elisabethUNDjohannes poetic living
Personal memories cabinets? 100% GDR fifties cocktail chairs? French shabby chic furniture from the Provence? Woodcarved seats from at least a century old? Still life settings? Wunderkammer styling? Old fashioned kitchen sideboards? Dutch antiques?
Since I was a child I (Elisabeth) have an indomitable passion for everything that is old, from vintage or antique furniture to ancient houses. I like, for example, the Japanese wabi sabi or the shabby chic style. And what about the Swedisch Gustavian style or the French ‘laissez faire style’…? So it won’t surprise you that we bought an antique countryhouse about 8 years ago in an unknown wine area in formal eastern Germany. That place we renovate room for room and we’re not in a hurry. And yes, all those rooms need their own device …
During our journeys throughout Europe, searching for specific objects to decorate our countryhome with, we encounter many beautiful things. We’re looking for furniture that stands out for its design, sometimes as an eye-catcher and sometimes just because they are a ‘silent’ appearance. We love furniture that could tell us a thousand stories. Our collection grows and grows. And because we can not keep all of our finds for ourselves, we decided to make other people happy with our collection.
We’re interior nomads, traveling around Europe to buy and sell antique & vintage furniture, decoration and interior objects. We love the poetry of beautiful old things. Things that can tell a thousand stories. Like our antique holiday countryhouse in Saale-Unstrut, a secret wine region in the Leipzig area (Germany).
