When Black and White Is All You Need For An Engaging Antique Display

Artsy Antique Displays Which Convey Minimalist Style  

Some people like to stuff their antique booth displays with a lot of collectibles believeing that you need to use up as much expensive space as you can. Other dealers prefer a more artsy look and spend time displaying their objects with just the right balance of interest, shapes, graphic appeal.
I was immediatley draw to the minimalist look of this black and white display at The Harwinton Antiques Show. What do you it too sparse or did it capture your attention and why?
