Our History
vintage furniture and interiors

EDWARD OLIVER is located in an interesting side street in the charming abbey town of Sherborne,Dorset .The shop is set in an 18th century former stables and has an abundance of rustic character which complements the stock, helping to create the relaxed, stylish look that Edward has set out to achieve.

Edward Oliver opened in January 2004 and has become well established with a reputation for selling interesting yet functional pieces of furniture as well as choice decorative objects. You won't find any shiny,brown pieces of furniture, instead an eclectic mixture of 19th and 20th century vintage,

painted and modern items fill the showrooms. Each piece has been carefully restored where needed and as a result has been given a new lease of life for a few more generations.

After studying contemporary furniture design at the Buckinghamshire Chilterns University College in High Wycombe Edward began designing and making bespoke pieces of furniture from commissions. This lead to an appreciation of the design and structure of period furniture and lighting and an interest in sourcing damaged or incomplete items and bringing them back to life.

Edward tries to keep an interesting and varied range of stock, however please don't hesitate to contact him if you are having trouble locating a certain style or piece of furniture as he regularly sources items for customers.
