It is always interesting to see what dealers and shop keepers bring home. Sometimes it's things that don't sell, and sometimes it's things that emotionally resonate to the point that profit is no longer viable.
In the past twenty years or so, the antique market has changed with the inclusion of mid (20th) century wares. It has infused spaces using furnishings from the 16th, 17th, 18th, and/or 19th century with a certain "new" energy. Dealer's Choice has so many great examples of how to successfully put a room together using elements of all centuries.
I have book marked many pages, and from time to time I'll post one for you. Today it is the dining room of Richard Shapiro, a dealer from Los Angeles.
