Ideals are always changing, but there comes a point when it advances so far that it goes full circle – resulting in us revisiting and repeating past themes. Shabby chic is a great example of a trend that has stood the test of time, with high-quality furniture manufacturer Classics Direct proving testament to this fact.

With the recent recession forcing people to watch what they spend, many have gone back to basics - such as growing their own vegetables, creating their own clothes and more recently, designing their own furniture. But what style works well that is both economical and fashion-savvy?

Richard Baker of Classics Direct has the solution: “Shabby chic was born out of two styles – mixing English Country house with a vintage French appeal. As UK-based specialists of quality French furniture, we’re equipped with the appropriate knowledge to help inform customers about what materials, décor and finishes would be best suited to their homes.”

Established back in 2005, Classics Direct French furniture UK has experienced huge success to become a household name both in its hometown of Sugnall, Staffordshire, as well as across the country. Operating in a number of sectors including boutique accommodation as well as TV production, Classics Direct has built up a credible list of high-profile clients – as well as continually adding new ranges of furniture to its ever-expanding portfolio.

“In a world where several businesses have folded due to the economic downturn, we’ve been extremely fortunate that our services have always been in great demand,” explained Baker.

“One style that will never become outdated is vintage. Think of all the great classics: be it a film, a song or even a type of architecture. Despite the retro theme being an old style, essentially it will never grow old.”

The Baker family is keen to apply this principle across all its furnishings, from French Rococo dressing tables to white painted furniture. However, it is the personal touch that makes Classics Direct stand out from other furniture companies. Understanding the importance of practising a consistent style whether in a single room or throughout the entire house, Classics Direct also offers bedroom packages – including items such as nightstands as well as a bedframe.
