Now in the second generation, Loveday antiques is run by Alexander Loveday. The name Loveday has been synonymous throughout the Antiques Trade, Interior Designers and the general public for over 40 years. Alexander Loveday's passion for antiques was founded from an early age, his father David Loveday was one of the first Antique Dealers in the Antiques quarters of Islington, London. From achieving success and a good reputation within the industry, he founded a second showroom in the Kings Road Chelsea. This led Alexander, working alongside his father, to start his own business at the age of 20 and to bring his own personal style and attention to quality into the collection we have today. The stock represents an interesting and stylish mix of not only Antique furniture but Art Deco and contemporary 1970's furniture from around the world infused with some exquisite pieces of British Modern Artwork which gives the showroom a distinct and very unique feel.
Loveday Antiques has 36 antiques for sale.
