Antiques by futura was founded in 1992 by John & Carol Bessone.  For almost 20 years we have been collecting antique furniture and decor from all parts of the US and Europe. In 1994 we started our repair and refinishing shop. Now we have added seat weaving – Cane, Rush, Danish cord and Rattan repair.

         In loving memory of John Bessone sr.(7/3/28 – 1/21/09),  Robert Bessone along with Sister Regina Hartman are keeping the store running, and moving forward with new ways to serve our customers.

         Our 10,000 sq ft. showroom is filled with finely restored and original condition antique furniture and decor. Come on down and take a walk around. If you have any questions, we would be glad to help any way we can.


     Statement by Robert Bessone:   

          Antique furniture is my favorite kind of antique. It can be the center of the room, or just an accent. It can be a functional part of your house, or just something to admire from afar.. It is the base to the overall feel to your home.
The best part is, I love to repair and restore furniture that has seen the bad side of life. It brings me joy to see a piece of furniture, that might otherwise be dumped in a landfill, be brought back to life again for another 40, 50 or even 100 more years.

It’s true what they say. “They just don’t make-em like they used to.”

  1. I’m hoping that you have a set of matching gents/ladies parlor chairs! I’ve looked everywhere.. Burgundy/wine or dusty rose, even victorian green would be just wonderful~

  2. I live in Santee and need one (1) of my Dining Room Table Chair(s) repaired; the upper part slipped out of a slot and needs to be put back in slot and glue,nailed,? What are you days and hours and when may I bring the chair in.

  3. Your Antique Barn is so much fun to wander through. So much history! I wish you had more photos on your website so that I could show my friends what a neat store it is & they should plan a trip there. The old player piano is so pretty. Take Care

    • Thank you Rosie. I’m happy you had such a good experience at our store. I will work on adding more photos to the site. Thank you for the input. I hope to see you in the store again soon. Have a great Holiday season.
