2000 Best Furniture, Antique

Autrefois Antiques

Specializing in 18th- and 19th-century Italian and French furniture (with the odd 20th-century accessory thrown in), Autrefois has a warehouse ambience but a treasure trove of beautiful pieces. Bonus: Original light fixtures from the same eras are on sale, plus other unexpected objets d’art. The prices are fair, particularly given the hard-to-find merchandise.
