We Crushed 2019

Thank you!

2019 has been a wildly amazing year and we have all of you to thank for it! We have grown by leaps and bounds and have accomplished every single goal we set out to create this year. It has been truly wonderful and we feel so lucky to have all your support on this journey. Here are some highlights from 2019!

The Chaise Lounge Podcast

I was so thrilled and honored to be interviewed on the top interior design podcast, The Chaise Lounge! This fall Nick May has had a series of fantastic guest hosts including Toma Clark Haines who invited me on one of her episodes to talk about my background, my journey to antiques, and how I run my business. Listen to hear how I'm preparing to ride the economy.

Buying Trip

Back in May we went over to the UK for one of our whirlwind buying trips. We met up with close industry friends Randy and Bernie of Antiques of Dallas and Lori & Leslie of Fickle International for a little fun in London before we set out to buy on an Antiques Diva tour lead by Gail McLeod. We attended some new fairs as well as some of our longterm favorite dealers and were able to locate some special requests for clients! We love when we find the perfect piece that a client has requested.

High Point

In October Kelly and I packed up a 23' truck and hightailed it down to High Point, NC to show at the High Point Antique and Design Centerduring the Fall furniture market. We showed with some amazing dealers, made some new friends and hung out with long time friends. We enjoyed meeting wonderful new clients and building relationships with designers who work with us as a go to resource. It was a blast!

The Gallery at 200 Lex Powered by Incollect

Wowzers! This was MAJOR! Kelly and I had long wanted to be a part of the New York Design Center but figured it was a dream we would accomplish in a few years time. We busted our buns building the right kind of inventory, the kind of inventory you all love, and fortunately for us we were invited to join starting December 2, 2019! At The Gallery at 200 Lex we now have a convenient place for you to meet your clients in the city to see some of the best of the best of our inventory. Our inventory will rotate often there so please stop in to see what's new!

The Business of Antiques

Toma Clark Haines, The Antiques Diva, launched the Antiques Dealer training program this year. I was thrilled when Toma invited me to be a co-Director of the program with her. Since we launched we had a two day workshop in New York, had multiple amazing clients join the program and graduate, and Toma has even launched a podcast!

Available on New Marketplaces

In 2019 we had a major goal of leveraging Ronati to get on multiple antique marketplaces online. We were thrilled to announce our expansion on ChairshIncollect, and 1stdibs. You can also find us on DECASO and modernantiquarianshop.com or on instagram. Wherever you are looking for antiques, we will be there. Follow our pages as we add inventory regularly.
We wish you all a very happy holiday season and thank you again for all your support, encouragement, and words of wisdom!
