We focus on sourcing excellent examples of 20th century design and craftsmanship. This typically includes furniture, lighting and accessories, in addition to smaller items such as porcelain, glass and much more created across the central and eastern European territories in the last century. Our aim is to source over a long-term from the cream of European production, mostly from the regions of Central and Western Europe. Our main focus is on the former Czechoslovakia, Austria, Italy, Germany and Holland, but we also appreciate quality production from the Nordic countries, as well as French craftmanship. Our offer represents the world’s greatest leaders of 20th century design, such as Josef Hoffmann, Gustav Siegel, Marcel Breuer, Ludwig Mies van der Rohe, Halabala, Florence Knoll, Mart Stam and many more. Let us be your guide to this rich source of quality and excellent value items.
We appreciate that information about condition enables you to make an informed decision about the items you may wish to purchase. To assist you in this, we aim to offer objects divided into three different categories: The first category are items that have been expertly restored, which therefore can be directly offered for sale in retail stores with little or no turnaround time after they are shipped to you. The second category consists of items that are not restored, but they are in very good or even almost perfect condition despite their age. The third category consists of items, displaying evident traces of age and use, and/or may show signs of damage in any way. Rest assured that any such damage is clearly defined in the description of the offer. You can also use the function of our website to view several detailed photographs of the offered object using a zoom option, which helps to obtain an absolute idea of the real state of the subject. Due to the excellent resolution of the pictures, this even enables you to remotely inspect the upholstery including the quality of the stitching. This function ensures you to be in no doubt about the quality and condition of the items on offer.
Our business model is to become a key supplier of specialist designers, dealers and major global retailers with designer furniture and antiquities from the 20th century. For this reason, we prefer regular bulk sale in large quantities, fulfilled through container transportation. This means that designers or traders from around the world can buy in bulk at prices significantly lower than the conventional retail or auction market, providing high margins per item. We believe that this will result in a mutually advantageous business relationship for both parties to trade.
Minimum volume of purchased goods is not set. If you are interested in INDIVIDUAL ITEMS, please make an order at our website or send us an email specifying the item/s that you are interested in and we will get back to you with a price and a calculation of international shipping costs. In case of Bulk orders you may qualify for an attractive discounts.
We aim to fulfil orders as promptly as possible. Typically, after picking of orders, delivery within the EU and other countries in Europe is typically up to 5-10 days. Delivery to the United States typically takes 3-4 weeks order completion. Delivery within Asia or Australia typically takes 5-6 weeks.
We understand that it is of the utmost importance for purchased goods to arrive promptly, undamaged, and as described. To this end, goods are expertly packed utilising specialist materials, taking all reasonable steps to ensure that the possibility of damage can be eliminated. We are committed to ensuring the transportation of goods by experienced and professional international and domestic shipping companies. In the unlikely event that goods arrive damaged and/or do not match the description and photos on the Web, it is necessary to provide evidence of the damaged goods in detail and apply for a damaged goods claim. Where possible, we would also seek to source an option of a replacement item, although this will not always be possible due to the often unique nature of the items we offer for sale.
