Painted Antique Cottage Furniture At Villa's Corner Gallery, Winsted, CT

Sweet Cottage Style Furniture Featured At "Villa's Corner Gallery" In Winsted, CT

For years I have driven right by "Villa's Corner Gallery" at 304 main Street in Winsted, CT, but never stopped in because I thought it was simply a showroom for their upcoming auctions and not a retail store. But a few weeks ago, I was shopping in the area and I noticed some terrific painted Cottage style furniture on the sidewalk. The colors were a delicious combination of Seafoam green and yellow.

Antique Dressers And Vintage Furnishings

Not only was there some lovely pieces on the sidewalk, but the window was filled with painted furniture and a wonderful vintage kitchen display. So of course, I had to go inside. The first floor is a jumble of antiques and collectibles, here there and everywhere. The fella who ran Villa's has passed away and his daughter is trying to straighten the place out.

Check Out The Second Floor At "Villa's Corner Gallery"

You will find a more organized second floor with some very nice collections of antique furniture. Among the Oak tables , cabinets and dressers, there are also some lovely painted Cottage style furnishings in combinations of Seafoam green and yellow and also Seafvoam Green and white.
