A 21st Century Grand Tourist

We love this great example of a stunning home designed around a collection of art and antiques, including original vintage posters:

“Edward’s collection of vintage posters (Fritz Lang’s Metropolis broods over the hall) may have been overpowering but Philippa was careful to choose gutsy 1940s antiques with enough presence to match the boldness of the Deco artworks…”

Read the full article in the October 2013 issue of Homes & Gardens magazine, pages 72 to 81.

Posters are a great way to add colour and an individually unique statement to any room of the home or office, including a cinema room, child’s playroom and holiday retreat, and they can be suited to the size and budget as required. The variety of subjects and styles in poster design make them adaptable to any interior design, from contemporary to traditional, and perfect as a gift. Original vintage posters are also highly collectible and are recognised as a sound art investment. As antique and vintage items, they are also eco-friendly.

AntikBar is a London-based online business specialising in original vintage posters covering a variety of subjects – travel, advertising, sport, cinema, war and propaganda – from around the world, mainly from the late 1800s to 1970s. We attend fairs and events throughout the year and offer worldwide delivery, collection advice, consultancy and search on demand services for collectors, individual clients and interior designers. We will be at the next Decorative Fair from 1-6 October and at the Spirit of Christmas Fair from 5-10 November; further information on these events are listed on our News & Events page.
