Altfield are a family run company that has been designing, making and distributing fine furnishings and decorative accessories since 1982. Initially established under the name De Leche Et Cie by Amanda and Jeremy & Nette Lack, Amanda’s brother and sister in law , they specialised in needle point cushions, distributing out of a small warehouse space in Westbury in Wiltshire.
Following the success of the needle point cushions, in particular the signature ‘redoute’ flower collection, over the next few years, we expanded into porcelain, lighting, Japanese Screens, Chinoiserie wallpaper panels, hand carved water gilded mirrors and then Antique Chinese Furniture, where we have become a leading dealer, specialising in 18th & 19th Century Ming style furniture from China’s regions.
Altfield have an unrivaled network of contacts in China as one would expect after nearly 30 years of business in the field. All our furniture is refinished and restored by our European trained craftsmen. Our range of lighting, artwork and decorative accessories are handmade from the finest materials.
William Lack, Amanda’s brother, officially joined the company in 1992, Growing up in Hong Kong left William with a huge love of Chinese and China Trade decorative arts and the possibilities of combining them with the modern design aesthetic. William had previously worked for bank in London. He had been sent by the bank on 3 week Outward Bound training course in January when in the middle of a blizzard on a fell in the Lake District came the life changing decision to change careers.
Since then they have continued to develop and adapt to changes in the tastes and styles in the interior design world but always remaining true to the commitment to offer the very best available in all that they do.
