Welcome to Charnwood Antiques
After trading from our showrooms at Sawbridgeworth for 18 years, we have swapped the shop for a more flexible online showroom. You now have the opportunity to make appointments to view our furniture at a time that is convenient to you at our new workshop near Ongar, Essex as well as taking advantage of our 'Try Before You Buy' service, where we bring items to your home to try in situ. For those of you further afield we use a specialist antiques & fine art courier to deliver throughout the UK & for your assurance we give comprehensive condition reports by telephone or by e-mail (See About Us page).
You can also view a good selection of our stock at the regular antiques fairs we attend.

What Our Customers Say...

I find it very unnerving and difficult to order furniture online, however on looking at Charnwood Antiques' website I found the very wardrobe that would suit my home and also take all my clothes. Before taking the step of ordering I telephoned Nigel and he was extremely helpful by measuring the wardrobe inside, as to the width of coat hangers it would accommodate and length of clothes. All very important to a female. I would recommend both Nicola and Nigel for their attention to detail & workmanship, they both delivered the beautiful Edwardian wardrobe to my home in Cumbria, a 5 hour drive away from their business premises, installed it and also helped dismantle and place in another bedroom my existing Victorian wardrobe.
Thank you both and I look forward to purchasing a dressing table and chair to match the wardrobe.

It is with pleasure that we can recommend Charnwood Antiques. We have been customers for around 16 years & have purchased a George III Chest, Georgian chest on chest, George IV dressing mirror, Sutherland table, Regency Mirror, antique prints etc. as well as having items repaired & restored by Nigel. Buying antiques is a minefield, we must have trust in the vendor - with Nigel & Nicola we felt from the beginning that their aim was long term customer satisfaction & their goal was return business - it was and it worked! Living in Switzerland, we have also come to value the extra care and service offered by Charnwood. Pieces are sourced, restored, stored and even shipped to us, all perfectly co-ordinated and providing real service, something so rare today. It is a pleasure to visit the showrooms & discuss the latest projects, it's a definite stop on our visits to the UK.

We purchased a fabulous George III dining table from Charnwood. There was some minor restoration to do which Nigel has completed with enormous skill & care. We were looking for dining chairs to match. Nigel & Nicola kept us alerted to in-coming stock & found just what we wanted. The chairs were then beautifully upholstered from a very good selection of materials. We have the furniture we wanted at very reasonable prices. It's very tempting to keep going back!.
Both Nicola & Nigel are extremely knowledgeable & Nigel is an excellent craftsman. I recommend Charnwood unreservedly.

Lovely barometer sympathetically restored so that it retained its original features and worked.
The care with sales and transport were exemplary. Antiques with a heart and soul.
Susan Allison

I arrived at Charnwood Antiques in search of a simple chest of drawers. I couldn't see anything in the showroom but Nigel had a chest of drawers in the workshop which had just arrived but had not been restored. He was hugely helpful, showing me examples of how the wood would look once restored & spent a long time measuring & discussing the piece in question.
We bought the piece & are delighted with the restoration.
I can happily recommend Charnwood Antiques both for the quality of the products & the service provided.

Catherine Heaney

We first bought furniture from Nigel and Nicola over a decade ago and we're always impressed with the quality of the furniture they have to hand or that they were able to locate for us when we were looking for something specific.
They are always first on our list when it comes to searching for new pieces and we would thoroughly recommend them for their honesty, passion and beautiful furniture.
