About Reeves Design + Art

Reeves Antiques is a family owned and operated furniture store and art gallery located in the historic Midtown/Montrose district of Houston, TX. Founded in 1969, we have been providing a quality selection of rare furniture and art for over 50 years. We specialize in 20th century design in both furniture and art with a special eye for Texas artists, both past and present. Our furniture gallery is highly curated and all of our pieces are sources and stored with the utmost care and attention to detail. If there is a specific piece you are looking for, please do not hesitate to get in touch.

What are your current operating times?

Our business hours are 10AM-5PM Monday through Saturday. If you would like to reach us outside our usual operating times please feel free to send us an email at [email protected].

Do you buy or take things on consignment?

Yes! We are happy to take a look at any art or furniture items that you may have available. Please send photos of any pieces to [email protected] and we will let you know if they fit what we are looking for as soon as possible.

If we are interested in moving forward, we will negotiate a price that will be paid to you when the piece sells. We have found over the years that this system works better instead of a percentage based system because we don’t have to constantly call the consignors anytime a customer makes an offer. This makes it easier on everyone! If you have any further questions please feel free to email us or give us a call at 713.523.5577.

I know exactly what I’m looking for, can you help me find it?

Yes! If you have an idea of what you’re looking for, send us some general notes or some inspiration photos and we will be happy to send over what pieces we have available that could fit your needs. Please keep in mind that when it comes to furniture we also make custom pieces so don’t hesitate to send over all of your ideas!

Can the entire Reeves Design + Art collection be viewed online?

Almost! When you have over 2,000 paintings and even more furniture it is a huge undertaking to have everything available online. We have been working tirelessly over the past few years to have the majority of our collection online, but it still takes time to process new pieces so if you don’t see what you are looking for please just let us know!

Will you ship purchases to me? How does shipping work?

Of course! We are always happy to help organize the shipping and delivery of any piece no matter how small or large.

  • Small Pieces: If we feel comfortable shipping a piece through the mail we usually will use UPS or FedEx, depending on the rates and shipping times. Factors such as destination, excessive weight, or fragility may affect the final costs.
  • Larger Items: For larger items, we can also arrange for white glove shipping with our network of carriers. We work with a number of different reliable shippers that allow us to ship throughout the country so please just reach out for a customized shipping quote.
  • International shipping: We are also happy to work with international clients, but at this time all international shipments must be priced out on an individual basis and can vary greatly depending upon size, weight, and destination. Any duty or custom fees imposed on international shipments are the sole responsibility of the recipient.

Are all of your pieces vintage or do you also have new pieces?

We have a mix of both! While many of our pieces are vintage, we also do quite a bit of custom work as well. Many of our furniture pieces that may appear new are actually antiques that have been given new life through reupholstery and/or refinishing. Please keep in mind that we do fully custom pieces as well and we are always open to making exactly the right piece for your space.

We do our best to accurately describe each piece, but please feel free to ask questions or request more images if you’re unclear about the condition of a particular piece. We’re happy to provide whatever information we can to ensure that you’re satisfied with your purchase.

Is it possible for me to take out items on approval if I’m local?

Yes! We understand that art and furniture can be very difficult to make a decision about without seeing them in your space. We just ask you to fill out a short form before taking the piece/s on approval. Generally approvals are lent out for a max of 3 days, but arrangements can be made if more time is needed.

Is it possible for you to place pieces on hold for me?

Yes! We can place pieces on hold for you and set a schedule that works with your needs although our typical on-hold policy is three days. Holds may be placed in store, by telephone, or through email. If we don’t hear from you when the hold is up we will do our best to contact you, but if we receive no response we will assume you are passing and the piece will be made available again.

What are your accepted methods of payment?

We accept all major credit cards, checks, and cash.

What is your layaway policy?

Layaway is available for most items. A down payment of at least 50% is required and the remaining amount must be paid within 30 days.

What is your refund policy?

Returns can be initiated within 7 days of delivery by contacting Reeves Art+Design You are responsible for the cost of return shipping for this item.

Returns are subject to a 25% restocking fee. All pieces must be returned in the condition they were received. Unfortunately we cannot reimburse import duties and taxes for international shipments. We also cannot accept returns for items that have been customized specifically for you.
