Michel Antoine, from a family of antique dealers, specializes in 1983 in antique carpets and textiles.
He opened his store in Ixelles where he exhibited treasures of oriental rugs made in the 19th and early 20th centuries.
Very quickly he was assisted by his future wife who was training in England to become a restorer.
The couple is passionate about carpets and their interior looks like Ali baba's cave.
No wonder their daughter after completing her training as a photographer and interior designer joins them to work with them.
The difficulty of finding beautiful old pieces and the sudden quality of colors and graphic design found in the new collections of kilims and rugs prompted collaboration with Afghan manufacturers.
This also allows them to create their own designs.
With Michel's experience in antique carpets and the creativity of his wife and daughter, the results obtained are highly appreciated by their customers.
The name of the Michel Antoine store has become a benchmark of good taste, quality and originality.
