The Barn at 17, provides many outstanding interior designers in the Boston area with an important resource for antiques and restoration. Many have been recognized in both national and regional design venues, which have been featured in many trade and home design publications. Our showrooms feature distinctive antique furnishings and accessories.
One of our strengths is in working hands-on with designers and individuals to find the perfect items to complement their home. Our clients appreciate the craftsmanship and quality that is inherent in these pieces, many of which are less expensive than the reproductions that manufacturers now seek to copy. Antiques are a wonderful way to enjoy beautiful furnishings while also investing in furnishings that appreciate in value over time wheras with new furnishings, the investment may decline quickly as it is soon considered "used furniture" in terms of resale value.
The antiques inventory at The Barn at 17 covers the gamut from late-18th-century to mid-1950s in an ever-changing stock.
