Briggs House Antiques began in 1985, as the owner shopped in England for period oak furniture to furnish a Tudor-style house in New York.
And liked what she found.
to today – a large shop offering a wide range of English,
French, Irish and Continental furniture, art and accessories,
often with a whimsical twist. The quality is undisputed,
the decorative appeal obvious.
Shopping trips overseas every three months keep a constant supply of new stock available; often suppliers call with a particularly great find –
when we learn a new welsh oak dresser (“hutch” in US terminology) has surfaced, we view it via email and if it’s “right” – it’s ours!
A custom-made line of reproductions – cherry and oak extending dining tables, chairs, leather-topped mahogany writing and computer desks – provides the
right size, color and “look”.
