"I am a shopper and a shopkeeper to the core!"
It's been 25 years since I opened my showroom, Charles Spada Fabrics and Antiques. Formerly at the Boston Design Center, we have re-located to the SoWa Art and Design District in Boston’s South End. With the launch of our new space, it seemed that the introduction of Charles Spada Home was a natural progression. I invite you to explore, and hope that you will enjoy these treasures as much as we have enjoyed hunting them down and presenting them to you.
THE BEAUTY OF HANDWOVEN SILKS
In the early ’90’s I discovered and began collecting these amazingly beautiful, remarkably delicate and precisely executed French needlepoints on silk executed end of the 18th - turn of the 19th century. The precision and artistry of the maker boggles the mind in these embroidered and painted country scenes of the day. Almost always found in their original gilded frames they are a collection worth pursuing.
Explore these wonderful silk embroideries along with the rest of our art collection.
The Joy of Entertaining
Our collection of irresistible tabletop pieces range from timeless classics for everyday to those treasured heirloom pieces for special entertaining. Indulge on ironstone, transferware, unusual 18th and 19th century serving pieces, water pitchers that welcome a bouquet of flowers, polished silver, and so much more...
