Shop pieces that fit your style in West Palm’s decorator’s haven: Antique Row.
Majolica | Vivid & Whimsical
Once the stuff of common folk in Victorian England, the dynamic tin glazed earthenware known as majolica is now considered high society because of collector demand. Colorful decorations—which often include fruit, vegetables, birds, seashells and images popular in the Renaissance, such as lions, mythological beasts and rams—breathe life into these pieces.
Our Antique Row Pick: Nineteenth-century majolica pitcher with shell and seaweed pattern, $450. Regency Antiques and Home (561-358-9878, regencyantiquesandhome.com)
British Colonial | Worldly & Charming
During the British Empire, families returning home after being stationed in the tropics and in Asian countries brought items they had acquired, including wicker, bamboo, Chinese porcelain and rugs. The unlikely marriage of these exotic pieces with their traditional elements created the British Colonial style.

Hollywood Regency | Bold & Glamorous
Harken back to the Golden Age of Hollywood with this style’s intoxicating mix of nineteenth-century French, Greek Revival and Modernist touches that evoke a glitzy entertaining vibe.

Murano Glass | Sophisticated & Dynamic
Situated in the Venetian Lagoon, the island of Murano boasts generations of glass-blowing masters. Murano pieces, which include everything from small ornaments to elaborate chandeliers, illustrate an exquisite craftsmanship and fragile beauty that has long generated international delight.
Rococo | Elegant & Complex
In stark contrast to the masculine Louis XIV furniture style, the Louis XV, or Rococo, style showcases girl power by embracing curves and elaborate surface ornamentation.
