Pay homage to the past with local Newport antiques
By Somer Flaherty Photos by Jody Tiongco
There’s something about antiques; they’re conversation starters and inspire questions about provenance—who could have owned them before, when and where they are from. Even if you aren’t sure of an antique’s past, finding a special place for it in your home is still an opportunity to create your own story or give it a new cachet. We scoured local antique shops to find some of our favorite design pieces.
