An introduction to Négrel Antiques
Every year we travel to France, scouting different regions for singular furnishings and decor. While our collections are primarily French, we stay alert to exciting and unusual pieces from other countries as well…such as an English Chesterfield sofa, a Spanish trestle table, a painted German chest or a Venetian Murano chandelier.
Each piece must meet our judicious standards of character and craftsmanship. Through travel and study, we have gained expertise in antique periods and styles. Yet, in the end, discerning eyes and well-honed taste set our collections apart.
To give clients first choice from new shipments, we host "Hot Off the Ship" previews at our Courtyard Shops Warehouse in Austin, with items accessible online. Once a year we hold a Warehouse Sale.
Négrel Antiques is known for consummate service. If we don't have what a customer wants, we seek it out on our buying trips. Contact us with your requests. A taste of France is accessible to all, from serious collectors of the finest antiques to individuals who wish to add a little French flair to their surroundings.
We are preparing for a buying trip to the south of France in March, and we expect to return with more wonderful items for our galleries.
Our names are Cathy and Pierre Négrel, and we are the owners of Négrel Antiques. We and our staff, which includes Karn Hill, Margie Chabre, Julie Fouillet and Rick Kelley, are happy to assist you in your selections. Enlist our knowledge to learn about an item's provenance, identify pieces that complement each other or help determine proportions appropriate for your space.
