A great discovery in Atlanta, Providence Antiques has a unique collection of European inspired housewares and art. We discovered them after seeing a pic in Real Simple that featured their Vagabond Vintage Euro Rack ($168) as a bathroom fixture.Providence Antiques is the brainchild of Claudia Thompson, whose eye for putting together new and old objects to create cozy, sophisticated rooms with a little bit of Shabby Chic mixed in is on the money.
