I’m currently working on a embellishing story for the may 2011 problem of home & house that needs unique antique furniture pieces. When it concerns this type of task, numerous of us right here at the magazine jump at the possibility to go to 507 Antiques in Toronto.
For those who online in the GTA as well as have never been before, it’s something you should experience. picture the contents of numerous 18th as well as 19th century European estates unloaded into one 35,000-square-foot showroom. There are situation products piled high to the ceiling, portraits of nobles, unlimited chairs of all shapes as well as sizes, numerous chandeliers, as well as upholstered pieces that look much better than the day they were made. It’s much more than just a buying experience; you feel as if you’re really digging with treasure!
Now, I ought to caution you: 507 is a extremely high-end antique dealer, so don’t expect to discover a bargain. But, if you’re thinking about something extremely unusual as well as unique, this is where you will discover it.
507 is available to the public, however by visit only.
With its abundance of amazing antiques, the 507 showroom is not organized like a common store. instead of aisles, consumers weave in amongst the gorgeous things.
This settee as well as little chair are beautiful as is with their natural muslin, or outstanding candidates for reupholstering. I’d choose to keep them precisely the method they are!
The original material on this bench couldn’t be much more stylish as well as current!
