Out "hunting" again for my home. My travels brought me to Encores Antiques. They have two locations in Acton and Littleton, Massachusetts. One of my favs to visit now and then to see what has come in from Europe. They originally only specialized in Scandinavian furniture. They have now expanded to carrying furniture from Switzerland, Austria, and many of their inventory from Ireland and England. Their furniture is so unique and could add that special touch or charm to a modern home. Everything they carry is livable and is not delicate museum quality. Their antiques could definitely handle everyday living of a busy family. As you will see in some of these photo's I took, they carry a Gustavian line with its pale wash of paint that could compliment any interior. This line is very popular...of course...it is so very pretty! It is a bit of a drive for me, but I really enjoy shopping here. I have my eye on a couple of things...
There are many dressers. Some are very large and so different from anything you see at the stores. For the price, I feel you get better craftsmanship than what you would with the newer pieces.
I love their clocks, but have no place to put one.
A very large selection of antique mirrors that you won't see anywhere else! I fell in love with this antique French mirror below. I can see building a whole design for my hall bathroom downstairs around this mirror. Oo-La-La!
This must be a panel that was taken from a home. This would be wonderful on a very large wall.
Add a pop of color...Lovely ornament for your garden...I want it!
Cute faux bamboo painted chest.
For a large home.
Isn't this pretty?
Chuck full of Gustavian style furniture! Love it!
These chairs are darling!
I have been keeping my eye on this painting for a long time. It is very old. The Arch Angel. I really need furniture though!
I hope you can visit this antique store. Really worth it! Still "hunting" and will post more results!
