As an interior designer and antique dealer, I enjoy the discovery and the hunt for beauty and style in rare tableware, home decor and objets d’art that deliver a classic, refined elegance from the past. My eclectic design taste is revealed in my collections and I only purchase things I truly love. I update my store regularly so check back often.
