Can you give some background on Charlotte Nail Antiques?
Charlotte Nail Antiques began as an interior design business over 30 years ago. Marketing and art history were included in my studies in college and that began the focus in my career. I soon learned that antiques and art used in my clients’ homes added that special element that created a lasting value. Beautiful old things stand the test of time with the rich patina that age has bestowed on them. Antiques are appealing to the younger generation as they want to protect the environment. Why use more resources and cut down more trees when the antiques are available with better construction? Key antique pieces will add great beauty and lasting presence to interiors.
What makes Charlotte Nail Antiques unique?
Charlotte Nail Antiques provides a focus on the best quality, with an emphasis on 18th,19th century and vintage 20th century pieces. I showcase interesting combinations using these items to spark ideas and add a special creative influence to interiors, blending the past to the present day.

I provide European pieces, in particular, French and Italian neoclassical styles. I curate the gallery personally with chandeliers, French mirrors, furniture, and statuary. I strive to achieve a multi-dimensional collection by mixing styles and different periods. Please bring your measurements and photos and I would love to assist you to find the perfect piece for you or your client.
