Having just joined my niece in celebrating her 50th birthday at the beginning of this week I am even more aware of just how great an achievement it is for a company to reach such a milestone.  In this case it is the very well-known family antiques firm of Butchoff Antiques who deal from Kensington Church Street, one of London’s finest and most varied hubs for the decorative and fine arts.

The firm’s owner, Ian Butchoff, who incidentally was one of the founding members of LAPADA, says: “We are very excited to exhibit at Palm Beach for our 50th. Through being there in person we aim to offer our US based clients a more attentive service and hope our selection of French and English furniture find new homes”.  As well as LAPADA they are also members of British Antique Dealers Association (BADA), Kensington Church Street Dealer Association (KCSADA) and CINOA and so one can buy in total confidence.

They sell, as their website shows, a wide range of 18th and 19th century English and Continental antiques, including exhibition-quality furniture, lighting, sculpture objects and paintings.  They offer interior design advice and help clients build up collections and also find special pieces for them too.
