Charles and Ray Eames, Le Corbusier, Hans-Agne Jakobsson, Hans J. Wegner and so on, are names we have all heard before and for a good reason. They are the creative minds behind iconic furniture pieces. We qualify them as vintage and antique nowadays. They are not easy to come by. Often imitated while remaining unmatched, finding one of these is a real hunting game.
Vintage and antique e-shops that do the heavy lifting for you
As much as I find that kind of hunt amusing, I don’t have the time, patience and knowledge to really put what it takes into it. But other people do! People that are passionate about design and its history. To the delight of us all, a few of them built great websites where we can look for this rare piece we’ve been longing for.
