Antiques Direct Worldwide is the online version of the Vancouver British Columbia furniture store Antique Market located in the warehouse district at 1324 Franklin Street at Clark Drive, a resource for anybody who appreciates variety, quality, value, great prices, and the "wow" factor. Among our many customers are architects, interior designers, restaurants, other retail stores, movie studios and people just like you. We buy directly from the source and pass the savings on to you. After being around for nearly 35 years, people still walk in for the first time every day. The reaction is always the same; "Wow!" We are very current, constantly checking out what people are looking for in the marketplace. We do our homework and pay attention to fashion - that is where industrial furniture first started showing up. Think of us as a 21st Century Antique Market, no matter what your taste or style. Come prepared; we have 20,000 sq. feet.
We have lots of experience at negotiating our way through the markets of India, China, Vietnam, Egypt, England and Belgium. We search out antiques that reflect the timelessness, the smells, the textures of those countries. We import pieces that speak of tradition and reveal themselves in the layers of culture that have blended together to create a style that is unique. You make a connection on a deeper level. For new furniture we try to source out suppliers who use reclaimed and salvage woods such as elm, pine, mahogany and teak or timber harvesting from mangaged forests. For our Industrial line of furniture you see a lot of repurposed materials.
We have seen trends come and go, and then come back into style
again. We have carried Arts and Crafts, Art Deco, Art Nouveau,
Mission, Victorian, Edwardian, Gothic, Regency, Modern and now
Chinese and Indian Antiques, Industrial, and Steam Punk furniture.
Add in Architectural elements like handmade ornamental French Iron
Panels, Antique French Iron Gates, Doors, Railings, Stained Glass
Windows, Fireplace Mantels and a large and growing selection of
lighting and shades, and you have some idea of what we are all
