To Celebrate Chinese New Year The Antiques Diva™ & Co announces Asia antiques buying and sourcing services in 6 countries: Thailand, Myanmar, Laos, Vietnam, Cambodia and Indonesia
January 28, 2017: The Antiques Diva & Co CEO Toma Clark Haines is excited to announce Asia Antiques Buying Tours for tourists and trade professionals to 6 countries in Asia, in addition to the current 8 countries in Europe: “As the largest company in Europe offering one on one customized antique buying tours, launching in Asia was the logical next step. Our goal is to provide a turnkey solution for buyers interested in global sourcing. Whether you’re looking to buy one specific piece or wanting to fill an entire container, our Asian antique buying guides share their vast knowledge of secret sources to take you to all the right places. AD&CO is the only global antiques touring company offering one-stop, turnkey antiques shopping services: from personally choreographing your private buying tour to translating, negotiating and shipping antiques.”
Modern interior design is all about the global mix. The Antiques Diva offers a unique global perspective to integrate Asian and European antiques for a fresh, modern look.

AD&CO Asia Antiques Services
Asia Antiques Buying Tours: The Antiques Diva offers private, custom antiques buying tours to 6 countries in Asia under the leadership of our local, expert antique guides. CEO Toma Clark Haines has assembled a team of local antiques experts including Chief Asian Diva Guide Angela Somwaiya, a Chicagoan native who has lived in Bangkok more than 2 decades. She runs one of the most respected antiques shops in Thailand, Paul’s Antiques, and has over 20 years expertise sourcing Asian antiques. Clients coming on buying tours get the unique advantage of sourcing in the same venues where she stocks her store. Angela is also an expert guide to sourcing Asian bespoke furniture makers.
AD&CO trade tours are custom curated for interior designers, antiques dealers, furniture manufacturers, landscape designers and architects; customized design inspiration tours and shopping tours are also available to the public. Our Antiques Tours Guides will custom plan an Asian antiques buying tour for you whether you’re looking to purchase antique furniture, textiles, decorative accessories, handicrafts and artisanal creations or architectural salvage. We will also help maximize your time and money by translating and negotiating on your behalf, and finally liaising you with an international shipper.
The time for Asian antiques is now: they mix so well and lend a fresh, modern note to any decor. My designs are never defined by any one era, style or approach. I draw from my own experiences, travels and global insight.
~ Robert Passal, Award Winning Top 20 Interior Designer
Asia Antique Sourcing Services: When you’re too busy to travel, The Antiques Diva offers antiques sourcing and buying services in Asia. The best antiques sources are not online. You have to go out into the field to find them. Based on your requirements, AD&CO will assemble a lookbook of pieces that meet your specifications and budget. After your approval, we will purchase, complete all paperwork and coordinate your shipment.
I just returned from a 3 country Antiques Diva Design Inspiration Tour: Thailand, Indonesia and Cambodia. This is the new frontier for sourcing antiques. No one else is doing what The Antiques Diva & Co does; where you can source both Asian and European antiques to create a global chic lifestyle.
