Private Client and Consultancy Services

To the Trade Since 2014 we have been dedicated to the antiques industry. Traveling overseas frequently, we maintain and establish new connections with the best dealers and resources across Europe and the UK. These longstanding and well established relationships allow us to gain early access to newly discovered inventory. While buying and selling antiques some clients began to rely on our expertise and market insight to help them build their collections. We work with private clients who are looking for particular items. Whether it's a certain style but has to be the right size, or you need a piece to fill out a collection, we can leverage the broad reach of our network across Europe to locate and purchase your requested item. Additionally, we have the ability to see upcoming trends before they make it stateside. This trend forecasting allows us to get ahead of the curve and inform our private clients of the current market and advise when it would be timely for them to buy or sell. This process covers sourcing, shipping, appraisals, submitting appraisals to insurance companies, and monitoring the marketplace. To become a Private Client and to learn more about our antiques consulting services please contact info@modernantiquarianshop.com .

Tours

Tours We have partnered with the Antiques Diva & Co to bring her tours stateside! We are happy to share that we will be leading some of the tours in Connecticut, Massachusetts, and New York. We have spent days and days exploring the tiny antiques hubs that are scattered throughout New England to bring you the most interesting and productive tours possible. If you are just getting into antiques, think it might be an interesting way to see a new state, or really just need to escape from the city for a day or two these tours are the perfect dose of culture and exploring! Among the tours we have beautiful homes that are filled to the brim with Museum quality pieces to warehouse that go on for ever and have scattered gems throughout… Each tour can be tailored perfectly to your specifications, whether you are looking for a day trip to the Hudson Valley or you are looking for an overnight stay in upstate Connecticut, we can point you in the right direction and determine what tour is best suited to your needs.

Berkshires Tours The Berkshires Tours
Tucked away from busy New York, the historic Berkshires are located in picturesque western Massachusetts. This tour is ideal for those looking for a dynamic experience combining arts and antiques. Home to Norman Rockwell, the Berkshires offers a unique cultural experience with the Massachusetts Museum of Contemporary Art, live concerts at Tanglewood, farm-to-table restaurant scene, art galleries, lovely B7Bs, and untouched small town New England charm. For the trade, continue your journey down into Litchfield County for destination antique shops. If you’re looking for some R&R, stay at Canyon Ranch for a world class spa experience. We also liaise you with a preferred shipping to get your purchases home. This tour pairs well with a tour of upstate New York and the Hudson Valley area, or combined with Brimfield when available.

Design Services

Design Services One of the major differences between our antiques company and others is that we offer design services. This sector of the company is lead by Kelly Maguire, Creative Director of The Modern Antiquarian. While Kelly loves antiques as much as Margaret, how does an Art History major escape without a passion for antique artifact? They don’t! Kelly loves giving old pieces new functions and meaning in her design work. Maguire loves incorporating personal art, modern objects, antique gems and collaborating with clients to create the perfectly curated space for you to work and live in. We offer design services from styling to full decorating services. If you are looking for a fresh, unique and artistic perspective to your design project, we are the place for you. If you are interested in working with Kelly please reach out on our contact page here !
