THE LASTING IMPRESSION OF FIRESIDE ADS

Here at Fireside Antiques, we have always taken great pride in presenting ourselves to you. Today, in typical 21st-century mode, we turn much focus to our Instagram feed, our facebook page, our 1stDibs store and our (newly redesigned!) website. But in the early era of this business, print publication was our favorite way to see and be seen.

Throughout the 1990’s, Fireside regularly published print advertisements in favorite design publications, namely Veranda and Southern Accents magazines.  The design process was easy: we simply picked our favorite thing on the showroom floor to feature in that month’s ad.  Customers routinely walk into the Fireside Antiques showroom clutching one of our “vintage” ads, asking, “Can you help me find this look for my home?”  Not only are these pieces of printed history special to us, but they are a constant source of inspiration for our customers’ own homes. For decades our ads have inspired many road trips to our showroom!

These curated advertisements are just as relevant today as they were upon publication in the 1990’s.  After all, a classic antique is timeless and always has a place in ever-evolving style. We have selected a few antiques in the showroom today that are inspired by our “throwback” ads from Veranda and Southern Accents. We hope you enjoy them as much as we do!

Today our online resources are updated frequently: daily inventory additions to the website, regular publishings to our blog, and frequent posts to our Instagram feed.  But there is something refined (and even romantic) in the permanent history of the printed page.  Take a look for yourself, and let us know if there is anything you like!
