After living in Bavaria for several years, Andrew Legere returned to the UK in the early 90’s bringing the influences of the Baroque and Rococo periods so evident in southern Germany and the nearby Austrian Tirol. In the beginning, sourcing directly to the antiques trade, the logical progression was to open retail premises.
The lantiques shop opened its doors for the first time in the spring of 2004, in the market town of Petworth, West Sussex, antiques capital of southern England. Looking further afield within mainland Europe, a house purchase in France provided the opportunity to establish a base camp for exploring the vast resource of French antiques and decorative furniture.
Located in Chichester, West Sussex, lantiques is renowned for its wide selection of French farmhouse tables for everyday living, harmonizing texture with style for period and contemporary settings.

Swedish and Gustavian Furniture
Gustavian furniture, named after King Gustav III of Sweden, was popular in the late 18th century and is characterized by its neoclassical style. It features elegant, symmetrical designs with straight lines and delicate details such as tapered legs and fluted columns. Gustavian furniture often features light-colored paint, gilding, and decorative accents such as rosettes and swags.
