Orange County’s Best Resource for European Antiques


Easily the best resource for beautiful, high-quality European antiques, lighting and home furnishings in Orange County can be found at Summerhill Ltd. Antiques & Design in Old Towne Orange.

Since 1995, Summerhill has been specializing in hard-to-find lighting-- antique chandeliers, sconces, table and floor lamps. All antique and vintage lighting are brought back to life from its original condition, but better. Each vintage piece is refurbished with modern wiring, all new lead crystal and is a one-of-a-kind original. Summerhill also carries a wide range of stock and custom lampshades in a great variety of styles, fabrics and stunning colors.

In today's era of mass-produced home furnishings, Summerhill offers the uniquely romantic allure of hand-made antique furniture. “There are exquisite elements in bench-made antique furniture, the thoughtful proportions, the selection of hardwoods, the decorative elements imagined and executed by master craftsmen,” said Denise Jochec, owner of Summerhill Ltd.  “It is our pleasure and responsibility to preserve these gems, offering them to the next generation to care for them and enjoy their expressive personality.”

They specialize in antique French furniture spanning from Louis XV, Louis XVI and Louis Philippe styles; Twentieth-Century antique and vintage furniture; as well as Antique and vintage Asian furniture. Custom upholstery is also available, with Pindler & Pindler fabrics.  There’s even a selection of vintage barware, mid-century costume jewelry, and accent pieces: handmade boxes, candlesticks, girandoles, vases, umbrella stands, trays, bronze, brass and spelter figures, porcelain birds and dogs, and framed art.

Summerhill will be celebrating the Valentine’s Day season with a special Crown Jewels trunk show starting Tuesday, Feb. 7 through Valentine’s Day. All designs are handmade by women in Orange County using genuine pearls and semi-precious stones. Highest quality at affordable prices. Crown Jewels trunk shows are special events every few months.

Summerhill even offers layaway so that everyone can enjoy the benefit of owning a timeless piece.

Open 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday; 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. Tuesday through Saturday; noon to 5 p.m. Sunday.
