I'm a vintage furniture addict, fourth generation collector and second generation seller, obsessively working to source a mix of beautiful, unique, and sometimes iconic 19th and 20th century pieces.
I love the sculptural, clean lines of Mid-century Modern; the glamour of Hollywood Regency; the coziness of French Country and painted Swedish pieces; the sheer, eye-popping beauty of antique Italian; and the rich textures and patinas of anything rustic.
I love homes with soul and pieces with history.
Oh, and the hot blonde in the mustard sweater? That would be my mom (and treasure-hunting road companion), circa 1964.
The child of artist parents, my love of and deep appreciation for beautiful things and their histories can be traced back to my great-grandmother, author Ellouise Baker Larsen, whose extensive collection -- and one of the most encyclopedic ever achieved by an individual -- of Staffordshire China is housed at the Smithsonian/National Museum of American History.
The ̶h̶o̶a̶r̶d̶e̶r̶ collector gene is strong.
That being said, I have many, many pieces left to photograph -- as soon as the (seemingly endless) Montana winter departs and the temperature rises, expect to see more additions, including pieces from:
- Robsjohn Gibbings
- Joseph Andre Motte
- Hans Olsen
- Vladimir Kagan
- Charles Hollis Jones
- Warren Snodgrass
- Philippe Starck
