About Us
L’Antique Demeure is a play on words in French: on the one hand it means "The Antique Dwelling" and on the other “What Is Old Remains”.
A selection of items featured in my shop come in part from our 16th century family home in France and represent the obsessive antiquing and collecting of two generations. My hope is to pass on my knowledge of these objects and my reward is for these carefully curated pieces to find their way into your home, to be cherished and for their story to live on!

L'Antique Demeure made its first appearance online almost three years ago as a mean to test the waters, alongside BonneHeureMesdames which offered Vintage clothing, fashion accessories and haberdashery. They are now expanding into a single store on RubyLane.

My name is Benedicte Nemorin and I continuously search for new pieces, manage and carefully curate what is presented in my store.
I grew up in France, England and Germany surrounded by antiques. I shared my parents' passion and started collecting when I was a child. My mother was a dealer for years and I became an assistant of sorts, learning the ropes in antique fairs all over France. My love for antiques and decorative arts led me to study Interior Design in Paris and to become an Interior Designer, practicing for many years in Miami.
I now live in Brooklyn and have gone back to my first love: antiques!

Each item has been carefully selected and inspected, and is described as accurately as possible. And whenever necessary, I will share with you additional photographs or videos to ensure that you see the object accurately. I prefer objects that show their original patina and will always explain in my listings why some flaws or old accidents are part of the object's history and beauty.
