Soniat House Antiques

About Soniat House Antiques
After having furnished a hotel and multiple private residences, Rodney and Frances Smith's love of antique acquisition has never abated. In 1996 they opened Soniat House Antiques Gallery within their hotel, Soniat House. A handpicked collection of 18th, 19th, and 20th Century French, English, and Italian furniture, light fixtures, and decorative objects are offered. Mid-Century Modern is a period Mr. Smith is currently enjoying exploring. An early member of 1st Dibs, Mr. Smith enjoys working personally with members of the trade as well as private collectors. He also enjoys working with his own hotel guests.
