The trends of Antiques and flea markets
Design (or modern antiques)
When we talk about Design we define an era starting in the 20th century, therefore relatively modern, with the use of “new” materials such as metal, bent wood, or ABS, plexiglass or resin. Famous architects and designers such as Le Corbusier or Charlotte Perriand immediately come to mind. For the past twenty years, we have witnessed an explosion in demand for Scandinavian design due to the beauty of teak, the simplicity of forms, and the qualities embodied by the famous enfilades that are as beautiful as they are functional.
The industrial style
The industrial style finds its sources in the world of the factory including study stools, sorting furniture, shelves, work tables, articulated lamps. This furniture is remarkable for its sturdiness, its functionality, its sober colors and its clear lines.
They cover the decorative arts of the XVII°, XVIII° and the first half of the XIX° century including the Napoleon III period. The Classical Antiques essentially embody the French art of living of the 17th and 18th centuries.
The Cabinet of Curiosities
The Cabinet of Curiosities or Wunderkammer in German, which literally means Cabinet of Wonders, includes unusual, rare, surprising, sometimes even disturbing objects that never cease to amaze and surprise us. It can also be souvenirs of distant journeys, ancient ethnic objects linked to ancestral customs and rites, scientific instruments for measuring time such as old clocks with complications or objects of observation such as the microscope, as well as the pictorial representation of these curiosities around which an entire ancient literature revolves.
The photographs using old processes seduce more and more: collodion, calotypes, daguerreotypes… But the old cameras in particular of the beginning of the photography have also their batch of collectors.
The book and the old comic strip
What we are looking for when we talk about old literature, beyond an author or a year of edition, is also the binding work that creates a case for the text and the graphics of the book in question. The binding can use wood, leather, metal and has a particular aesthetic.
Vintage fashion and accessories
Here we talk about vintage in the true sense of the word. Vintage is a very large variety of women’s and men’s clothing as well as shoes. We also add accessories such as scarves, belts, hats, sunglasses and bags.
In the spotlight are lots of napkins, antique tablecloths, linen dish towels, Alsatian kelsch in linen, cotton or half-breed that will delight lovers of tableware, as well as monogrammed linens.
