We are What Once Was, a partnership of two visual Artists turned interior designers/vintage curators with career backgrounds in Art History, Architecture and Interior Design. Fueled by our shared passion for design, we have curated and hand-picked some of our selectively sourced vintage decor + home furnishings for you to shop.
At What Once Was, we have a passion (ok, more like an obsession!) with vintage lighting amongst other specialities. In our shop you will find a wide variety of our carefully curated lamps, shades and accessories exhibiting the finest designs and makers of the 20th century.
We have a robust and discerning collection of fine art, rare prints and handmade goods that will be posted to our shop over the next few weeks, check in with us regularly or set up a notification here on Chairish to see our new arrivals.
We bring our goods here to Chairish so that you can add unique objects of interest, color and beauty to any space as you work your interior design magic. Be sure to give us a follow on Chairish so you will be the first to know when our one-of-a-kind hand-picked selections go live.
