Welcome to our blog: the latest feature of our gallery’s online presence.

This blog is run by Mackinnon Fine Furniture. Mackinnon Fine Furniture has quickly become one of the leading antique dealers in St. James’s London. The gallery is bringing eighteenth century antique furniture back into the forefront of contemporary taste with an eye for quality, style, and design. We are consistently demonstrating the inherent value and longevity of exceptional antique furniture, and we hope this blog will provide a more in-depth view of our collection, our archives, and our work beyond the gallery.
