So Much More Than a – Home Improvement Store
In 1997, Susan Alexander and Laurie Marchant opened the doors of Antiquity Workshop furniture restoration and repair shop and the seed of what was to become Alexander Marchant. These long-time friends and business partners have grown their business from a single Austin-based showroom to three bustling showrooms over the past 20 years. Alexander Marchant represents a curated selection of custom decorative hardware alongside a wide range of plumbing fixtures, specialty lighting, furniture pieces, surface slab and tile, and bath accessories.
Recognizing the growth opportunities South to San Antonio and along the I-10 corridor, Alexander Marchant opened a second location in the established Olmos Park shopping district in 2015. This showroom sets a gentle pace for lingering shoppers while developing its own base for those in the design and build industry. This centrally located showroom also services the Houston area along with Boerne and the Hill Country.
Each showroom is constantly evolving to reflect and set current trends in luxury bath and decorative hardware and our San Antonio showroom has been no stranger to evolution. Starting out as an outpost for appointment-only client meetings, our Olmos Park showroom has developed into a richly stocked resource for — and true reflection of — the discerning tastes of the San Antonio client. This showroom boasts a shop-in-shop Waterworks boutique, handsome lighting from Julien Chichester and Ralph Lauren by Visual Comfort, tile inspiration from Mosaique Surface, cabinet and door hardware ranging from Designer Doorware to Frank Allart… and everything in between.
Our expansive website not only offers the ease of shopping from home, but often highlights the projects of our talented trade partners through our in-house blog, Instagram and Pinterest. Join in the conversation by following us at the links below.
Additionally, we value our relationships with trade partners and a community of creative professionals. Alexander Marchant continues to draw inspiration from working directly with the trade. In turn, we seek to offer timeless door hardware, luxury bath accessories and the perfect kitchen faucet that not only fills the design trends of today but sets the standard for what is to come. Our trade partners have come to rely on us to introduce new trends like knurled knobs from edgy British brand Buster & Punch or unlacquered brass finishes for plumbing and cabinet pulls in both bath and kitchen.
We welcome the San Antonio creative community to join us for community-building events such as our annual Fiesta luncheon, continuing education classes with our world-class vendors and lunch & learns for you and your staff.
In a continued effort to broaden our benefit offerings, Alexander Marchant will be announcing its new Trade Program in 2020… stay tuned!
