Lancashire fans of boy band One Direction may be interested to know that Harry Styles is just an old fashioned lad at heart, having been snapped loading an antique chest and various other fine furniture items he’d just bought into a van.
Harry Styles is one of five singers making up the British-Irish band One Direction, who achieved fame when they placed third in the seventh series of X-Factor. Even though Styles only turned 18 in February, it seems he already has a keen eye for a bargain when it comes to fine furniture. “Antiques are Green” founder Nigel Worboys caught sight of him in Kempton Park, Surrey, where Harry happily posed for photographs, keen to prove that it isn’t only the older generation who see the value and environmental sense of buying antiques. The items he purchased included antique buckets, upholstered Victorian armchairs and a sizeable antique chest. For Ribble Valley residents wondering how he got everything back to the home he shares with fellow band member Louis Tomlinson, the answer was simple – he used a big van, as any true antique collector would.
Many young people are extremely conscious about environmental issues, such as the impact modern production methods have on the world around them. So it is reassuring that Simon Cowell’s young protégée has chosen to endorse the “antiques are green” message. Of course, antique chests aren’t just environmentally friendly; they’re attractive to look at and a good investment too. Young people in Preston can find antique oak partners desks , Victorian dining chairs and much more besides by visiting a good antique dealer.
