It's About Style...
Carling Nichols unites the
enthusiasm and dynamic energy of three women who share a love of timeless Chinese design. They
have combined their strengths in design, retail, and management to create a shop filled with
extraordinary Chinese antiques. Their collection ranges from wonderful 18th century lacquered
cabinets and altar tables to Han Dynasty painted pottery warriors.
The partners regularly travel to China so they can personally select from the finest antique furniture
and accessories found in Beijing, Shanghai, and Hong Kong. Their purchases reflect a passion for the understated,
well balanced characteristics of classic Ming style. The trio search for pieces that reflect the perfect
proportions, masterful construction and exquisite finishes of that period.
Located in the historic neighborhood of Georgetown in Washington, DC Carling Nichols presents its treasures
in an elegant and modern atmosphere inspiring its clients to embrace the Asian aesthetic.
