about us

Seymour Antiques offers a multi-dimensional approach to both collecting and design. Focusing on the interior and idea of home, we've worked to create a shop comprised of items chosen for their form, usability, and beauty. Combining the diverse inventories of select antique dealers and our curated house displays, we like to think of the shop as a full-scale lookbook, where rooms full of beautiful things uplift and inspire. One of our favorite quotes, 'things are beautiful if you love them,' summarizes our philosophy.

Quote: Things are beautiful if you love them, Jean Anouilh (1910-1987)

Seymour Antiques was started by two architects. The shop opened in 1994 on the site of a former local furniture store that had been boarded up and vacant, and threatened with demolition. The architects slowly restored the buildings in phases, expanding the shop as renovations progressed. Now comprising three floors and over 20,000 sq.ft., the shop has become a resource for design professionals, theatre and film prop houses, and residential clients with a focus on utility and design. The architects are still here, with offices on the third floor of the very building threatened with demolition, and the shop is now run by their daughter, who is also a designer.
