About UsThank you for visiting Christy Lorraine Interiors. I was born in upstate New York where my love for old furniture began. I grew up in a home full of European antique furniture my parents collected while stationed in Germany. As a young child I was always fascinated with furniture construction and design. At the early age of 2, I was making my own houses and furniture out of paper and tape. I still have them today! Fast forward, my family moved to Southern California where I was exposed to culture and art on a whole new level. I studied Interior Design and graduated Cum Laude from Cal St. Northridge. My favorite subjects by far were art history and the history of interiors and architecture. I had a wonderful professor named Karlene Morris who was hugely passionate about antiques. She did a research fellowship at Winterthur Museum and did an exceptional job transferring her knowledge on to us. I was also blessed to travel with her to the Hudson Valley area to tour private homes and museums to study early American antiques and design. I am so lucky that she and I are still in contact and she continues to mentor me today.
After college I took a detour due to the economy and opened a business doing wedding floral design. I successfully ran that business for over 5 years. I would still frequent estate sales, flea markets and antique stores whenever the opportunity would arise. I bought many of the decor and supplies for my weddings second hand. After closing my business I decided that it was time to get back on track and do what I believe I am meant to do. I collect antiques and decor from local auctions, estates and other antique stores to sell online. I have an instagram account @christylorraineinteriors and I absolutely love what I am doing. I am proud to be a part of one of the most environmentally friendly professions there is. I really feel blessed to play a small part in the preservation of our past. There is nothing more interesting to me then learning everything I can about a piece and understanding all I can about it. I hope you find your next treasure in my store. I look forward to providing all of my clients with exceptional customer service and beautiful items.
