Roger Schrenk, an antiques dealer in Alexandria, Va., has created the Interactive Database of Decorative Arts, which offers buyers and dealers of new and antique furnishings a database of more than 5,000 images. Buyers click on photos of furniture details that match those of the chairs, tables, and sideboards that they seek, and they can share the results with dealers everywhere. The site will debut this spring.
