'Conjure the room that never existed'
Doe & Hope specialise in decorative, rare & unusual antiques from around the world with a particular interest in the atmosphere that surrounds an object, taking a cinematic approach in the presentation of our inventory. Our house style is probably best described as theatrical; being a concoction of old money, dramatic decorative, and faded gentility, with common themes of both humour and the macabre running through our inventory, that includes both academic and playful objects.
We are proud to be members of LAPADA, the UK's largest association of professional art and antiques dealers, and we were delighted to be included in Homes & Antiques '50 Best Antique Shops' in the UK for 2016. Over the years we have supplied many large film and television productions with key pieces including the very popular Game of Thrones. We have also had a concession in the prestigious Liberty of London department store in 2015 and won the Antiques Young Gun of the Year award for 2014... Every object tells a story and we are the storytellers...
Whilst we do much of our business online, viewings of pieces are naturally available, so if you do require a closer look don’t hesitate to contact us here at the Onion Barn. We are based in the historic medieval village of Blunham, within easy reach of the A1 and close to Bedford, Cambridge & London and also have a presence at Lorfords showrooms in Tetbury in the Cotswolds; plan your visit to either gallery here
