Whether you’re looking to style yourself or your home, Merchant House is stocked with only authentic New Orleans treasures, from antique furniture and ceramics to vintage clothing and jewelry.
Like many historic cities that have experienced growth throughout centuries, the Crescent City developed organically. Though it started in a centralized and geographically important setting on an elevated parcel of land in a bend of the Mississippi River, over time the metropolis expanded in all directions.
