About Us

Michael Donaldson

After spending the last 15 years traveling the world sourcing and designing products for companies like Pottery Barn and Roost, a popular home furnishings line that he co-founded, Michael now has returned to his true passion, antiques, and opened Michael Donaldson Antiques.
Michael Donaldson Antiques specializes in unique British, Dutch and Portuguese Colonial Era furniture and accessories from southern Asia.  Each piece, made from exotic hardwoods like ebony and satinwood reflects a sense of timeless style, refined design and lasting craftsmanship. Michael Donaldson personally selects every piece for the collection from sources in India, Sri Lanka, the Philippines and elsewhere.
He works closely with professional and experienced suppliers throughout Asia, paying close attention to the condition, rarity and origin of each piece. Some pieces require restoration, which is expertly done overseas by teams of dedicated craftsman using traditional techniques and reclaimed wood.
We hope that you enjoy browsing and shopping the site, when in San Francisco, please call for an appointment to see our large size warehouse/showroom on Treasure Island.
