Tudor Antiques

Dear Diva Readers,

Tudor Antiques Tudor Period

A fun fact many of you may not know about me is that my university degree is in English literature with a history minor – I’ve always been fascinated with history and how life, art and culture interact. Perhaps my interest in antiques began because I view decorative objects from the past as giving me the opportunity to live with history – merging the past and present

My favorite time period in both literature (and history) is the Tudor period with Shakespeare, and Henry VII, Ann Boleyn, not to mention Elizabeth the First. It’s such rich period that it’s no surprise it was also an important time for interior design and furniture. It was during this span of time that England saw economic growth, geographical expanse, and much optimism which lead to wealthy home owners worrying less about money and war and turning their concerns to those of creature comforts at home. Plus as a sea faring nation England was gathering decor ideas from around the globe opening their collective eyes as a result of travel.

Prior to this period, Medieval and Gothic styles prevailed and the majority of great homes were designed to keep intruders out. However during the early Tudor times, with King Henry VIII on the throne, a boom in housing construction occurred, causing an increase in furniture production as well. As glass became a status symbol, wealthy home owners added many windows to their houses and also turned their eyes to the interiors, making subtle changes that reflected the times.

One of my favorite period Tudor houses – a cottage really – is Anne Hathaway’s Cottage near Stratford upon Avon. A brick building with half-timbering, a thatched roof and a delightful garden, this picture-perfect country house remains in almost the exact state as it was when Shakespeare won the hand of his wife, Anne.

Early Tudor furniture was not much different from its Gothic predecessors. Most of the population lived in modest homes and didn’t have much furniture at all. Even the upper class, who lived in large houses typically only had the basics— beds, tables, coffers, stools, and benches. It was common at the time for people to sit on stools and benches without backs, as chairs were reserved for the owner of the home, thus signifying his importance.

Tudor Antiques The Victoria and Albert Museum in London

While on a recent trip to England meeting Traditional Home Magazines for a Press Tour I found myself unexpectedly with some free time one afternoon – and I went to one of my favorite places in London – The Victoria and Albert Museum. If you haven’t been – consider it a DIVA MUST GO!!! The V&A’s collections cover a vast number of design styles, from the Romanesque art and architecture of the Middle Ages, to the 20th century’s radical Postmodernism exploring the trends, themes and revolutions in design over the centuries. Here I was able to walk through the ages exploring furniture throughout time seeing fabulous museum worthy examples from this period.

Tudor Antiques Oak Tudor Piece

Most Tudor furniture pieces were made of oak and were bulky in design. There were no delicate silhouettes or airy carvings, but rather heavy imposing pieces that were often uncomfortable, save for an embroidered cushion to perch on. The great rooms of large homes were often softened by hanging tapestries on the cold stone walls and using carpets on the chilly floors. However as time went on, it became fashionable to install wood paneling on the walls. When benches and chests were placed against the walls, those sitting on them could lean back against the paneling, perhaps leading to the idea of a free standing bench with a back attached—or what we think of as a sofa or settee today.

Tudor Antiques wood panel Tudor periodThe 16th century saw many cultural developments in fashion, the arts, theatre, architecture, and furniture design. Influence of the Italian Renaissance can be seen when furniture makers began incorporating more ornamentation and carvings into pieces. As the period progressed, upholstered furniture, wallpaper, and carpets became more and more popular. However most pieces from the Tudor period remained large, imposing, and reminiscent of Medieval style.

Today when shopping for antiques – while of course you can still buy period pieces if you know where to go and are willing to pay the price – most “Tudor antiques” you see on the market today are “reproductions” from the 19th C. Still antique – they are “style of” antiques – not period antiques. During the 19th century, Tudor style had a huge revival. One of the things interior designers comment upon about the Tudor revival pieces they buy is that they actually work well in new homes due to their massive size!

Intaglios

Dear Diva Readers,
Intaglios collection

When clients come on an Antiques Diva Buying Tour, they often want to purchase items that will add to a collection and pieces that they can decorate their homes with. Whether we’re whisking them from shop to shop or perusing an outdoor flea market, we often come across intaglios in Italy as well as France and Belgium – they can be a wonderful collector’s item as well as decorative!

Intaglios ring

Intaglios Gold ring

While they can be made in a variety of materials—including plastic— the most popular antique intaglios are fashioned from stone, coral, shell, fine metals, and glass. They were created when artists carved down into the material to hollow out a recessed image. Just as form meets function with many antiques, intaglios once served a practical purpose. When brushed with wax or ink, the intaglio was used as a seal, identifying the sender of a letter or document.

Intaglios necklace

Intaglios seal

In ancient times, intaglios were made from gems. The word “glyptic” refers to the art of carving small gem stones which could be mounted in rings. When a letter was being sent, the sender would dip their glyptic-intaglio in wax, acting as a distinctive personal signature once the wax hardened. A finely carved intaglio meant that forgery would be more difficult. The recessed cut surfaces of these intaglio gems are often very well preserved and reveal that artificial methods such as heat, sugar, and dyes were used to achieve varying colors in the gemstones.

Intaglio Mens Ring

Intaglios have been used for thousands of years and in ancient cultures of Egypt, Mesopotamia, Greece, and Rome. In the 8th and 7th centuries BC, carved gems in Greece often depicted geometric animal poses. By the 6th century BC, gem carvings incorporated more human and divine figures, always very detailed. In the 5th century relief carvings—similar to cameos– became popular and people began wearing them as jewelry. However intaglios have had many renaissances throughout the world, and are often associated with Italy, France, and England. From the 14th century to the early 1900’s intaglios were widely used through Europe. Many of the collections found today have been mounted and framed and are used as decorative items.

Intaglios mounted and framed

Today intaglios can be used as decoration or even to make one-of-a-kind jewelry pieces. However you choose to use them, owning a piece of history is exhilarating! The story behind each unique intaglio shows just how fascinating antiques can be. If you would like information on taking an Antiques Diva Buying Tour, email us at info@antiquesdiva.com.

Please Be Seated

Dear Diva Readers,

Confession… Before my house fire I had an addiction. Chairs. I bought them. In all shapes and sizes. Little ones. Big ones. Ones that couldn’t be sat in…. that were just for decor. You might say… I had a problem. Nothing like a house fire to do a bit of er… “Spring Cleaning”… And while I might have had a problem with never meeting a chair I didn’t like… Yes. I admit it. I was a Chair-o-Holic….. The chair is an absolutely indispensable piece of furniture that has been a part of human culture for thousands of years! I’m certain even the cave women collected them. Used for comfort or ceremony, a study of chairs and their evolution reveals much about varying cultures and time periods.

Please Be Seated

I love nothing more than pulling up a… what else… chair and reading a good book… So I was delighted when I recently received an advance copy of Please Be Seated: Historic Chairs and The Tales They Tell by Gun Handberg Bjerkander. The author has dedicated much of her life to art and antiques as a museum curator, lecturer, columnist, and auctioneer. After much success in the author’s native home of Sweden, the book has been translated into English! Watch out Stieg Larsson… The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo is getting some serious competition on the international book scene!

Please Be Seated pair of antique chairs

The book recounts the tales of 17 chairs and the memories of the often fascinating lives they have led and of the people who have lived with them. From the 17th century to present day, Bjerkander tells the tales of these chairs with insight, wit, great affection, and a slight Scandinavian slant. Anyone with a keen interest in antiques will appreciate the stories in this book as they are informative and fun to read. Chairs from seven different countries are explored varying from doll’s house miniatures to the majestic silver throne. I find it fascinating to observe how the chair morphed over time to suit different needs and to keep up with cultural norms. Looking at how the growing importance of comfort in the 20th century changed the shape and material of chairs, and comparing that to the earlier upright style of chairs gives one an interesting perspective into daily life of people from each era.

Please Be Seated modern Bellini's Chairs

However, as with any antique, it’s not just the original period of the chairs that interest me. It’s the story of the chairs and how they came to be where they are now. Who owned them? Were they sold, passed down through generations, cast off and rediscovered in a rubbish heap? These are the stories that Bjerkander explores and shares with readers. To me, that’s what gives antiques and this book so much charm!

Do you have any favorite chairs? If so, let me know in the comments or head over to my Facebook page and share photos of them with me!

Until next time,

Vintage Home by Judith Miller

Dear Diva Readers,

Vintage finds are dominating the “antiques” market place… with more and more clients seeking vintage pieces instead of period antiques. From mid-century modern to retro and beyond, there are so many stylish pieces that can enhance a home. My design philosophy has always been to mix antiques, vintage pieces, and modern objects for the ideal finished product. That’s why I’m so excited the antiques expert—and AD&Co friend— Judith Miller http://www.millersantiquesguide.com has come out with a new book called Vintage Home.

Vintage Home by Judith Miller book

Vintage Home by Judith Miller in coffee table

Miller has written over 100 books, innumerable articles, and is a regular guest on several television and radio shows – I may be The Antiques Diva – but Judith is unquestionably The Queen of Antiques. While I’m constantly adding her reference books which often catalogue antique furniture and objects to my personal library, this new addition showcases the best of 20th Century furniture and design and is a style guide which focuses on vintage and retro furniture. With a brief history of the Modernist movement, the book then looks at the Art Deco period, followed by the New Look & New Moderns, and finally finishing with a comprehensive directory of designers, makers, and suppliers, Judith does what she does best – She demystifies “antiques” and removes stuffy traditional rules from the genre making this “vintage” movement accessible to antiquers helping us understand no matter the age their relevance.

In the book, Miller highlights famous designers like Eames and Murano, and also sheds light on lesser known 20th Century designers. It’s a fantastic reference book for collectors and a visual feast for interior design lovers. For those looking to start or expand a vintage furniture collection, this is the book to read before heading to the auction house or buying online. It’s also a nice guide for the less serious buyer, as it covers mass-produced and highly popular designs that may be considered kitsch and not so costly, but still highly sought after.

Vintage Home by Judith Miller mix of vintage and retro

I’ve seen a big trend in the last year with younger clients wanting to source vintage pieces as well as antiques. Mixing in vintage and retro pieces, be it a mid-century chandelier or a funky plastic chair is what interior designers are doing today and Vintage Home provides inspiration with its gorgeous photos as well as information on specific styles and pieces. Incorporating vintage pieces into the home can be tricky, but the homes featured in this book show how to tastefully add in vintage touches for the way we live now.

If you’re a design fanatic like me, or simply interested in vintage furniture, I recommend adding Vintage Home to your library. It’s a great way to learn about what I think is the next big thing in interiors and antiques, allowing you to know about the styles, designers, and makers of vintage and retro pieces.

Until next time,

2016 Trend Forecast

Dear Diva Readers,

2016 Trend Forecast by Toma Clark Haines

As we begin 2016, I’ve been asked what I think the design trends will be this year. I believe that more consumers will say, “Forget the trend,” and opt for one-of-a-kind finds that reflect their personalities. Antiques and hand-made goods will dominate the interior design scene allowing consumers to express their unique sense of style.

2016 Trend Forecast Sculptures

2016 Trend Forecast Ettore-Sottsass

Mid-century modern a la Don Draper has been done to death. In its place, vintage finds from the 1980’s are coming back to the future and challenging the status quo. Bold Italian designers such as Ettore Sottsass and Michele De Lucchi’s shocking geometric motifs are reappearing on furniture, textiles, tabletop decor, ceramics and even jewelry.

2016 Trend Forecast colorful furniture

Clients are clamoring for color. Fearless color and form combine in a display of zany artistry. The more intense the better! Fuchsia, orange, and azure rule the scene. While we’ve always seen upholstered pieces get facelifts with color, case goods are now being lacquered in bright hues. Like a handkerchief peeking from a tailored jacket, interiors of drawers and cabinets are being given shocking flashes of color—sort of like the classic mullet— it’s all business on the outside but a party on the inside.

2016 Trend Forecast Mantiques

“Mantiques,” Grand Tour, and country house accessories are hot. Chunky leather-clad pieces from the 1930’s to 70’s, vintage trunks, globes, maps, and vintage cartography are giving homes a collected, evolved, and well traveled feel.

2016 Trend Forecast lighting

I hate to break it to you, but size matters. In 2016, bigger is better especially when it comes to lighting. Vintage Italian Murano chandeliers (pieces from the 1970’s and 80’s) which are often reclaimed from hotels are all the rage from New York to LA and Miami to Chicago.

Another theme I see appearing as we enter 2016 is that less is more. One of the biggest trends in antiques has nothing to do with style, but quality. Clients want period pieces with provenance and they are willing to sacrifice and make these purchases. Investing in one quality piece instead of several lower end reproductions is what people are doing now.

When it comes to furniture, brown is the new black. For the last decade whitewashed woods and shabby chic has dominated the interior design scene. In 2016 discerning buyers are picking up highly polished pieces. You’ll see clean lined Empire commodes as a back drop in more interior design magazines, as they add a weight to otherwise airy rooms.

And there you have it- my predictions for what we’ll see in the next year! I hope that you’ll all continue to join me here on the blog and on social media as I travel the globe searching for antiques and style in 2016!

Cheers,

The Antiques Diva®

Antique Refectory Tables

Dear Diva Readers,

When clients come on tour, they are sourcing everything under the sun including furniture, accessories, lighting, and artwork. However some pieces seem to constantly be in demand, and tables are one of those things. Whether clients are looking for original, modified, or repurposed tables, they just can’t get enough of them! With homes being larger and open concepts being the new normal in architecture, antique refectory tables are ideal for using in dining rooms, open kitchens, and even as consoles or center tables in grand entryways.

Antique Refectory Tables

Antique Refectory Tables

A refectory table is a very long table originally used for dining in European monasteries. Early refectory tables can date back to the Medieval period and often times there would be numerous refectory tables in one dining hall of a monastery where the monks would eat and listen to sacred texts being read aloud.

Antique Refectory Tables

Antique Refectory Tables

Around the first part of the 16th century, these large tables started appearing in castles and large estate homes of the nobility and were used for feasts. Made of solid wood— usually oak or walnut– and crafted by hand, refectory tables were built to be used. It is thought that secular use of refectory tables began in and around Italy, and throughout the 16th century this trend of using them in private homes spread throughout Europe.

Antique Refectory Tables

With the wide geographical popularity of refectory tables, their styles range from ornate to rustic. Ornamental carvings and graceful iron stretchers embellish some tables, signifying the skill of their craftsmen and the status of their owners. More simple versions may have been used in country farm houses. Regardless of the style you prefer, these hefty tables can accommodate a crowd.

Antique Refectory Tables

Today, refectory tables are in high demand due to their generous proportions, quality construction, and lovely patina. From Italy to France to England to Belgium, we are constantly sourcing these fabulous pieces for clients all over.

Pantone Color of the Year 2016

Dear Diva Readers,

Pantone Color of the Year 2016 by The Antiques Diva

It seems that 2016 is going to be an interesting year of innovation and expanding boundaries throughout the world. Even Pantone is pushing the limits and doing things outside the box. Instead of selecting their usual color of the year, Pantone has announced dual hues for 2016. Serenity and Rose Quartz not only symbolize masculinity and femininity, they also embody tranquility and utilitarianism. They are straight out of Monet’s Gardens giving a soothing relief to the overworked eye, making them ideal for decorating a bedroom or pairing in comfy – yet elegant – clothes for at home entertaining. Let’s take a look at how some top taste makers and style setters would use these colors in design.

Pantone Color of the Year 2016 Sandra Espinet

– Sandra Espinet –
“Nude and Mikonos blue have dominated the fashion industry for the past two years and I feel Rose Quartz & Serenity are a lighter variation of those palettes. I am open to see how it translates into the interior design field.” – Sandy Espinet

Pantone Color of the Year 2016 John Rosselli & Associates

– John Rosselli & Associates –
“Serenity” is the perfect color to bring your home a sense of cool, soothing calm. We are all about pairing blue and white together, so we’d love to see this shade of blue combined with vibrant whites. Pantone’s “Rose Quartz” brings a soft component that used with serenity and neutral tones can give any interior space a natural quality.

Pantone Color of the Year 2016 Alan Tanskley

– Alan Tanksley –
Serenity. I love this color. There’s a freshness to it that coordinates well visually with most colors and colorful patterns. A favorite decorative scheme of mine often combines blues of this hue with organic browns and creamy whites.

Pantone Color of the Year 2016 Joe and Vivian from Global Home

– Joe & Vivian of Global Home –
We’re all about Rose Quartz this year. We see it as a resurgence of the 80’s interiors palette. Some of our favorite pieces throughout our product assortment, are made out of actual rose quartz – a beautiful pop of color in our eclectic showroom.

Pantone Color of the Year 2016 Woven Accents

– Christina Tullock of Woven Accents –
Rose quartz used properly in a room can read like a modern neutral. It works especially well when combined with charcoal grey, taupe and shades of bone.

Pantone Color of the Year 2016 Robin Baron

– Robin Baron –
Rose Quartz is a stone that helps generate love, serenity is all about being centered and calm. The names of Pantone’s colors of the year would be enough to inspire a bedroom. The colors themselves are luxurious, soft, and romantic and are perfect for creating a special master bedroom…a retreat from the crazy world we all live in.

Pantone Color of the Year 2016 Plexi Craft

– Plexi-Craft –
Plexi-Craft embraces the Pantone colors of Serenity and Quartz. We can subtly infuse many of our products with these colors, as we do with our Lane side tables (see below). Or, any fabric featuring Serenity and Quartz will look great on a Plexi-Craft upholstered bench, stool, or chair.

Pantone Color of the Year 2016 Kathryn Scott

– Kathryn Scott –
My first thought of these two colors paired together is one of the boys and girls playing. What better place for them than a playroom? These colors sing like a sunset/rainbow mural…I’d love to see what energy it brings your home.

How would you use these two colors in design or decorating? Let me know in the comments below!

Colorfully yours,

Entrepreneur Series- Starting a Company

Dear Diva Readers,

I get so many people asking me how I started my company. They are usually people who are wanting to start their own business but have doubts, which is totally normal! They have this great idea but aren’t sure about the details and have had others-often well meaning family and friends- tell them it’s too risky. I too had naysayers when starting The Antiques Diva & Co. People thought I was crazy when I told them I was going to start a luxury-based service involving both travel and interior design at the height of the global recession.

Entrepreneur Series- Starting a Company Trust Yourself

 

I originally was writing a series of books about antiquing in Europe, but with the recession of 2008, no one was publishing books. When my book series wasn’t published, naysayers encouraged me to throw in the towel and channel my energies towards more economically viable business models saying, “Forget antiques, design and travel – there’s no money to be made there.” And I ignored them. I learned early on that I had a vision that others couldn’t see. When you own your own company it’s imperative you trust your instincts. That may be one of the best pieces of advice I can give.

Entrepreneur Series- Starting a Company The path to Success is Perseverance

You absolutely should seek advice from experts – but recognize that just because an expert has good advice, it does not mean their advice is applicable for your situation right now. Some pieces of advice I save for later. Others I negate as invalid. Above all else – do not doubt yourself. No one knows your business as well as you do and the surest way towards success is PERSEVERANCE. Gage what you have control over, set a realistic target and then steadfastly walk in the direction of that goal each day. When that goal is met – move the target – and keep going forward.

Entrepreneur Series- Starting a Company Just do it

That leads me to another very important piece of advice for young entrepreneurs. Just do it. A lot of people talk about starting a company – but the only people who succeed in business are those that just do it. Do not wait until you are an expert in your field. Do not wait until you know everything there is to know. Do not wait until you are perfect. Just do it. When it comes to brand evolution, perhaps the most scandalous piece of business advice I can share is this: Do not wait until you’ve got the perfect business plan in place to start your business. Yes, you DO need a business plan. But it doesn’t have to be perfect. A good business plan will evolve over time as you learn more about your market, discover hidden sources of incomes and grow into your service. A successful brand will establish parameters which stay consistent – within which to operate – but it will evolve with the market and economic environment.

By listening to your gut instinct, planning as much as you can, and just doing it, you will be well on the way to starting a business that is as unique as you are. It’s important to listen to the advice of others, but it’s just as important to listen to your own voice and do what you know you need to do.

Gook luck,

The Antiques Diva®
