The founder of Guinevere, French born Genevieve Weaver, trained as a hat designer in Paris in the 1950s. Having moved to London and started a family, she became drawn to the world of antiques. She opened Guinevere Antiques in 1963, in what was then, the disreputable end of the famous King’s Road Chelsea.
Her philosophy was one of mixing different styles and eras of furniture together – Ancient and Modern, East and West. Kevin, Marc and Heather have taken up these forward-thinking ideas and run with it. Their flair for combining styles of furniture and objects is still revolutionary in the antiques trade.
Guinevere Antiques now consists of four adjoining shops on the King’s Road, and has an international and loyal following of private collectors and the worlds best interior designers. The Guinevere staff are approachable and friendly, known for their expertise and taste, but most of all, their attention to detail and customer service.
