About Us


After surviving a near fatal car accident, my mother, Ann Cook, decided to pursue her dream of owning an antique and design business. With much encouragement from her family, The A & I Place was established in 1973. Her daughter, Rebeccca Ann, being very much involved and participating in acquisitions for The A & I Place, became a partner with her mother in 1975.

Our inventory comprises a diverse collection of styles and periods of furniture, accessories, lighting, carpets, bed and table linens. We have budget friendly items as well as several pieces with a significant provenance and 17th – 18th century lineage.
