La Dolce Vita is pleased to welcome The Highboy as our newest sponsor! The Highboy is an online resource for antiques, fine art, jewelry, and exceptional objects. Launched in early 2014 by co-founders and antiques experts Douglas Scott and Olga Granada-Scott , The Highboy has already been lauded by multiple publications including the Wall Street Journal who called it a hip antiques marketplace for the iPhone set. Their easy to navigate website allows users to shop over 4,000 items by price, category, style or period, from more than 75 dealers. As a second-generation antiques dealer, Olga’s mission has been to inspire shoppers by creating a narrative for them that allows them to envision what it might be like to live with and enjoy any of the carefully-curated items on the site by sharing the beauty and history of each item in a fresh, exciting way while breaking through the stereotypes that the antiques world is a stodgy place.

Design professionals are encouraged to join the Designers’ Club which grants them access to exclusive benefits such as automated trade pricing and shipping as well as sneak previews to special sales events. The Highboy’s new Concierge Service is a custom sourcing program created to help interior designers find era- and style- specific art and antiques easily. By simply sending an email to a designated address with info about what you are looking for, the Highboy’s dedicated team will reach out to their extensive network of dealers on your behalf. Once they’ve found some options for the you, you will receive photos, descriptions, and the opportunity to purchase the item before it becomes part of The Highboy’s regular inventory. The Highboy is truly a revolutionary company, changing the way in which people shop for antiques. For me personally, style is all about the mix. I love to mix pieces from various time periods and design movements that can range from masculine to feminine and from traditional to modern. Below, you’ll find my personal mix of must-haves from The Highboy.
