Maria Cohen officially opened Maria's Antiques in Charlotte, NC over 20 years ago, but her love of antiques began decades prior.
Perhaps her own personal history, as a Cuban immigrant forced to leave everything behind, fueled her passion and appreciation for objects that have a little history attached to them. She had none of her own family treasures to pass down, so she adopted the discarded mementos of others.
Eventually, she realized she needed to channel the energy spent on this hobby into a business that enabled her to share a love of personal histories with others.
She travels to Europe regularly, always in search of special and unique items for her customers, specializing in English and French antiques as well as Victorian bamboo furniture and accessories.
Maria’s Antiques operates out of two fixed locations in Charlotte: Alexander Scott and Slate Interiors.
We are excited to have her exhibiting at Antique & DesignCenter of High Point for the first time this Spring in space 64d.
