Connoisseurs of fine Swedish antiques needn’t look further than the corner of Center Avenue and Broadway for their next finds, thanks to the opening of Emerson Bailey’s new showroom. Formerly housed in a Cherry Hills Village studio, the collection—curated by veteran interior designer Susan Weiss and antiques dealer Daniel Larsson—has room to shine in a sun-drenched gallery on the second floor of a century-old former firehouse.

There, treasures from Sweden and beyond mingle with midcentury and contemporary finds, including a vintage Fritz Hansen Egg chair, Näfveqvarn vessels, Sekt lighting fixtures and Cappelen Dimyr tapestries and rugs.

“Curating classical antiques alongside contemporary artisan pieces is what we’re known for, and this space allows us to do that in a very beautiful way,” says Weiss, who offers full-service interior design to homeowners worldwide. “When our clients put these special finds in their homes, that’s what really brings a space to life.”
