Individuals who wish to enter the interior design field may want to consider the various uses of antique décor, as some members of this industry are using older pieces in more of their work.

To showcase the various ways members of her team are using these items, designer Judy Frankel - who owns the Troy, Michigan-based store The Antiques Center - has announced her gallery will feature one new designer vignette per month, beginning in March. The scenes will be changed on the first Tuesday of each month for the remainder of the calendar year.

These exhibits will enable local designers to raid the store's inventory to create original displays. The European-themed retailer features primarily English, French and Belgian pieces. Frankel travels to these countries often in order to keep her products up-to-date with international trends in the industry.

Frankel said the project is intended to "showcase design situations that incorporate fine antiques - a unique, one-of-a-kind way to decorate – to inspire and educate our clients."
