  • Digger & Mojo

    Clarissa and Yosh Reilly used to live in Papua New Guinea, where the local motto “expect the unexpected” fits their new vintage furniture emporium in Pewsey very well. Digger and Mojo is a great place for browsing. Here you’ll find a real mix of quirky, fun furniture, and cool 60’s designs amongst more classic and decorative pieces; all chosen for their character and lovingly restored with traditional skills. Clarissa hunts out pieces at auctions, fairs and salvage yards “I always look out for items that have something special to say, and keep a list of things that people have asked us to search for. Some we refurbish to our own designs, and some we keep ready for you to select the colour, finish and fabric that best suits your home.” “There is nothing quite like this between London and Bath, and while our website prices all include shipping to anywhere in the UK, for Wiltshire locals shopping and taking items home themselves from our workshop, we give great discounts. As an example we’ve recently restored a fabulously elaborate Italian mirror. In London it would be over £2000, whereas ours direct from the workshop is just under £500.” ...»

  • Indigo Antiques & Interiors

    Inspired by a love of travel Marion and Richard Lightbown set up Indigo Antiques & Interiors in the early 1970s to introduce beautiful hand crafted Asian furniture to the UK. ‘After meeting in Australia Richard & I returned overland to the UK in a van we bought in Kathmandu. While in Delhi we met a lovely couple whose home was furnished with a fabulous mix of European antiques & Indian pieces. Enthused by what we saw we started importing furniture from Asia, first selling it from a market stall in Camden.’ Since then they’ve had shops in London & Bath – they’ve been at their showroom in Manningford Bruce near Pewsey for 15 years. Brimming with beautifully preserved original painted furniture, they also stock collectibles such as mirrors, Rajasthani bedspreads & handmade paper products. Their shop is an eclectic mix of restored antiques & quirky pieces. ‘We love the original painted furniture from Tibet and Mongolia but that’s high end, so we also sell a more affordable custom made range from China. Like the UK the Chinese use walnut & elm, so the furniture is as comfortable in country homes & cottages as in its native home. Many of the pieces have stunning intricate patterns & our showroom is constantly changing as antiques are so unique’. It’s an unexpected treasure trove that’s a little bit different from the mainstream. Pop in next time you’re passing & you won’t regret it. ...»
