The Excitement of Collecting!

April 27th, 2009 | posted by Phillip Youngberg

I was visiting a client at his home last week and in our conversation he mentioned that his friends have such different tastes from him in their home furnishings which  almost quested his judgment.  My client has excellent taste and buys great pieces that he likes while his friends got caught up in designer trends and the interiors of their houses all look the same. 

It is a great feeling to come home and enjoy great pieces.  The passion of finding the right special piece for your home is fun and very rewarding since you enjoy them everyday.  Whether it is a painting, epergne for you dining room or a beautiful piece of furniture, the pieces tell a lot about your lifestyle and tastes.

I encourage you to get passionate about collecting, and come to our store or one of our shows and let me show you some very exciting and rare pieces. Or send me an email and let me know what you are looking for.  This week I will be at the International Antique Fair in Chicago and if you would like to attend please call our office at 800-544-9440 and we can place your complimentary tickets at will call.  I am looking forward to hearing from you.

All the Best,
