The Antiquarian
I walked into a setting of period English furniture and the smell of fresh furniture polish; I was never the same. says Rick Bevilacqua, who left a career as a management consultant to open Essex Antiquarians. His one-stop antiques source of furniture, paintings, Oriental rugs and other decorative objects (such as a tole cachepot and wicker birdcage pictured below) attracts designers. among them John Cottrell (below right, with Bevilacqua, left).
