Housed in a four storey, late Victorian building in the heritage conservation area of old Stockport, Agapanthus Interiors is hard to miss. That this is not just a normal residential house is given away as the antiques spill onto the sidewalk outside the store. This well-tended display is definitely enough to lure in anyone with an interest in antiques, or those who simply like to shop for anything gorgeous, unique, and retro.
Agapanthus Interiors is an interior design and antique restoration shop specialising in unique and eclectic antique lighting fixtures of all shapes and sizes, furniture and decorative items carefully sourced from around the UK and Europe. And any collector of such items must become acquainted with this site.
But this is not just a store for antiques. Agapanthus Interiors is responsible for many interior design projects, from large manor houses to bespoke restaurants. Their portfolio is detailed on their website, and each project looks like a showroom of antique furnishings and decorations. Additionally, the staff offers a highly professional restoration service, specializing in antique lighting including lamps, wall lights, pendants, and chandeliers. Their service includes for instance cleaning, fixing, and rewiring to British safety standards. And all pieces are completed to an exceptionally high standard. Agapanthus Interiors also supply many spares such as braided wire, crystal drops and glass shades.
The owners of Agapanthus Interiors are keen to share their passion for antiques with the wider community. One way they accomplish this is through a prop-hire service. As well as offering out stunning pieces for rent, they also consult on the best pieces for particular requirements and share their knowledge of antiques from different periods with anyone who is interested. They also offer workshops to the local community, which can center around restoration skills such as furniture painting, or a more seasonal crafty skill such as wreath-making at Christmas!
Agapanthus Interiors are open every day of the week. Collectors will soon realize it is worth becoming regular visitors here, as the owners take great care to maintain an ever-changing collection and continually offer new items to their patrons.
