I absolutely have to share this!

 

This weekend I was surfing on the internet, to find some antiques dealers addresses in the UK, and came across some wonderful websites, not only related to antiques but even to the English gardens! As this address of ARNE MAYNARD, one of the most talented garden designers in the UK.

 

“Attention to detail, both in the planting and the structure of the garden is paramount, and natural materials, from stone to timber, figure prominently and these are always sourced and selected for highest quality. Arne's designs draw on a wide range of references from architecture to garden history, and from interior design to often long-forgotten traditional crafts and techniques. He will use details such as the coping for a wall, the design of a gate or a garden building to add another dimension and bring to a garden a further layer of interest and complexity.” is explained on Arne’s website.

Arne Maynard has a holistic approach to design and believes that to succeed, a garden must relate and respond to its surrounding landscape, its history and to the buildings within and around its confines, as well as to the needs of its owners.

The second address I absolutely want to share with you is LANTIQUES, an antiques dealer situated in the heart of the Antiques region of West Sussex. Although Lantiques is renowed for its wide selection of French farmhouse tables for everyday living, you will also find some beautiful individual pieces of period painted furniture and seating.

I posted some of my favorites!
