back story

Back story

Kevin, a northern chef, met Jenni, a southern book editor, at the beginning of the 21st century. Sharing a passion for history and an admiration of interesting interiors, they travelled to Greece, Spain, France, Belgium, Italy, Switzerland, South Africa, USA, Canada and Thailand, fuelling their creative energy and developing their style – and learning a bit about business.

By 2010, with their three children in tow, Kevin and Jenni founded their business in the East of England, selling decorative homewares at local markets and county fairs.

The ensuing decades of hard work, steep learning curves, and constant buying and selling have enabled Kevin and Jenni to grow what has become their family business – HAIRSINES LLP – into a charming showcase of decorative antique homeware, paintings, carvings and primitive folkart.

Quarried from a blend of international trade fairs, street brocantes, vide greniers, flea markets and private collectors, HAIRSINES' stock aspires to the aesthetic:

...the timeless beauty of age-worn materials...
