JUDY FRANKEL — JUDY FRANKEL ANTIQUES

1748 NORTHWOOD DR., TROY, MI 48084 | 248-649-4399 | WWW.JUDYFRANKELANTIQUES.COM

With her exquisite taste and keen eye for European style, Judy Frankel has been synonymous with unique, decorative antiques since 1991. Judy Frankel Antiques, at more than 12,000 square feet, is the kind of place you can walk into and lose yourself for an hour or two. Every wall, ceiling, and inch of floor space is adorned with objects lovingly selected by Frankel. The gallery features a well-curated mixture of styles, and most patrons are thrilled to see how effortlessly she can tie together an Art Deco piece, a Chinese vessel, and a beaded chandelier. “People come here looking for things they can’t find in stores or catalogs,” Frankel says. Frankel’s clients are primarily interior designers and those who like to decorate with antiques, but everyone feels welcome. Frankel greets patrons with a warm hello, and then lets them explore to their heart’s content. She buys most of her pieces in Europe, and assists clients who are looking for particular antiques. In addition to her gallery in Troy, Frankel does a robust business online and ships pieces — even those that are fragile — all over the world for her discerning customers.
