How does your garden grow? With the help of Authentic Provence on West Palm’s Antique Row.
When owners Susan and Wolfgang Hofherr moved from Italy to Florida’s Palm Beaches in the mid-1990s, they noticed that the area’s stunning Mediterranean-style homes were lacking magnificent gardens to match. With Wolfgang specializing in international antiques and Susan in fashion design, the couple began sourcing authentic monumental garden antiques that stay true to the artisans of thousands of years ago. They’ve since evolved beyond the Provençal lifestyle, importing garden antiques from Italy, England and Belgium.
Along with their showroom and sprawling warehouse, customers can wander the Secret Garden for sculptures, fountains, benches and urns made of masterfully hand-sculpted limestone, along with rare finds such as Versailles planter boxes.
Lovers of midcentury modern design should peruse a separate showroom filled with period furniture featuring exquisite 1950s European and signed designer pieces as well as Murano glass lighting. The entire collection can also be viewed online.
