HAIRSINES - the family business of Kevin and Jen Hairsine - is a showcase of decorative antique pieces and primitive folk art.

Kevin sources their stock from a blend of private collectors, off-the-beaten-track European street brocantes, secluded vide greniers and widely attended international trade fairs. Today, the Hairsines are as driven as ever by the exquisite aesthetics and ageless beauty of time-worn materials.

Visit them in person - by appointment - at their studio-warehouse in Ste Neots, just off the A1 at the Black Cat roundabout.
