A World of Old is run by Tom Parker and Liesa, his daughter – Tom has been selling pine for some 20 plus years, he is also a professional restorer. The business is based just outside the village of Wing, (Bedfordshire) on the A418 between Leighton Buzzard and Aylesbury.
Inside is a vast choice of finished pieces and you will clearly see how our recycling works. Half the furniture is original and often unique, sourced mainly in England but the occasional French marble washstand or Dutch dresser can be seen! All have been carefully restored then waxed, oiled or for the latest look, painted and distressed using Farrow & Ball traditional colours.
Despite such choice there can still be a problem with sizes! This is when our custom-made (bespoke furniture) service takes over. Simply request a quote and we can make any piece of furniture to your measurements using all reclaimed timber! The showroom also has a display of our hand-built reclaimed furniture.
We now offer a spray-painting service for updating your own furniture. This can be a Farrow & Ball colour or another make which we can have made-up to order. Please pop in to discuss or email your details with a picture for a quote to firstname.lastname@example.org.
A World of Old delivers good old fashioned personal service from the initial enquiry right through to delivery by us and placing your purchase in its new home. Our prices are extremely competitive, especially for a product that is hand made and of all solid wood.
The old piece you buy is the ultimate in recycling and will last for many more years. We invite you to visit us, have a chat, reduce your carbon footprint and buy ‘green’!
