Victorian Furniture is one of the most popular styles of furniture we carry, and as an interior style, Victorian decor has seen a huge resurgence in the last few years among designers weary of bland minimalism and stick-legged mid-century furniture.

I love to show Greg pictures of classic elegant homes staged with antiques and fine furniture (the best ones are from our own clients), and point out the intricacy of antiques in our beloved reference books. Greg loves to show me what he brings home, and our old box truck becomes a source of magic, filled with stunning pieces of furniture, mirrors, china, rugs and sometimes original paintings.
