Welcome to Abilis Export
Antiques & Design Export
| From Provence, with Love
Based in Provence, France, Abilis Export provides international B2B companies with an end-to-end service experience: from organising buying trips or sourcing and purchasing antiques and design pieces on our customers behalf through to overseeing their transportation and safe worldwide delivery.
Abilis Export was founded in 1995 and has recently been rejuvenated by a new team of conscientious, competent and dynamic connoisseurs of antiques, vintage pieces and unique decorative accessories.
Abilis Export was taken over in 2018 by Emmanuel Peltier and Sarah Carrière-Chardon after the retirement of Gabrielle et Michel Barma, the company’s founders. Emmanuel and Sarah have known each other for a long time and have highly complementary skill sets, as well as extensive international experience.
