The 2019 Charleston Antiques Show will once again be held at the Charleston Gaillard Center (95 Calhoun Street, Charleston SC 29401). There is a parking garage adjacent to the Gaillard Center.
Spring in Charleston is the ideal season to see a showcase of English, European, and American period furnishings, decorative arts & fine art, architectural elements, garden furniture, vintage jewelry, and silver--all from antiquities to the 20th century.
Founded in 1670, Charleston quickly rose to prominence as the colonies' most significant seaport, importing the finest in 18th and 19th century material culture. Today the city's legacy of Continental, European and Asian influences can still be found in its alluring architecture and decorative arts. Because of this unique heritage, Charleston's annual antiques show has attracted the attention of connoisseurs around the world.
The show is a premier destination for collectors and enthusiasts who enjoy seeing and learning about incorporating antiques into modern-day decor. Intimate Talks with Design in Mind feature salon-style talks with nationally renowned designers. Proceeds benefit the advocacy and preservation programs of Historic Charleston Foundation.
New this year is the addition of the Design Pavilion. The Antiques Council is delighted to work with Historic Charleston Foundation in introducing the Design Pavilion, a collection of highly curated artisans known for their superior craftsmanship, as a complement to the Charleston Antiques Show. As an organization that advocates to preserve the area's cultural character and honor its history as an international trading port, it is only natural for the Foundation to honor these artisans, many of whom are using traditional methods of craftsmanship, often with a modern twist. The Antiques Council is proud to work with these superior craftsmen, as each one of them reflects the high standards for which the Antiques Council is known.
