What began innocently enough as a young boy riding around upstate New York with his mother while she shopped for French Antique Furniture and Collectibles in the late 1950's has turned into a serious addiction with apparently no known cure. In fact, the obsession is so bad that our 31,000 square foot showroom is bursting at the seams and our workshop is running at a clip typically reserved for Elves in December.
With many years in the antiques field and a dynamic and broad inventory of antiques for sale, you’ll love partnering with us for all of your collection needs. Antiques on Old Plank Road is an industry challenger and widely sought out by top elite clientele. Trade professionals know when they choose us, they're choosing pieces and furnishings made and cared for with top-notch craftsmanship, artistry and the right amount of heart.
Old Plank's mission is to discover, carefully curate and connect specialized artifacts to the human experience through an ominous eye, while building, designing and crafting state-of-the-art furnishings to withstand the test of time and live in the family home for generations to come.
The fuel to feed this fire is most often found in the English Midlands, Italian Countryside or the charming South of France. Dozens of European trips have yielded thousands of treasures brought back to America in shipping containers and suitcases (when necessary).
Our craftsmen can make beautiful antique pieces with custom finishes, as well as modern furniture in wood and metal. Everything is handmade, in any size, any material, and any finish that you want. You have total control! And yes, we have our own upholstery shop that uses horsehair, down and old-fashioned hand-tied springs.
Sometimes we find a piece of antique furniture that is so special it would be a shame for it to be the only one of its kind. When this happens we study it, take precise notes on how it was built and construct full-size templates which allow our craftsman to create an authentic reproduction and scale it to any size needed.
The result is an heirloom quality piece, ready to be enjoyed for generations.
A very long time ago, my wife Robin and I were walking through a Flea Market at the outskirts of Paris and standing right on the sidewalk of rue des Rosiers was a life size sheep, made famous by the recent Architectural Digest expose, for the equivalent of $5000 and without any hesitation, I told my wife to forget it. For whom was I to predict that what a sheep would bring years later (made the same mistake with some cars, but much more serious). Ever since then, I have been seeking an affordable alternative, but there was always something out of scale, or just plain weird about them. The Old Plank Sheep Collection is hand-made in America, by an artist and has the greatest face and wonderful proportions. Virtually impossible not fall immediately in love. Constructed in resin, or in solid bronze with real fur (as shown in this listing). And yes, they also function as a stool for extra seating.
We can also create an item based on your sketch or drawing, and even duplicate favorite Antique Furniture for sale from a photograph. Our workshop has the capability and experience of true old-world craftsmanship, taking your dreams and turning them into a reality. Our projects range from a solid bronze Giacometti inspired desk, to a massive 16' farm table made from our exclusive stock of Antique Furniture, naturally aged French timber, or a custom kitchen island for a brand new home. We work with interior designers and individuals worldwide, dedicating the hours of time and effort to make sure all your expectations are exceeded.
