I want to introduce a new sponsor to Cote de Texas readers – The Highboy Antiques Simplified
The Highboy is an online antique and fine art shop – an internet marketplace where curated antique and art dealers sell their wares. The Highboy is the brainchild of Douglas and Olga Granda-Scott who comes from a family of well known and highly respected antique dealers. Having been brought up in the business, Olga now lends her young and fresh eye when choosing dealers for The Highboy.
The – “Antiques Simplified” says it all. It’s highly user-friendly – you can search for what you are looking for, using tight specifics or more general terms. In addition – The Highboy gathers items in design groups - such as mirrors or lighting – for quick searches.
Their weekly emails are also helpful – arrays of items are shown – put together in such a way to create an entire room’s décor like this mid century dining room:
They group newly arrived items together – for easy perusal:
And I love this the best – they have designers choose their favorite items on The Highboy – such as Kerry Howard here:
This was particularly fun – shopping The Highboy to recreate Brooke Shields fabulous NYC apartment decorated by India Hick’s partner:
And, there is their blog – The Weekly – with fabulous stories about antiques and décor.
If you are a designer – be sure to join The Highboy’s Designers Club for trade prices and early access to sales HERE. In addition – there is the Concierge Service that will help you find specific items for specific jobs – before they are even offered on web site.
