So how exactly to start searching for something unique? The easiest way is to figure out designer names behind those iconic designs you see all over Instagram or Pinterest. For true modernists: Verner Panton, Milo Baughman, Le Corbusier, Mies van der Rohe, Warren Platner, Marcel Breuer. For mid-century classics (mostly Scandinavian): Eero Saarinen, Ray and Charles Eames, Hand Wegner, Kai Kristiansen, Stilnovo, Charlotte Perriand, Arne Jacobsen, Finn Juhl, Borge Mogensen, Poul Henningsen, Jean Prouve. For minimalists-at-heart: Isamu Noguchi, Arne Norell, Alvar Aalto, Kaare Klint, Gio Ponti. For those with unlimited budget (or just searching for a true eye-candy): Vladimir Kagan, Vincenzo de Cotiis, Pierre Jeanneret, Pierre Yovanovitch, Pierre Augustin Rose. Try searching for those names in vintage sites (such as Pamono, Vinterior, 1stdibs, etc) or ebay and see if you find something you like - soon enough, you'll know exactly what style is close to your heart and how to look for a more affordable alternative.

Such a great list, Indre! Thank you for sharing ♥️
Here’s another tip - if you’re looking for a specific piece of furniture, search for ir in its country of origin. So, for example, if it’s a Minotti sofa you’re after, try checking, if it’s a set of Hans Wegner wishbone chairs, your best bet is sourcing it in Denmark. Oh, and local classifieds sites are pure gold - in particular, if you’re into midcentury classics of Wegner, Poul Henningsen, Kai Kristiansen and so on. Translate the whole website with google translate ans search away!

I highly recommend Indre! She is super knowledgable and nice + has a great overview of the latest trends in vintage and modern furniture!
Indrė was a knowledgeable, friendly, curious human. She already knew a lot about the subject, and was keen to learn more about the art market and contemporary art. It was a pleasure to meet her, discover some parallels between her field and mine, and I hope to continue our conversation further.
