For as long as I can remember, I have always been attracted by the aesthetics of arts and ancients objects, but also by their history. Every winter on the road to Florida, my grandparents and I would make stops in Charleston, North Carolina and Savannah, Georgia. Colonial architecture and interiors made me dream. Already at that time, I Iiked to imagine what my house would look like one day. Imagining myself sitting in a padded armchair, reading a Jane Austen book and drinking a glass of wine in a (Christofle cup) stopping my gaze for a moment in this cozy corner of the living room where a Chippendale chair and a Aubusson tapestry rub shoulders.
Despite my infinite and borderless tastes for antiques, it was in Britain of the XVIII, XIX and XX centuries that I set my sights. Because England influenced the stylistic and cultural movements of many eras.
Living the english way!
It was in the XIX and XX centuries that the craze for the English style manifested itself in a spectacular way. The Victorian and Edwardian eras, among others, were those of a prosperous and expending empire. Let us remember that a quarters of the world population will be the subject of is Majesty.
For the past twenty years, I have bought, collected and sold antiques and rare items. Now I offer my know how in the world of furniture, antiques and vintage objects. I also rely on a strong team of experienced antique dealers and second-hand dealers across Quebec for the expertise and evaluation of antiques.
