Pair of Console Tables, £2,800

A console table is one of the most useful pieces you can buy, and this pair will make a smart investment. Inlaid and ebonised, we love the contrast of the white marble against the dark wood. The neat legs and curved edges are so elegant.

Louis XV-style Sofa, £750

Another piece ready to be reupholstered, this open-armed sofa has what’s called a serpentine front. The extensively carved frame still has its original paint, and the seating has been re-webbed to make it more comfortable.

Bobbin Table, £695

The colour of this unusual 19th-century occasional table is stunning – but the condition is ultimately what makes it a good buy. The feet are a later addition, but still tie in with the overall design. Despite its age, we reckon it would work well with all property styles.
