Like any true style maven, Richmond, Virginia has worn many personas. From Civil War stronghold to brick-and-mortar industrial ground; from punk capitol to emerging hipster city (with a sweet, southern vibe), Richmond is one city that debutantes on repeat. Shop vintage Richmond furniture and you’ll find its antique stores are just as layered as its history. So go on, swing low, this is how dapper southern style is done.
While it may not seem like a Southern charmer at first blush (like, say, Charleston), Richmond, Virginia will steal your heart. No longer just the site of “Give me Liberty or Give Me Death,” this magnolia-dotted city values its art just as much as its deep fried catfish and BBQ. Proof? Richmond has converted warehouses into public art space and inked itself as a U.S. tattoo capital. And used Richmond furniture? Well, it’s tailor-made for veranda sitting—or renovated loft living.
