palm beach antique row

antique row, the art and design district of west palm beach consist of over 50 antique shops, vintage store and art galleries. shops with a vast selection of pieces from the 17th to 20th century line the charming street. chairs and planters overflow onto the sidewalk as shop keeps stroll in and out to greet clients and mingle with each other. monday was the perfect day to explore antique row.
my taste tends to gravitate to danish mid-century design. i found objects in the loft of particular interest. wade and his staff were friendly and knowledgeable. the lower level is open and show cases a mix of styles from mid-century modern, mission and rattan. dont you love the chair below?
upstairs, the preparations for the palm beach modern auctions were in full swing.

a few of my other favorite stops along the way...

coco house is delightfully charming with a mix of english bamboo furnishings and modern designs.
cashmere buffalo had by far the most interesting mix. lighting, furniture, vintage jewelry, buttons, holloware, rugs and vinatge linens filled the space. the carefully edited pieces are displayed in a whimsical way.
can you see the jars of button on the table? they will soon adorn laroque skirts, dresses and shorts.

the row has been acclaimed by media and "a list" designers as the countries best mix of antiques. its a good thing that only the small treasures found fit in the over head compartment on the plane... surely it would be hard to say no to many of these pieces had i only known a way to get them back to columbia.
