"Rejuvenating forlorn furniture with love."

-christina wexler-

Years ago, I took a leap of faith and followed my husband’s desires to move to South Florida. After leaving an amazing career as a video editor for The Today Show in NYC, I found myself confounded in south Florida wallowing in my “lost career”, “hurt ego”, and “new motherhood” self-pity party.

I have always been a garage sale junky and an avid lover of antiques and I found solace whilst driving through our suburban, Floridian landscape scattered with forlorn pieces of furniture from times gone by. And so it started, refurbishing pieces that were found or purchased. I was deriving satisfaction and expressing myself in a creative manner that paralleled something from my previous life.

I started painting and refurbishing from my own home in Boca but within a year developed the need for a larger workplace and better location for clients. In 2014 I rented a small 400 square foot warehouse bay- Bay38 was born. A few years later, frustrated by the high costs of retail space rent, I banded together with another local business woman to share a brick and mortar shop in Boca Raton called Vintage Home Collective which was Bay38 Furniture’s home for three years. We then moved  to a warehouse space located in the urban arts district of Boca Raton, ROCUrban for another three years. Now we have a beautiful, new showroom in Deerfield Beach.

Bay38 features a curated, eclectic collection of antiques & vintage furnishings. We also provide painting services, specializing in milk paint and lacquer.  The shop contains a funky mix of furnishings as well as artwork, lighting, pillows, pocketbooks, jewelry, and accessories from around the world.

The showroom features various genres of vintage furnishings. Elegant, traditional Baroque furniture to the edge and art of Mid Century Modern pieces. Another area showcases Palm Beach or Hollywood Regency pieces with a touch of Beetlejuice!  Combining bright, fun colors with interesting, unexpected patterns and textiles. Post Modernism is making a come back with the trade so we have mixed it up with waterfall tables, lucite and Boho Chic rattan.

We are a proud retailer of The Real Milk Paint Co. Carrying a variety of powdered milk paint colors, waxes and glazes. This line of earth-friendly products is environmentally friendly, non-toxic paint and protects the user from the harmful effects of traditional paint while also being kind to the environment.
