Petworth has a history of being a centre for antique dealing that goes back centuries and is a vibrant industry in the town to this day.
Voted the “Best Antiques Town” in 2004, known as the “Antiques Centre of the South” and set in the heart of the South Downs National Park, Petworth is a hub for an industry which has a proven low carbon footprint and where Antiques really are ’Green’. This highlights the importance of the craftsmen who designed and made these wonderful pieces which are on display in the antiques shops all within a walking distance of a half mile radius around this beautiful, vibrant and quintessentially English Market Town.
Whether you are moving, refurbishing, renovating or just looking for that much sought after special piece, from fine traditional to vintage or contemporary modern, there is a very good chance you will find it in Petworth.
All Antique Dealers in Petworth are members of The Petworth Antique And Decorative Arts association (PAADA),organization that represents the vast majority of the many antique shops, centers, dealers and interior designers in Petworth.
As Petworth changes and evolves, we have been fortunate to retain our long established quality dealers, members of the London and Provincial Antique Dealers Association (LAPADA) or the British Antique Dealers Association (BADA). At the same time we also have a number of young, cutting edge, fashion conscious dealers selling mid-century modern and bespoke designer furniture.
