‘We are a local architectural practice and I came across Gonnermann quite recently after we moved office. We were looking to source the ‘right furniture’ for the look that we wanted to create in our lounge area. The quality and the design of furniture is very important to us and we looked at a lot of antique furniture shops.  Julian Gonnermann was a breath of fresh air, he has the right mix of being very knowledgeable and very helpful, without leaving you feeling rushed.

We bought beautiful mid century rosewood and leather chairs from Gonnermann and are absolutely delighted with them.  As they were quite old, the cushions need to be refilled as they didn’t meet current fire regulations, and Julian organised this for us, the full process was so simple and quick, and if possible, the chairs looked even better after being refilled.

I would not hesitate to either recommend Gonnermann and to buy from them again.’

‘Gonnermann is a treasure trove of amazingly beautiful retro furniture. We’ve bought several pieces from Julian – all of which have been of an outstanding quality.

.. your shop was an oasis- we couldn’t believe how lovely your furniture was. We’d spent ages looking for quality/stylish retro furniture and your shop was jaw-dropping. I liked the fact that all the wood had a lovely rich patina and the furniture was restored rather than knocked about. You also re-cover chairs which was great for us. We hate buying new furniture, it’s so boring. It’s nice to think that old furniture is re-used. … The chairs we’ve bought are really comfortable too!’

‘One rainy afternoon we took shelter in Gonnermann and we discovered a gem. Julian is an expert in what he does and an absolute pleasure to deal with. His knowledge of furniture designers and history is fabulous. The personalised service he provides is very special, we spent some time with him learning about and choosing a beautiful table and chairs that are perfect for our home. Julian and his business truly exceeded expectations.
We can’t wait to go back to choose our next piece…I think we’re going to need a bigger house.

I’ve bought from Gonnerman’s for the last eight years. Going to the shop and talking with Julian is both a delight and an education as he really knows his stuff. He’s also incredibly helpful about deliveries and because he has an excellent  sense of what works and doesn’t work in your home he never tries to sell you something that isn’t right
