Goodnight Raleigh - a look at the art, architecture, history, and people of the city at night

Small Business Spotlight: William-Cozart, Inc.

Located deep in the heart of the Warehouse District, William-Cozart is a family-run antique store that has been a cornerstone of downtown Raleigh retail for 30 years.

They specialize in various flavors of Asian art and antiques. Items available in the catalog include Japanese woodblock prints, ceramics, paintings, and metal work. They also carry a diverse selection of American and European antiques as well.

I don’t know the history of the two buildings they occupy, but I was incredibly intrigued by the building-within-a-building as shown in the image above. I liked the way it was incorporated into the presentation of the artwork they offer.

To find out more about the types of art and antiques that are offered, please be sure to check out their online catalog.
