English and Continental Antiques is a long established family business situated in the centre of the pretty North Suffolk market town of Eye, which is blessed with historic buildings, cafes and art galleries.
The showrooms are located opposite the Town Hall with parking right outside and we are currently open by appointment so please call before making a journey.
The business specialises in antique furniture, art and porcelain, in fact everything for the interior or exterior. There are also a range of ancillary services on offer, which include restoration, re-upholstery, interior design and furniture logistics.
Owner Steven Harmer has a love of early period oak furniture but deals across the board including Georgian mahogany and walnut, even modern designer pieces, quality being the only pre-requisite.
To complement the fine antique furniture you can find accessories to finish off the decor.
There is a full delivery service available, either across the UK or even worldwide and we invite customers to view stock on-line or better still pop into the showrooms where a friendly efficient service awaits.
