    Buying Vintage Furniture is our passion here at Lovingly Made.  Each piece we buy is an investment piece for your home, that will look as beautiful now as it will in 30, 50, 70 years times.  


    Because they are all made with glorious style, with a certain panache, top end quality, with materials that were made to last the test of time and with skilled craftmanship.

    It can feel like taking a 'deep gulp of air' when making that step to purchase that 'investment piece' of vintage furniture. The important part of this decision, is to remember is that quality vintage pieces don't loose their value over time. Mainly because their designs and their style continue to mature and evolve with time, thus gaining value.

    They are beautifully unique and those special one-offs that your family and friends will gravitate to. As soon as they come into your home they will say: "where did you get that from?"...

    Today we are seeing a marked increase with our customers thinking of their 'vintage furniture purchase', as they would be buying a piece of artwork or something as equally precious in their lives.

    They really appreciate their piece of vintage furniture both as a utility piece, that they can use practically but see it as something that is also an investment in their homes too.

    We would like to think that there are some positive reasons that sum up why investing in vintage furniture is such a great investment:
    • It is ultimately made with true craftsmanship
    • It is unique in its making and genuine natural materials
    • Each piece will tell you its own vintage historical beautiful story
    • It will evolve increasingly, both in its beauty and value
    • You will fall in love with it more and more each day, which is a perfect place to start with a piece of furniture that you will look at and use every day in your home...
    • It is an individual as you are, it is not mass produced, it is personal to you, it is inspirational and loved

    We have regular collections of vintage furniture, curios, emporia, gardenalia, arrive from France and English markets and endeavour to pop onto the website as quickly as we can. Our Instagram and Facebook pages are always a great place to see regular updates too.

    We hope that you will enjoy looking through our garden and home pages here and perhaps we will see you in our Vintage Boutique very soon. If you are in Sussex, pop over and see our collections of investment pieces, which we know you will love and will look beautiful in your home.

     Vintage Pine Buffet - www.lovinglymadeltd.co.uk

    Stunning Vintage Pine Buffet

    This stunning French Vintage Pine Buffet, fitted into the space required within an inch! The owner is delighted as it is being used to store material and sewing equipment, so all beautifully put away and the buffet looks beautiful as a piece of furniture in the study room too.

    On the left of this buffet are two items that this lovely lady has made with us in our Craft School,  a "Dilly" bag and "Etuile" box, and on the right hand side, a beautiful glass lantern from our home collection within our Vintage Boutique. So many reasons to come along to see us!

    Apple Ladder and Vintage Bench - www.lovinglymadeltd.co.uk

    Stunning Vintage Orchard Ladder and Vintage Bench in Sussex

    These two items of beautiful vintage gardenalia are now sitting proudly in a quite famous home in Sussex (sadly I can't say where), but they are being so well looked after! The orchard ladder will certainly being used for picking apples and pears this summer and I am certain copious cups of tea will be drunk, sitting comfortably on this lovely bench after a hard day's work in the huge vegetable garden!

    Refurbished Tin Box - www.lovinglymadeltd.co.uk

    Refurbished vintage tin box on one of our beautiful vintage elm stools

    Recently I was asked to clean and refurbish this delightful tin Victorian box with the most exquisite hand painted writing on it.  It had been used by a shoe maker, who kept all his shoe making tools inside, and upon each of his children growing out of their pair of shoes, he would either make them bigger with inserting a piece of leather or smaller to fit a younger sibling.  What a beautiful story.  The vintage elm stool just set the whole scene off together.

    So, from making a sewing box, to refurbishing old tin boxes, to gathering apples from trees, to sitting comfortably, we think we have most things covered. Why not pop over and see what we can do for you!

    We would love to see you.
