About Us



Antique Tables and Country Furniture evolved from the highly reputable

G Kilford and Co antique furniture restoration business, founded in the 1980s, which remains as busy as ever restoring cherished pieces to British Antique Dealers’ Association (BADA) standards of workmanship.

We specialise in sourcing, restoring and supplying antique French farmhouse tables, but we also stock a complementary range of antique dining and side tables, dressers and sideboards, together with a wide variety of dining chairs to suit.

Today, the two entities sit side-by-side at our extensive, parking friendly premises at Wisborough Green, between Billingshurst and Petworth in West Sussex.

Every piece of furniture we source is unique and totally antique. Often these tables have a fascinating back history. Antique French farmhouse tables, typically dating back to the first half of the 19th century, would have played an integral part in French family life at the time. Many of those that we come across, however, have been sadly neglected, left behind in an abandoned property or just stored away. Until now!

We use the resources of a talented team of antique experts, covering the continent of Europe and beyond to source these long lost treasures. With loving care and great attention to detail, our passion is bringing these proud, characterful tables back to authentic life, before finding them a new home – a place where they can offer focus and practicality. In a private residence, a hotel, a restaurant, an independent school even - where catering and entertainment is a priority.

More Information

Every piece of furniture we source is unique and totally antique. Often these tables have a fascinating back history. Antique French farmhouse tables, typically dating back to the first half of the 19th century, would have played an integral part in French family life at the time. Many of those that we come across, however, have been sadly neglected, left behind in an abandoned property or just stored away. Until now!

We use the resources of a talented team of antique experts, covering the continent of Europe and beyond to source these long lost treasures. With loving care and great attention to detail, our passion is bringing these proud, characterful tables back to authentic life, before finding them a new home – a place where they can offer focus and practicality. In a private residence, a hotel, a restaurant, an independent school even - where catering and entertainment is a priority.

The fascination is in knowing every piece we source is a complete one off, a product of 19th century individual detailing and craftsmanship. Created in styles, shapes and sizes ranging from the conventional to the quirky – featuring an array of wood finishes - oak, cherry, elm, ash, chestnut and all fruitwoods.

Sometimes we find farmhouse tables which are in remarkably good condition, needing little more than a little light reviving for the original finish. Others may be in a rather sorry state, requiring careful and detailed restoration, but always taking care to preserve the original patination which has evolved over time.

Today, our national and international clients - homeowners, interior designers, restaurateurs, hoteliers, collectors and more besides - travel far and wide to visit our spacious showrooms or liaise with us from distance. We make life easy for all our customers, delivering to your door - across the UK, throughout Europe and across the United States, typically using our proven antique shipping service. From the Cotswolds to California, from the Home Counties to the hinterlands of Italy and beyond - our furniture embellishes a myriad of locations.

We have a loyal and knowledgeable staff who take huge pride in their work. From our discerning suppliers to our highly skilled team of restorers and sales advisors, they are all dedicated to the task of giving a new lease of life to each individual item, ahead of delivery to your property.
