Nobili Antiques

My friend Leah of Nobili Antiques recently moved into her new digs in Costa Mesa, sharing showroom space with the venerable antiquarian Lee Stanton. Lee is in a class by himself; I remember when he took over Gep Durenburger's San Juan Capistrano store; loved his interview on The Skirted Roundtable, so Leah is in great company~

Right inside the door, the tone is set; beautiful mirror frame~

French & English smalls can be found in abundance in Leah's showroom~
and at all price ranges....
you can find all kinds of whimsical pieces here~
and pretty pieces like this chandelier~
French clock hands~
a Barometer from a trip to Beaune~

chair forms hung from the ceiling create a great line...
this view of the front window is so serene...
many mirrors, here L.P~
and another; the supply of mirrors between Lee and Leah is amazing~
a pretty vignette in another corner, with white cameo trumeau~
If you find yourself in Southern California, I hope you will stop by Nobili Antiques; Leah will soon be online and I will post when she launches her website + blog....
In the meantime, you can call Leah at 949.887.0711
