There are 18 days until the start of astronomical Spring when the sun is directly above the Equator line but meteorological Spring started on the 1st March! 

Spring, the official start of traditional ‘Spring Cleaning’! That wonderful time of the year for wiping off the cobwebs and shaking out the dust. Time to put away lots of those winter comforts to store until the days are shorter again. Coincidently, our range of sideboards are perfect for storage throughout the year!

Our 2845 Old Charm Sideboard (shown here) is a generous sideboard that offers two drawers and a three door cupboard, allowing plenty of space for all sorts of storage. 

Featuring classic fielded panel doors which perfectly showcase the character of the oak. The reed moulding on the drawer front and scratch carving on the frame allow it to complement a variety of cabinet styles due to it simple lines.

“We dream of having a clean house - but who dreams of actually doing the cleaning? We don't have to dream about doing the work, because doing the work is always within our grasp; the dream, in this sense, is to attain the goal without the work.” Marcus Buckingham

Polishing Tip: Spray or deposit a small amount of the wax polish onto a soft cloth (never spray directly on the furniture) and work it in, wiping with the grain.

In England in the 16th century occasional tables were adapted for the purpose of chess and other board table games. Chess had been adapted to westernised rules and became hugely popular with the Upper and Upper Middle classes. During this time chess tables and game tables were constructed of wood, many with bespoke needlepoint patterns for the game board. 

These game tables became further developed and more detailed in the 18th century. During this time, card tables reached their peak of popularity and tended to have lavish and artistic detail. By the late 18th century the tables were more practical pieces made to fold, and were finely decorated in the Directoire style, which featured simple angles and hand painting. 

At Old Charm, we have improvised our own version of a Games Table with echoes from the 16th century. It is a limited edition luxury item that creates much interest due to its ornately carved bulbous leg, secret drawer filled with gaming tools and marquetry top.

The Old Charm Amberley Drop-leaf table is one of our best selling tables.

Drop-leaf tables are found mostly in England where they date back to the late sixteenth century: Elizabethan era and Jacobean era. One of the biggest advantages of this type of table is that it can be used in even the most crowded areas.

The ability to let the leaves down when not in use is an exceptional benefit for anyone who is struggling with space issues. The drop-leaf table will fit nicely in small areas, yet provide the functionality of a large table when necessary.

The Footstool joined our sofa collections in early 2015. Our little footstool has a classic wooden plinth that can be finished to any of the Old Charm finishes. Footstools have been around since ancient times. Egyptians crafted and used footstools to help royalty ascend to their high-seated chairs and to provide support to for their feet while sitting. 

From the 1600s through to the early 1800s, footstools were multifunctional. Not only could they act as a footrest, they also provided seating.  In the early 1800s Regency period, footstools became more ornately fashioned and could be found decorating drawing rooms and sitting rooms. Many featured hand-carved patterns and detailed needlework or beading that contributed to their unique character. 

It is a perfectly neat and tidy piece that is great for resting your feet upon after a busy day. It is equally versatile as a spare seat for the grandchildren! Starting at only £269 at the full recommended retail price, this is a real gem of a stool. Dimensions: 52(w) x 43(d) x 41(h) cm.

The footstool is shown here in Wentworth Linen (a Grade B fabric). There is an extensive upholstery swatch available, the fabrics of which we source internationally to ensure the widest choice of styles and colours. Within the swatch there are five grades fabrics to choose from. 

For more information, please do not hesitate to contact our customer service department on 01920 469241

The style today is for sofas with complementary, not matching, seating. This gives you the freedom to play with different styles, fabrics, patterns and textures. Shown here is our Lavenham Collection medium sofa alongside our Burnham Collection armchair and small footstool. We have used a mixture of leather and fabric to create a relaxed, cosy lounge space.
