Shabby chic c’est freak!
Hmmm, you’ve reached an older feature - let’s get you up to date! Read our latest Design features here.
When S and I rented a shoe-box in St John’s Wood, we lived bang opposite the Saatchi Gallery. Did we ever go there? No, not until the day we moved out. It took us years to ‘discover’ something great that had been right under our noses.
Now I’m having deja vu because I’ve only just gone to Pinefinders in Haddenham, despite living around here for bloody years. If you’re looking for gorgeous shabby chic armoires and cabinets or made-to-measure tables made from reclaimed pine floorboards, this is your place.
The stock comes in mostly from Eastern Europe and is sold on to traders as well as the public. No tat and no pine that’s been tango-ed. Some of the pieces are new, others antique, and new stock comes in every day. Check it out online at www.pinefinders.co.uk and let us know if you find anything you like.
