Antique prowlers, take a breather and let Fears and Kahn do the dirty work for you. The exclusively-online U.K. antiques and design gallery has been sourcing, revamping, and designing vintage furniture for over ten years. So whether it’s a 1950s Birchwood cabinet or funky violet console that you’ve been hunting, halt your consignment shop quest and visit their virtual store.

The gallery is run by Alan Fears and Pippa Kahn. Kahn, influenced by her mother’s antiques dealing, first got started in the vintage world after a trawl for 1970s bell-bottoms.

Today, the couple draws inspiration from Fears’ artwork. Be sure to check out their studio pieces, like their Index Bookcase, that transform his paintings into furniture designs. With their bright colors and whimsical patterns, they certainly jolt a little bit of joy into furniture that's tried and true.
