London South West, UK - Antiques By Design, run by Guy Trench, is all about reclaim and reuse. They have gained the reputation of being one of the more innovative reuse upcyclers of antiques, reclaimed items and old materials, to create both beautiful and unique interior or exterior pieces. Their reuse ideas are always original and if you think you may have seen it before somewhere; Guy more than likely thought of it first.

They offer a bespoke service especially for interior designers and the service industries such as hotels, restaurants and bars. Widespread sourcing enables them to meet personal requests and designs. Commission work is gladly taken on and they particularly enjoy working with the client's ideas to create original and distinctive pieces.

Guy Trench reported a good first day at Battersea Decorative with upcycled lighting and mirrors going out.

And their beautiful Edwardian pond yacht going across the pond to the Americans.

The images of their stand at Battersea show just a sample their innovative designs. We recommend you do not miss this opportunity to see them in person. Antiques By Design will be at Battersea Decorative until Sunday.

Antiques By Design is a Salvo Code member. Look out for the Crane logo to show a salvage dealer following the Salvo Code.

Other regular exhibitors to look out for include 3details, Gary Wallis, Nikki Page Antiques, Street Marburg & Charlotte Casadejus and The Antique French Chair Co.
