French Antique Furniture Shop in Melbourne, Australia
Miguel regularly travels to France to find pieces with personality for his shop, his criteria being whether he “would happily put each piece in his own house”. Miguel Meirelles hand-picks French antiques as well as decorative and quirky items. These French antique pieces are displayed mainly in a ‘as-found condition’ with full restoration and conservation services available at our Malvern premises. Periods and styles include Louis XIV to Napoleon III, as well as Art Nouveau, Art Deco and more.
Miguel Meirelles trained as a conservator of antique furniture at the “Istituto per l’Arte e il Restauro” in Florence (1978-1980), and today runs his Melbourne antiques retail shop at the same premises as his conservation workshop. The workshop is kept busy working on items that Miguel imports from overseas, and also on furniture belonging to local collectors and museums.
View our website, and feel free to contact us directly for our expert knowledge of French antiques, and how to conserve and restore them.
Miguel is happy to arrange for short term rentals of his furniture and decorative items to television, film, theatre and advertising studios.
