John Rosselli Antiques – Chandeliers, Lanterns & Sconces, Oh my!

Antiques, Interior Beauty, John Rosselli Antiques, Lighting, Mirrors 11 Comments

As an avid lover of French and Asian antiques, stepping into John Rosselli Antiques took my breath away.  The shop is a large gallery of objets d’art.

Lanterns, Mirrors, Sconces, Furniture, Pottery - Beauty everywhere you look!

I don’t know about you, but typically most shops have a few items that catch my eye and make me covet them.  But everywhere I looked in John Rosselli Antiques, I found something I loved.

This lantern makes me feel transported to another world

On the back wall in the photo above are a pair of sconces I would love to have for my new dining room.  See, for the past few months, in addition to focusing on client projects, my husband and I made the decision to downsize and live a Slow Home life.  This entailed staging our former home, selling said home (not so easy in this slow Florida housing market), and then moving into a temporary apartment for a month or so.  And now we are in the process of moving into our new abode.  Consequently, I don’t yet have time to showcase all the wonders of John Rosselli Antiques in one blogpost, so I’ll just tantalize you with an array of some of the beautiful lighting.


I apologize for the blurry photograph but I just had to show you this cool star shaped pendant lighting fixture.

An unexpected star to liven the mix

And this is just a sample of the beautiful lighting to be found in John Rosselli Antiques.

In the next post, I’ll show you the fabulous mirrors…or maybe the outstanding collection of blue and white pottery…or maybe the beautiful furniture…

Which would you like to see next?

    Was just there yesterday and whenever I go I get a bit well”Loopy”. Something comes over me and I feel like I want it all. Every corner is filled with goodies all tasteful, fine and beautiful. So unique too. John was wonderful and so down to earth.No other place like it.

      Thanks for stopping by, C. Smith. It’s a great Chinese lanter, but to find out more about it, you’d need to call or visit John Rosselli Antiques in NYC.

    Your photos are so tantalizing! I love chandeliers and want one desperately, but I live in a ranch house with eight foot ceilings and my DH is over 6 feet tall. So I dream and look for a very small one to put in my boudoir.

    I can’t wait for the rest of your photos.

      Thanks, Rissi, that’s how I feel, tantalized and wishing I could have some of these in my home. How about using two small chandeliers instead of table lamps on nightstands or on a buffet? Or perhaps you could raise a small section of ceiling, though I know that’s major work!

    I have the same question: is this is Florida? What a collection he has!!!

    • Anne says:

      Sarah, I haven’t even shown you half of it, his shop is amazing! These are from his NYC shop on East 61st St.

    I’d like to see anything in this shop you want to share. Where is this — Florida?

    • Anne says:

      Scribbler, he has two retail shops, one in New York City and one in DC. His trade showrooms are in NYC, FL, and Chicago. I visited his NYC retail shop. After I do a little more unpacking in my new home, I’ll be posting more pics. (Truly I was like a kid in a candy store…)
