Where we buy

About Us We have been sourcing beds from France since we were established in 2004. We mainly buy in and around Bordeaux and South West France but we also travel the country during our buying trips to find French beds, small items of furniture and collectables including lighting, mirrors and kichenalia.  We make regular trips to our base in France throughout the year and buy from contacts we have made over the last 10 years.  We have purchased single items from local Chateaux as well as a large group of beds from a dusty attic which once served as a poplar town hotel.  All our finds have a story to tell, it would be lovely to hear them, but its now up to you to create your own story with our furniture.  All our items are vintage or antique, mostly dating between 1900 and 1970.  If you can’t find what you are looking for website then do contact us, we may have suitable items in stock in France or in the UK waiting to be listed.  We love what we buy, and we hope you do too.

Our extendable slatted bed base works well with most of our double beds. It sits on the 4 strengthened corners of most French antique iron beds and needs no central support. Likewise it works well with French antique wooden beds sitting within a frame to provide support for your mattress.

Our extendable slatted bed base also can be used with British Antique beds.

Feel free to discuss with us how best to make your own base for any of our beds.
