Antique furniture restoration and sales
Mark Strange learned everything he knows about lamps from Robert Fonville, Greenville’s original illuminati.
“Most of the people reading this have a lamp in their home made by Robert,” he says. “Everything he learned over his 30 years he gave to me.”
Many readers also likely have a piece of furniture in their home built or restored by Trey Sherman or his father, Tommy, who opened Greystone Antiques in 1972 and handed it down to his son in 1998.
“I’ve dealt with antiques my whole life,” Trey says. “Where my experience and knowledge really come into play is when I can share the history of a piece someone brings me and advise the best way to preserve its value and integrity. Refinishing is not always the answer.”\
Mark worked for several years at Harrison Lighting, and when he learned of the owners’ plans to close up shop he saw an opportunity and brought his bright idea to Trey. The two decided to bring together services Greenville’s discerning customers have come to rely on under one roof.
Long considered Greenville’s most knowledgeable source for antique furniture and restoration, Greystone is now also the destination for those seeking the perfect shade, rewiring of a favorite lamp or a custom build from a treasured memento.
