Jack Harness started trading in 1991, in Marlow, Buckinghamshire, as Jack Harness Antiques, supplying antique and decorative country furniture to all overseas markets. With an extensive stock of antique country pine, original painted furniture and decorative accessories, Jack soon became very well known for supplying interior designers and American trader buyers with a huge array of decorative furniture.
In 2003 Jack moved the business to Leamington Spa, Warwickshire and began trading from the buildings on his own farm. The vast stocks of fully restored antique British, French and Swedish country furniture are housed within a 10,000 square feet purpose built showroom.
Jack specialises in; original Georgian pine furniture, antique oak furniture, French provincial antique furniture and original painted Swedish Gustavian furniture.
Old scrubbed pine tables from Dorset farm houses, painted dresser bases from ancient manor houses combine with butcher’s blocks to form unique unfitted kitchens.
Period oak chest of drawers from the Welsh valleys sit alongside subtly painted antique buffets from Sweden. Beautifully polished French cherry wood farm tables mix with early pieces of antique pine furniture from the west of England. Original painted commodes and antique oak dresser bases mingle with painted bookcases, mirrors and antique dressers from all over Europe.
Every piece of antique furniture in our vast stock has been hand picked by Jack on his regular buying trips around the UK and the Continent. All the wonderful items in our showrooms have been fully restored in our own onsite workshops by very experienced and talented craftsmen.
