Owners Tracey Shingledecker and Kelly O’Donnell search the European countryside and antique fairs for pieces to add to their collection of 18th and 19th century antiques. Add in a mix of industrial and mid-century modern pieces and what you have is the amazing collection that the two have assembled. Their motto is, “We only buy what we love.”
In 2004, Tracey was building a new home in the Memorial area of Houston. Among design features planned was a dramatic “old” fireplace for the home’s great room. A search locally and regionally was unproductive, which led her to consider a European source. Before she set out for France, Tracey invited her friend, Kelly, to accompany her.
The experience led them to a discussion on creating a business to import European antiques and accessories to Houston, and in 2005 the company named 2Lucy’s was formed. Now they travel to Europe several times a year to find and import antiques and accessories from France, Belgium, Spain, Italy, Sweden and England.
