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, sourced from a plethora of private collectors, off-the-beaten-track European street brocantes, hidden vide greniers and international trade fairs.
Today, as enthused as ever by exquisite aesthetics and the ageless beauty of time-worn materials, the Hairsines sell their decorative pieces for homes and gardens online: Hairsines.com | TheHoarde.com | DecorativeCollective.com and at international trade fairs including Ardingly in the UK.
