If "antique furnishings" recall images of your grandmother's dresser, you'll want to visit Capitol Furnishings for a new perspective. The shop collects antique and vintage furniture, lighting and accessories that are anything but staid or conservative. The pieces are drawn from 19th and 20th century work and each will make a bold, dramatic statement in your home. Mirrored 1940s dressers from France meet incomparable Italian glass chandeliers and lamps from the 1950s. Funky French club chairs the '20s are a vision in lacquer and cowhide. The store's own line of Lucite tables and lamps, with beveled detailing reminiscent of older pieces are a perfect representation of the store's modus operandi: antique style that shines in a modern world.
