….and back to the 2016 theme, as the Lovecraft theme misses the possibility to show tags at a post which makes it less practical to search certain items.
Found it at the VNTG site.
VNTG combines the collections of 300+ European vintage furniture dealers in one overview, making it ideal to browse – compare – shop. The mix of start-up traders and well-established experts makes the offer on VNTG vary from affordable (anonymous) design up to the most iconic pieces.
How does VNTG work?
VNTG works as a referral portal: find the items on VNTG, buy directly from the dealer. To buy an item or ask a question: use the ‘E-mail dealer’ button. VNTG dealers are charged €0,20 for every referral to their website, they don’t pay commission over sales. Therefor, VNTG dealers are able to present their best prices. Registration is not needed for VNTG, only when using the wish list.
In 2008, Pieter and Margriet Akkerman started a website, listing Dutch vintage design professionals, then called ‘RetroStart’. It didn’t take long for professionals outside Holland to show interest in the list as well. The site was converted into a .com domain to welcome international dealers. In 2011, an important feature was launched: ITEMS. The collections of the dealers were now directly visible on RetroStart. From that point, the site grew steadily into being an important starting point for both professionals and the public, with the number of joining dealers reaching 150. The following year was a memorable one, organizing the kick-off edition of trade show Design Icons Amsterdam. The latest changes to the site were made in 2017: major improvements to the usability, launching the wish list and introducing the new name VNTG.
Design Icons Amsterdam
Once a year, VNTG invites the public to come to Design Icons Amsterdam: one of the largest trade shows in Europe for vintage design furniture. 75 professionals, including many VNTG dealers, offer their furniture for sale to professionals and the broad public. Design Icons takes place in the inspiring, industrial venue of former marine engine factory De Kromhouthal, in the North of Amsterdam.
Vintage is not for nothing featured on our Inspiration Page quite some time now.
Thonet chair model Nr. A 403 F
Josef Frank, 1927
MAK Möbel und Holzarbeiten
This is a rare set of salesman sample furniture made by Thonet, the master of bentwood furniture creator of the iconic bentwood chairs that altered the direction of furniture design. We estimate the manufacture date to be in the late 1860s. This four piece set is comprised of love seat, chair, rocking chair and table. The maker’s original paper label stating Thonet, Wien (Vienna) Austria, is still affixed to the underside of the table. The bentwood is in very good condition, retaining its original finish with beautiful patina. The wicker is destroyed on all but the rocker, upon which it is in excellent condition. The label is proof positive that Thonet manufactured this remarkable set. It truly is an exceptional and rare find. We offer it in original as found condition. This set is featured, but unattributed, on page 30 and 31 of the publication Bentwood and Metal Furniture. Our set is attributed as it retains the makers label. Thonet Bent solid beechwood, Cane Doll
