Showplace Antique + Design Center is a hidden gem of an antique store in New York City. Located right next to beautiful Madison Square Park, Showplace Antiques houses four floors of galleries, room settings, and showcases which feature items ranging from iconic designer furniture and vintage couture to historical oddities and retro appliances. Make sure to stop by the third floor for attractive room settings, Mid-Century Brazilian Furniture, Scandinavian Design and a vast array of lighting, jewelry, furniture, and pottery as well as decorative and fine art objects. More than just an antique store- Showplace holds auctions every other weekend where particularly savvy buyers gather to try to get the best value on estate-fresh pieces in a range of price points. They serve coffee and refreshments at each auction. Can’t make it? You can also place absentee bids or register to bid over the phone.
