Carefully hand-picked by Lily owners, Steve and Louise Pike, on regular and dedicated buying trips to the Continent, each piece was chosen for its unique, visually appealing and versatile aesthetic with weathered textures, tones and glazes in the best traditions of enduring design made by skilled craftspeople using natural materials and sustainable processes.
Lily’s indivdual, rustic and durable pieces are perfect for starting or adding to a collection for visual displays or choosing a one-off standout statement piece to enhance an interior or exterior setting of a traditional or contemporary space within a rural or urban environment. Prices from £30 to around £3,000.
“I’m so excited about welcoming customers to our new store”, says Lily Antiques founder, Louise Pike. “We’ve just re-located from Tetbury where we opened our first store three years ago, but we couldn’t resist moving to this beautiful new showroom in the recently redeveloped site at the Old Kennels on the edge of Cirencester Park. It’s the perfect location to showcase our latest finds from recent travels.”
The interiors of Lily Antiques’ 133m2 floor space is the perfect place to showcase its unique collections of imperfect textures, natural colours and tactile finishes.
This perfect hidden gem welcomes homemakers, interior designers, landscape architects and garden designers and will be hosting regular events and exclusive previews for trade and retail customers over the summer months.
Steve and Louise Pike opened the first Lily Antiques store in Tetbury three years ago and stocked it with some of the items from their own personal collection they’d picked up on their travels around the Mediterranean over many years.
They have since grown to become a well-established, local business offering guidance and expertise to a wide range of clients in the Cotswolds’ and beyond. Known for its friendly, collaborative hands-on approach, Lily Antiques is able to pack and arrange deliver of any item and offers trade accounts.
