
Chest, Georgian chest on chest, George IV dressing mirror, Sutherland
table, Regency Mirror, antique prints etc. as well as having items
repaired & restored by Nigel. Buying antiques is a minefield, we
must have trust in the vendor - with Nigel & Nicola we felt from the
beginning that their aim was long term customer satisfaction &
their goal was return business - it was and it worked! Living in
Switzerland, we have also come to value the extra care and service
offered by Charnwood. Pieces are sourced, restored, stored and even
shipped to us, all perfectly co-ordinated and providing real service,
something so rare today. It is a pleasure to visit the showrooms &
discuss the latest projects, it's a definite stop on our visits to the
Lovely barometer sympathetically restored so that it retained its
original features and worked.
I arrived at Charnwood Antiques
in search of a simple chest of drawers. I couldn't see anything
in the showroom but Nigel had a chest of drawers in the workshop
which had just arrived but had not been restored. He was hugely
helpful, showing me examples of how the wood would look once restored
& spent a long time measuring & discussing the piece in
