WE ARE THE TWO ARTHURS
Beautifully Designed Antiques for the Home.
William Morris - 'Have nothing in your home that you do not know to be useful, or believe to be beautiful.'
With over 35 years experience in 20th Century Decorative Arts and Design, The Two Arthurs specialise in finding original design-led antique lighting, metalware, furniture, ceramics and glass for the home from the Arts and Crafts, Art Nouveau and Art Deco movements.
Inspired by a collaboration between lighting pioneer William Arthur Smith Benson (WAS Benson) and master metalworker Arthur Stansfield Dixon, The Two Arthurs launched their online store in 2015, selling sustainable and beautifully designed antiques for the home in the UK and overseas.
THE FULL STORY - IT'S ALL ABOUT DESIGN
Charles Voysey - "Simplicity in decoration is one of the most essential qualities, without which, no trie richness is possible. To know where to stop and not what to do is a long way on the road to being a great decorator."
The Two Arthurs are specialists in 20th Century Decorative Arts and Design. They have been collecting, living with and selling original design-led 'beautiful and useful' antiques both face to face and online for over 35 years.
In 2008 they embarked on a journey to live the Arts and Crafts dream and to live more sustainably by decorating their house with beautifully designed antiques that could also be used in the home.
Inspired by the collaboration between lighting pioneer WAS Benson (William Arthur Smith Benson) and master metalworker Arthur Stansfield Dixon, in 2015 they started selling their collection online via www.thetwoarthurs.co.uk.
Today, items that The Two Arthurs have researched, collected and sold can be found in collections, museums and public and private houses worldwide and can be equally enjoyed in both new and period homes.
