How would you describe your style?

"The period of interest ranges from the mid 17th century to the late 18th century with a focus on period porcelain, particularly Japanese Imari and Arita made for the European export market in the late 17th and early 18th century. There is also a strong emphasis on lighting, using source materials from this period, to repurpose for modern use in classic interiors. Another focal point is early Georgian and European antiques and decorative art."

"Over the years Raymond has worked on many London properties, country houses as well as projects in Belgium, Holland, Sweden and Italy. In each instance, Raymond aims to re-decorate in the appropriate style as well as combine antiques within a more modern setting. Horneman Antiques also offers a range of more tailored services like sofa making, lampshade making, curtain making, bespoke wallpaper and upholstery. In our Kensington Church Street gallery, you will find a selection of beautiful 17th and 18th century items as this is the period we specialise in. Over the years Raymond has exhibited at Olympia Art as well as the LAPADA fair in London. Notable sales include those made to the British Museum and the Ashmolean Museum in Oxford as well as major private collections.
