Laurent Gouon is the owner and founder of Lolo French Antiques et More. Lolo, as he is affectionately known, has the French sense of joie de vivre. He puts the joy of living into every aspect of his life, whether furniture, food, family, or folly. His venture into the world of antiques was inspired by his father and this has been his passion since the early 2000s. He travels and buys from all over France, searching through markets and fairs, manors and chateaus, dimly lit warehouses, and backstreet alleys lined with family-owned shops, for one-of-a-kind finds for the home.

For Lolo French Antiques, it is not just a matter of shopping in Franch and then displaying these items back on US soil. Once the treasure trove of stately antiques, quaint and rare objets d’art, and flea market brocante have arrived from the warehouse in France, Lolo begins the process of restoring each piece with great care and attention to detail. It is his talent and expertise in fine furniture repair, restoration, and refinishing that distinguishes him from other antique dealers in the Birmingham area, and makes this store one that any antique aficionado will be keen to visit.

Lolo French Antiques has a delightful and vast inventory of French and European antiques. This includes Venetian chandeliers, trumeau mirrors that Lolo designs and makes by hand, 18th century period pieces, Art Deco items, Mid-Century modern finds, and new, French-inspired decor.

Fans of French antiques that are local to the Birmingham, Alabama area would do well to sign up to the mailing list of Lolo French Antiques. An announcement is made each time a new shipment arrives from France, so recipients of this news can make a bee-line to the antique store to check out the wares. Lolo is also more than happy to keep an eye out for certain antiques and collectibles, so keen collectors should definitely pop in for a chat.

"Reserving flights 8 to 9 months in advance helps me manage my airfare expenses. Even in the best of times, many of the markets I follow in France don't publish their plans that far in advance. Fleamapket provides the newest information, well before I can find it online."
Nicolas Martin
