In truth, there's never been a better time to be in (or shop) the antiques industry , with quality items and indispensable knowledge available at the swipe of a smart phone. Antiques (and authenticity) are more desirable than ever.

Panelists will discuss how the antique market has changed, why antiques are essential to design projects across a wide range of ages and aesthetics, and how to thoughtfully integrate the quality and history of such time-honed treasures into well-edited, elegant, yet unpretentious interiors.
