Anne & Edward Carty, fraternal twins, are third generation Santa Barbara natives who have long been exposed to the rarefied estates in the lush California coastal community that has always been home to generations of some of America's greatest fortunes. With a mother who is the preeminent antique appraiser in the area, and an artist father, also a collector, the twins spent their early years in Florence Italy where they learned the language and were educated in the brilliance of that country's history in art, architecture and fine furniture. In 1989 Anne and Edward opened their antique shop and have offered the finest in local estate pieces, furniture and decorative arts ever since.
