Located in the heart of Old Town, Patina is a great resource for finding unique, one-of-a-kind pieces, and quality furniture sourced from all over the US and Europe. Patina’s namesake comes from owners Amanda Mertins’ and Kimberly Weiler’s belief that every well collected home should include some unique pieces with the patina of age. In addition to vintage pieces, Patina offers a well-curated collection of traditional and contemporary for a discerning clientele.

In addition to their extensive collection of vintage pieces, Patina partners with Wesley Hall to offer an extensive collection of designer fabrics and trims for custom upholstered furniture. This partnership offers customers the ability to create unique furniture that is all their own.
