Are you looking for that perfect something, but you’re just not quite sure what that is? Or perhaps you’ve just moved into a new residence and need to fill that new space.

Well, I’ve got just the place for you — Upscale Furniture Consignment Gallery, where you’ll find everything from an antique, one-of-a-kind settee and a Brazilian contemporary glass-and-leather dining set to mirrors that visually enlarge your space. They have it all and more.

Upon entering Upscale Furniture Consignment Gallery, you’re treated to the sweet smell of vanilla beans or mistletoe, or maybe even coconut lime, the aroma from soy candles; fragrant, yet clean and healthy for the environment.

At the door, you are greeted by Nigel, the five-foot English butler steadfastly keeping watch. Once inside, you will be amazed at the selection of fine vintage and antique furniture, exclusive porcelains and brilliant art, much of it from up-and-coming local artists.

Focusing on quality pieces from high-end consignors that have little or no wear gives the store the feel of a museum. A 19th century Swiss Mermod Freres music box plays delicate melodies and proudly displays its original program. A turn of the century phonograph by none other than Thomas Alva Edison sits atop a carved console table with its hand-painted morning glory horn.

The proprietor of Upscale Furniture Consignment Gallery is Rita Schwartz and she is as unique as her extraordinary gallery. She not only holds down the fort at 8845 SW 132nd St., behind the Falls Shopping Center, she has also been appointed sponsorship chair for the inaugural Pinecrest Relay for Life for the American Cancer Society.

And if that isn’t enough to keep Schwartz busy, in her spare time she works with Paws4You and helps rescue abandoned or homeless dogs. Schwartz is an advocate for life and believes that every dog should have a loving home. She also regularly solicits funds for the pet rescue charities and helps plan benefit events such as the recent Pawtini Pawty business social networking event at the Biltmore Hotel in Coral Gables.

The inventory at Upscale Furniture Consignment Gallery is constantly changing, with new pieces arriving daily and others leaving just as quickly. The gallery is open Monday through Friday from 10:30 a.m. to 6 p.m. and Saturday and Sunday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.
