Designer Predicts Antiques will be “Hot” in 2013

Recently, House Beautiful magazine compiled a list of home design trend predicitions from ten well-known interior designers that are expected to be “hot” in 2013. We were thrilled to see that antiques were mentioned among the trends!

Designer extraordinaire Bunny Williams, whose first job in the industry happened to be for an antiques dealer in New York, told House Beautiful “I hope people start looking at period furniture again – beautiful old pieces to mix with modern ones…” We couldn’t agree more! A gorgeous antique piece, such as an armoire or mirror, adds character and a bit of history to a modern room. Below are a few antique pieces you can find here at The Gables Antiques that we think would look great when mixed with furnishing of other time periods.

A pair of vintage French cherry nightstands.

A 19th century carved and gilded mirror.

An early 19th century walnut armoire.

An old French iron console with a marble top.

This is just a sampling of the wonderful antiques we have on hand here at The Gables. Visit our website or stop by our shop at 711 Miami Circle to see even more. If you don’t live in Atlanta, you can shop our inventory on 1st Dibs.

Also, don’t forget about our Warehouse Sale, which runs through December 19th! Our backroom is filled with items marked 20% to 50% off ready to find a new home.
