Ex North Sea saturation diver to the windsurfing industry and now, for the last 20 years, a Decorative antiques dealer – what a great and fascinating journey.
Antiques by Design operating under the Motto, Reclaim, Recycle, Re-use. The company is an innovative and sustainable company that uses a combination of antiques, reclaimed items and old materials to create beautiful and unique interior and exterior pieces.
Antiques by Design’s MD, Guy Chenevix-Trench, is an artisan for the BBC program ‘Money for Nothing’ up-cycling many unusual items into designer furniture and lighting.
Specialising in decorative lighting made from just about anything that is old, rusty, worn out and has the look. We like to call it “saving a small piece of our history”. Creating striking distinctive mirrors from old wooden and metal windows, galvanized water tanks and industrial items. Making furniture out of an amazing amount of unusual vintage farming implements, industrial architectural engineering and reclaimed wood.
Bespoke designs have been created for 100s of restaurant’s, bars, hotels, theme parks and shops all around the world to add a sustainable difference that is quirky and has a unique style.
I are now able to offer a custom reclaimed lighting service, we can turn your favorite old disused items into beautiful decorative lighting or furniture that will be enjoyed for another 200 years.
