Our Story

Twenty years ago, a northern chef met a southern book editor. They shared a passion for world history and an admiration of beautiful home decor. They travelled the world to grow their big ideas. A few years on, and with their three small children in tow, they embarked on growing their own decorative antiques business, selling at local markets and county fairs.


A decade of hard work, steep learning curves, and constant buying and selling have led them to develop their family business – HAIRSINES – into a veritable showcase of decorative antique pieces and primitive folkart. Sourcing from a plethora of private collectors, off-the-beaten-track European street brocantes, secluded vide greniers and international trade fairs, today they are as driven as ever by the exquisite aesthetics and ageless beauty of time-worn materials.
