About the

European Antiques & Furnishings (est 2004) is a specialist dealer in 19th and 20th-century European Antiques with an accent on predominantly French, English, Belgian, Swedish and Italian furniture and decorative items.

Meredith’s four showrooms are based in her home/showroom villa at 21 Ariki Street in Grey Lynn, Auckland.

Due to my business being in a residential area, viewing is by appointment only. (This is a council regulation). Please don’t let this deter your visit, you are more than welcome to come and browse at your leisure.

In addition to the Grey Lynn showrooms, retail stores have been opened with Francis Hooper and Benny Castles of WORLD. The stores offer a selection of hand-picked European mid-century and antique decorative items as well as the most exclusive beauty and skincare brands from around the world.
