20-50’s heaven

If you are a lover of restored early to mid 1900’s art deco, you have to take a look at the pieces in Fins de Siecles. Nicholas Vanderbeck and Michele Van Hove curate pieces to sell in their Eixample show room from mostly France and Italy. Find your special piece here – http://www.finsdesiecles-artdeco.com/es/

The humble sideboard

The tradition of wearing ‘sunday bests’ and serving tea in fine china for esteemed guests appears to been traded in for a long brunch with friends at your favourite cafe (don’t get me wrong, I love brunch!) but with current trends reaching for retro wooden vintage – the humble side board  or ‘almacenaje’ in Spanish has been revamped – reborn. Traditionally, used to hold silverware the side board quickly becoming must have statement piece. Amongst my favs –  the AURA collection by designers Angel Marti & Enrique Delamo.

EL RECIBIDOR – Fine Vintage!

When a place celebrates ‘Mad Men Day’ my mind automatically wanders into a room of dense cigar smoke, wooden sideboards,  the splash colour of the ticking orange or emerald clock! Allow your mind to go there.  El Recibidor (The Hall in English) is all this, minus the cigar smoke.

The vintage specialist store extend passion for antique finds to sharing individual stories of their collections. A house should be a story map of life whether it your own or others and I love that George, Antonio and Jorge, the founders of El Recibidor, invite us to learn and appreciate the history of each individualised piece.

There is such incredible styling genius behind this work it’s hard to pick a few but here are favourites – for more http://www.elrecibidor.com/es/home or follow on Instagram @elrecibidor
