Our aim at Lionheart is to offer one-off decorative antiques to descerning private buyers, collectors, interior designers and decorators, with emphasis on decorative British, european, colonial and middle eastern furniture, also vintage pieces with character, stylish mid century furniture and mirrors, in particular pieces that can add a decorative statement. Our pieces look good in town or in country, in complete period settings, or as elements or accents in contemporary spaces.
Lionheart Interiors source genuine 17th century pieces, all the way through to the 1970ʼs, we love the idea of mixing it all up, it's a fresh and exciting way of creating unique interiors using antiques, vintage and mid century items whilst recycling objects that may once have been considered obsolete.
Concentrating on the conservation and care of antique furniture, it has long been apparent to us the importance of recycling furniture and in doing so, helping to reduce the impact of disposable products on the environment. It's a known fact that an antique's carbon footprint is 16 times less than the modern manufactured equivelant. Lionheart Interiors also intend to offer bespoke items of upcycled furniture, using salvaged woods and antique fragments, for making cupboards, bookcases and dining tables, we shall implement a dedicated page for these items.
Lionheart Interiors is based in the historic riverside town of Bewdley, Worcestershire, and is owned by Leanne and Nigel Mayall. Leanne initially studied art, but her fasination with antiques began as a child, with her family owning a string of antique shops from the 1970s- 1990's, where she would often help out. Later she began working alongside her long time partner Nigel, who had an antique restoration business which he started in the early '90's.
Since those days a plethora of antique items have been brought back to former glory, ranging from vintage car dashboards, grand pianos through to 17th & 18th century family heirlooms for many satisfied customers from top interior decorators, owners of large country house estates, celebrities to american antique dealers and corporate businesses.
Having worked in a restoration workshop for many years, the idea of selling antiques seemed a natural progression for the couple. After discovering the concept of decorative antiques, they have decided to use their knowledge, to source and sell a growing collection of antique furniture and interiors online, lovingly restored (if neccessary), carefully selected for style, strength of design, originality, plus a special quality that raises it above the ordinary.
