I will go with B on this one. "all things antique" is perfectly fine. "is bringing" is needed at end because it is "a market" which is bring back "the the chaise lounge, the overstuffed sofa, and the claw-footed bathtub", not "the bygone styles of furniture and fixtures "

have grown vs has grown --> the latter is the correct tense since fascination is singular
(A) and (D) are out

bring vs bringing --> the latter is correct. Use the continuous tense since the activity is ongoing.

(B) for me

thanks Wilfred, but I could not understand the sentence & its formation well, for example:all things antique? and what is the subject exactly?
Best regards

The subject should be America's fascination, and this goes with the 'has grown'. The object would be the market and it goes with 'bringing'.

'all things antique' is perfectly fine, as Paul puts it. It's a figure of speech that is commonly used.
