Welcome to the Canonbury Antiques Shop by Style page. From here you access our products according to the style or look you are after - whether it be Victorian, Art Deco, or Farmhouse. Or perhaps you are looking for pieces of furniture in the style of specific makers, for example Chippendale, Hepplewhite or Sheraton? Just select what look or style you are after and it will list all those pieces. As we work with many interior designers, this feature was requested to facilitate an easy way to find exactly the look required for specific projects. Of course, many of these pieces are on display in our Canonbury Antiques Hertfordshire showroom so please let us know if you'd like to make an appointment or have any questions. If there is something you are after and can’t find, let us know and we can use our wealth of contacts to source it for you.
