Fresh from France, some beautiful antiques have just been unloaded at MAI! You can find these and so much more in Betsy Austin’s space at the back of Building 1. Betsy traveled to France recently and has some fabulous finds just for YOU. What would you just L-O-V-E to take home?
A French carved marble milkmaid named Madeleine gazes over the wonderful mix of antiques and modern in the space. These large chateau windows with mirrored inserts make the space seem so open, and they will do that for your home, too.
The beautiful French gilt mirror above will open up your spaces at home, too. And just look at the lamps, swan, bar cart, and more that will freshen your home for spring.
This freshly unloaded marble sink and painted, gilded architectural fragment may be just the decorative items that YOU have been looking for. Come see what MAI dealer Betsy Austin has picked for you, and it’s here now – fresh from France!
