From the Dealer
N. P. Trent Antiques today is the culmination of 30 plus years of diverse influences, experiences and scholarship. Our initial beginnings were selling American furniture in New York. Then our subsequent move in 1984 to Palm Beach, Florida led to a major shift in our focus. Our experiences in Palm Beach were multifaceted. We established two shops, one in West Palm Beach and one on Worth Avenue, we purchased house contents of well known collectors, and we appraised for banks, attorneys, collectors, and national insurance companies. The research required for the appraisal business and the acquisition of house contents laid the foundation for our later interest and expansion into many diversified fields, primarily English and European antiques. Added to all of the above was our desire to create elegant showrooms with a diversity of antiques, representing the way that people actually live. Our shops became a destination and source for designers and collectors worldwide. Our experience has also included exhibiting at the AADLA Shows and the Palm Beach International Antique Shows. Our expertise has been recognized in many of the leading publications, including Architectural Digest, Southern Living, Veranda, The Magazine Antiques, The International Herald Tribune and the Palm Beach Daily News. During a vacation in the Hudson Valley in 2010, we fell in love with and purchased a historic brick Georgian home in the village of Kinderhook and decided to move our business and make the village our permanent home. This house, in which we now reside, was recently featured in the October 2014 issue of The Magazine Antiques. Our showroom continues to reflect our broad background and our passion for the best.
