-To Celebrate An Exceptionally Successful Year –

Clare Antiques and Interiors has the best team of staff in Europe. Each one is unique in his own particular sphere. When they come together, they are awesome. They cater for the needs of nearly a hundred dealers who entrust their wares for presentation in designated spaces within the building. Their dedication is beyond belief. Their enthusiasm is akin to none.
David runs the warehouse building in its entirety like clockwork. He was described in one of the glossies recently as “leaping from floor to floor like a gazelle”. David is a man of many talents. This enables him to transform from chief executive to financial director and from advertising mogul to public relations, all in the blink of an eye. He also makes his own bread. David excels as a multi tasker and he is a trouble shooter of the highest calibre. Our dealers often telephone David for advice and his counsel is much sought after. His quick fire wit and humorous asides are legendary.
Michael is an artistic guru and he can turn the gloomiest space into a breathtaking display that packs a powerful punch. His ensembles are innovative and smart. With a tweak here and a pinch there, Michael can transform a lacklustre set into an exciting visual concept to delight the senses and create maximum impact. His opinion in style and fashion is positively clamoured after. Many clientele travel a great distance to see Michael, they desire that his flair will rub off on them.
Robin is a super salesman who catapults around the warehouse armed with his encyclopedic knowledge. He can frequently be heard saying “that could be yours, madam”. There’s nothing worth knowing about that he doesn’t know in the field of antiques. Robin loves to be challenged on his knowledge and he always delivers the goods. He has a cheery word and a new joke for every situation. Robin always comes up with a novel logistical solution for the buyer at home and abroad.
The warehouse is a huge outlet for lots of different dealers on four floors under one roof. The atmosphere is always friendly and busy with furniture and interesting items coming and going all the time. There are two staff members on hand at all times, combinations of either David, Michael or Robin. The staff are very helpful and funny and usually running around looking after customers and moving things around or in and out of the building.
Clare Antiques and Interiors has the biggest selection of antiques and furniture for your home. They also have items to make ideal gifts for your family and friends.
The warehouse is enormous and extends over four floors containing goods on display from over 75 individual dealers.
Two experienced staff are on hand at all times to help and advise.
