As the trend in Bangkok continues towards the new, vintage quality furniture gets harder and harder to find, which is a pity, given the wonderful craft history of the region. Fortunately, Paul's Antiques steps in to fill a necessary void. Specializing in British colonial period pieces, especially from Burma, Paul's has the city's hardwood niche, as it has refinished teak gems ranging from 50 to 100 years old, all made with incredible attention to detail and quality.

Carpenters at Paul's restore and refinish old wooden furniture, often adding modern finishes and creative furnishing touches such as Art Deco display cabinets to create fashionable "old new" looks. Some of Bangkok's retro boutique hotels like the Eugenia or Cabochon have featured Paul's Antiques furniture as part of the period decor, and even productions such as the Siam Opera have used the shop's exquisitely crafted pieces in their performances.

Paul's is open from Monday to Saturday from 9:30 to 6 and by appointment on Sundays.
