Repton & Co brings together a collection of both antique and newly made items that will enhance and define the spaces we live, work and play in.

With no particularly strict genre or style, we buy and sell what we like and what we would like to live with.

The simple things appeal the most; good colour, strong form, weathering, patina and age. There is a deep attraction to the elegance and beauty that comes from decay.  Whatever it is called, it is that indefinable thing or feeling that something is just right.
