AMERICANA’s Idea Home To Be Unveiled Later This Year

americanpicker 065

Using several pieces from AMERICANA’s line of antiques and curiosa, the Idea Home will represent how vintage style can be incorporated to create a cozy family dwelling.  Interior designer and project director Agnetha Monzon says, “this home showcases a unique look in Sweden. It’s a distinct departure from the clean interior trends we have seen in the Nordic region in recent decades.”

The home will feature the family’s collection of textiles and Scandinavian mid-century modern classics which are mixed with AMERICANA vintage home items and industrial pieces from the U.S.A.

“These bold features blend very well with the rest of the decor, creating a timeless look,” says Monzon. “Plus, the mood becomes very personal with an assemblage of items which reflect the family’s character.”

Inspiration from AMERICANA’s Antique Pickers’ Home

americanpicker 085The home of Gay and Mike Crane is not dictated by trends. The interior style of this family residence is rather influenced by the favorite pieces the couple finds at estate sales, flea markets and industrial dumpster diving.

Gay and Mike have been collectors for years, in many states throughout the U.S. Love of picking and collecting has led them to create a cozy family dwelling which is like none of their neighbors.

“We select everyday pieces as much as we do the things which are unique or rare,” says Gay. “It can be an old rusty pulley that we find while digging through a closed factory or an advertising clock that we win at an auction. In either case, we love bringing the history of the piece into our home to give it a distinctive look.”

Gay and Mike now bring their decades-old contacts with the best places and people and years of skilled picking to AMERICANA.  The couple and their extended network of pickers assembles a monthly curated collection, which is sold exclusively at AMERICANA Classic Vintage.

Vintage American Decor Is Hot Trend In Interior Decor

Vintage American Decor Is Hot Trend In Interior Decor

American vintage and heritage-based design is one of the hottest trends in both fashion and interior decor. The democratic, unbound essence of America and pieces that uniquely represent the culture makes it alluring and appropriate for any interior.

Vintage Americana can be represented in a number of ways, either through a decade-based approach (i.e. the 1950s or 1960s), The West, American Automotive, American Sports, The East or West Coast Beach or Campus Life.  Each of these interior themes can be displayed on their own or integrated into an existing look to create a personal style.

Whether it is retro accessories, revived and touched by an edgy flair, or the incredible, ancient look of industrial pieces, vintage Americana gives a modern vibe, with a nod to the 20th century. The relaxed, comfy, simple, and slightly imperfect American style reaches perfection through the cosy, warm, and fresh atmosphere it creates.

To get your vintage American style, visit AMERICANA Classic Vintage at Gamla Brogatan 23 in Stockholm or learn more by going to AmericanaClassicVintage.com.
