This Balmain store sells hard-to-find restored antiques.
Quintessential Duckeggblue sells antique and industrial furniture and objects, all sourced by owner Leanne Carter-Taylor. Carter-Taylor searches high and low for coveted antique pieces from all over the world. Things like armchairs, farmhouse tables and clocks from Europe, America, Russia and the UK are sourced and carefully restored before appearing in Carter-Taylor's charming Balmain shopfront. The latest finds are always on the website, but a visit in-store will let you fully appreciate the old-timey atmosphere and discover curiosities ranging from pigeon racing clocks to handblown glass eyes hailing all the way from the Napoleonic era.
