This family business was started by Simon's father in 1987 in the City of Bath where they traded for 10 years as Beau Nash House Antiques. Simon joined his father in 1997 when they renamed the business Freshfords Fine Antiques. Simon's father retired in 2005 and the business has now moved to the shop in Bradford-on-Avon.
Freshfords have been exhibiting at antique fairs since the early 90's and currently exhibit at prestigious London events held by BADA at the Duke of York's on the Kings Road, Chelsea and various other national fairs. Their stock is of the highest quality and is always chosen for its originality, design and of course style. Each carefully selected piece is extensively researched, and illustrated online using superb photographic images together with detailed information and provenance, allowing their customers to buy with complete confidence.
Their reputation has been built on sourcing outstanding pieces of furniture by all the leading makers and designers such as Chippendale, Sheraton, Hope and Holland, and they are one of the leading dealers in furniture from the eminent firm of Gillow. As elected members of BADA and CADA they pride themselves not only in their stock but also their attention to detail in providing customers with the best possible service.
