Call her a woman ahead of her time. When Donna Hoffman, owner of Carpetbeggers in Reisterstown, became passionate about antique Chinese furniture last year, little did she know she was onto one of the new key trends in home design. Donna recently took delivery of a marvelous collection of 19th-century hand-painted cabinets and trunks, console tables, armoires, ceramics and loads of other goodies. Now even if you haven’t trekked to the antique stalls in Zhejiang, your living room can look like you did. By appointment, call 410-833-2662 or 410-329-3181.
