Messrs. Nicholas Wilson and Ashley Coleman, the constituent parts of Wilson & Coleman, are dedicated - addicted - to finding wonderful vintage and contemporary interior design objects and works of decorative art from around the world. We shun the ease of buying from dull and predictable wholesalers and "antiques warehouses", and everything we acquire has been individually sourced, often in very limited runs. This means that although we present mostly 20th and 21st Century European objects of vertu we never know exactly what we'll next discover on our travels. We do know, however, that it will never be boring. Selecting items individually also means that there will always be a consistent level of taste, quality and coherence that runs throughout our collections. We would never present anything that we would not absolutely love to own ourselves.
