Antiques in Style is a source of joy for me to create, and hopefully will be a source of inspiration for you! The variety, artistry and history of the antiques and vintage pieces that surround us every day provide pleasure, beauty and sometimes even intrigue. The classics never go out of style, and each era, country, and even artisan's interpretations create an environment that is always full of surprises. It is truly a pleasure to bring such timeless style together for every client and follower of my blog. And of course, your input is always welcome!

An antique desk, or as the French call it bureau plat, is a highly desirable antique, being relatively rare. In fact, I am often asked by our clients the reason for this scarcity.
Antique bookcases, or as the French call them ~ bibliotheques ~ were not created until the invention of the printing press during the 15th century. Even so, books remained relatively expensive and were highly prized, appreciated, treasured and collected. The antique bookcase was ultimately created to provide a showcase repository for such literary treasures, prized leather-bound volumes filled with engravings and the magic of the written word.
