In Venice, Shopping for Vintage on Abbot Kinney and ...

Stylists and interior designers have long been coming to a handful of vintage and antiques stores tucked along Venice's Abbot Kinney Boulevard - and now Lincoln Boulevard - to find one-of-a-kind pieces and specialty items for magazine spreads, cutting-edge ad campaigns and celebrity clients. These are the gems that no one else has, that often come with a back story and can become the most coveted and personal pieces in your home. All of these shops focus on the "formerly owned" and are within walking distance of one another - although some might consider it a long walk. A bike with a basket for carrying your bounty is highly recommended.

Bazar

1108 Abbot Kinney Blvd., (310) 314-2101

This eclectic shop, which showcases a varied mix of antique furniture, vintage clothing and jewelry, also specializes in French pieces from the 1940s. Tina Wakino opened the store in 1998, while she was importing and selling furniture from France. "Having a retail space just seemed natural at the time," she says. Her favorite pieces in the shop when we visited: a pair of antique square club chairs and an industrial worktable with small seats that swing out, although the 1920s French canoe that hangs over the register is such a favorite it is no longer for sale. "It has become our mascot," she says. Coming soon: the Bazar Annex on Westminster Avenue, also in Venice. "It's just a little space that I plan to dedicate to art, home accessories, furnishings and textiles. I'm excited about the new space and all the additional goodies I can showcase."

The Perfect Piece

1216 Abbot Kinney Blvd., (310) 581-1002

Jay "Mad Dog" Jay opened the Perfect Piece "a long time ago," he says, when there were still between 15 and 20 vintage and antique stores in the neighborhood. "At one time we were meeting to establish ourselves as a vintage district," says Jay. "Now there are just a few of us." His store is housed in half of a bright blue cottage. He carries an eclectic mix - lighting, furniture, guitars and anything else that he finds interesting. His favorite recent merchandise: a 1950s era vintage mirror that has been both etched and painted with a pinup girl and two Impressionist nudes painted by 20th century artist and film set designer Ben Carré.

Venice Vintage Paradise

2304 Abbot Kinney Blvd., (310) 968-9904

Jeanie Reynolds set up shop 10 years ago on Abbot Kinney Boulevard but recently moved to a much larger space with new partner Sal Torres across from the French Market Café. The inventory of this eclectic space is constantly shifting, with a variety of midcentury furniture, antiques, home accessories, art, textiles, vintage outdoor pieces, tabletop décor, pottery, linens and more. The shop is known for an expansive collection of vintage blankets and has a loyal following of stylists and editors on the hunt for original pieces.

The Mart Collective

1600 Lincoln Blvd., (310) 450-5142

This space is more than 16,000 square feet, boasts more than 100 dealers and could be considered the mother ship of area antiques dealers. The collective opened in 2013 and is run by Robin Messick and Anthony Hudson, former managers of the Wertz Brothers Antique Mart in Santa Monica, which closed in 2013. "We have anything from vintage buttons, costume jewelry, silverware, books and postcards to iconic midcentury furnishings, country decor and old industrial school furniture and accessories," says Messick. Some of the dealers are specialists and others generalists, which adds to the variety and depth of the business. Most unusual piece to date: a 6-foot diameter light fixture made from the metal struts of a car (it sold in just a few days to a set decorator). "We never know what's about to come through the door," Messick adds.

Vintage Link

1701 Lincoln Blvd., (310) 968-9904

The newest addition to the vintage scene in Venice is Vintage Link. Opened by Jeanie Reynolds and Sal Torres, owners of Venice Vintage Paradise, just three months ago, the shop is what Reynolds refers to as a more curated version of their shop on Abbot Kinney. "It's really a space to show people the most special things we find, Reynolds said. There is an extensive collection of midcentury pottery, rugs and textiles as well as some one-of-a-kind pieces. They also have a small collection of '70s shag rugs and a variety of coffee and side tables.

H. Bleu Vintage & Reclaimed

2124 Lincoln Blvd., (310) 396-6266

It's easy to miss this shop, which is tucked back on Lincoln next to an Arco station, but when you get there it doesn't disappoint. Susan Lennon, a former caterer and jeweler, opened her business in 2011. She has a flair for industrial vintage and antique pieces but also carries a nice selection of antique furniture and outdoor and garden pieces as well as lighting and accessories. She offers original pieces as well as refurbished options. Her favorites in the shop during a recent visit: prison bunk beds, early wooden elevator doors and a pile of more than 120 old law books. "There's always something really interesting around the next corner. This business never gets boring."

Sarah Dougherty has had an eclectic career. She earned a degree in English literature in Vermont. Following that she came back to Montreal to do a law degree, after which she worked for many years in a private practise. Dougherty then decided to become a student once more, earning a master's degree in journalism. For 10 years she worked as a freelance writer, specializing in business and sports and contributing to major newspapers and magazines.In 2009, her career took yet another turn. This time, Dougherty combined her two skills - journalism and law. She now works for a non-profit called éducaloi, which helps people through the tangle of legalese that tends to confound the lay person. Éducaloi does not take on actualcases, but merely simplifies procedures for the average Joe. Dougherty's title at the organization -plain language specialist -says it all.Throughout the various changes in her life, Doughertylived for the most part in Notre-Dame-de-Grce, an area she loves. Seven years ago, however, she had to move from her apartment when the landlord wanted to take back the building. As luck would have it, she found another, similar apartment on the very same street.Her current home is the upper floor of a 1931 duplex. It has three bedrooms and two balconies. It has the architectural features typical of its era -hardwood floors (with contrasting inlay in the living room), french doors at one end of the hallway, original wood trim, multi-paned leaded windows and a fireplace,which now harbours a wood-burning stove. The interior is warm and welcoming -an effect created by the glow of Dougherty's antique furniture and the many rugs and decorative fabrics that adorn the rooms.I have an Iranian friend who sells kilims and other things, like the cushions in my spare bedroom and the strip of fabric with the tassels that hangs above my own bed. That was once a decoration for a nomad's tent.My mother tells me this was called a "captain's chest" because it splits into two parts and can be stacked one on top of the other. Apparently, that was so it would fit more easily into a cramped cabin. The owner could leave half of it behind when he went to sea.I did, and everything fit!

Ellen DeGeneres has purchased another big estate in the super exclusive enclave of Montecito, California It's being reported that the 59-year-old talk show host is now next-door neighbors with Oprah Winfrey, who she shares a property line with, after buying a $7.2million Spanish style home in the same gated community.The property sits on six acres and includes two homes; one built in 1845 and covering 3,000 sq ft and the other 3,600 sq ft and built in 2006, according to TMZ The property listing describes the secluded bolthole as surrounded 'by olive groves, rose gardens and private courtyards' as well as 'professional quality equestrian facilities'.There are four bedrooms and four and a half bathrooms in the 'incredibly private' home which boasts both mountain and ocean views.Images from inside the property reveal plenty of period features including exposed beams and antique furniture and artwork filling every room.The previous owner opted for a traditional feel with terracotta tiling and ornate rugs throughout - which Ellen, a passionate interior designer, may choose to update.The kitchen is a perfect mix of country style with updated appliances and plenty of counter space.Ellen and wife Portia de Rossi, 44, already have a palatial estate in Montecito, known as The Villa, which they have been trying to sell since March.The stunning Tuscan style mansion is on the market for a cool $39.5million, reduced from the originally listed price of $45million.Ellen and Portia bought the property in 2013 for $26.5 million and subsequently bought two adjacent properties, making the estate's total land space almost 17 acres.The home itself has six bedrooms and six full and two half baths spread across 10,500-square-feet.Ellen purchased her latest Montecito pad in September so it's likely she's already moved-in amid the wildfires ravaging Ventura and Santa Barbara county.The Finding Dory star revealed over the weekend she was forced to evacuate her home because of the fast-moving fire that has already burned through over 200,000 acres.The comedienne also just purchased a beachfront home in Carpinteria, which is situated just minutes south down the coast from Montecito, forking over $18.6million for the property in October.Carpinteria was also under threat from the fires over the weekend.Ellen explained the worrying situation on Twitter on Sunday with a message that read: 'Our house is under threat of being burned. We just had to evacuate our pets. I'm praying for everyone in our community and thankful to all the incredible firefighters.' She followed up with another message showing her gratitude for her neighbors and emergency workers in the area.'Everyone in the Montecito area is checking up on each other and helping to get people and animals to safety. I'm proud to be a part of this community. I'm sending lots of love and gratitude to the fire department and sheriffs. Thank you all. #ThomasFire' Oprah and fellow neighbor Rob Lowe have also reportedly had to evacuate as the fire threatens their neighborhood.

Djahanguir Riahi of antique furniture Djahanguir Riahi (22 September 1914 28 April 2014) was a French-Iranian businessman and a renowned collector of 18th century French furniture. Riahl has been declared one of the greatest art collectors since 1945. Riahi started out as an engineer and road-builder, eventually acquiring an apartment in France. He started collecting in the 1970s, in order to furnish the apartment in the grandest possible tradition. Riahi swiftly achieved notoriety among French dealers due to regularly outbidding them on the finest pieces at auction. Among the master craftsmen represented in the collection were Andr Charles Boulle, the bnistes Bernard II van Risamburgh and Martin Carlin; and carpets and tapestry from the Savonnerie and Gobelins manufactories. Some of his individual pieces included wall brackets from Marie Antoinette's bedroom and a cabinet made for the Comtesse de Provence. 59 pieces from the collection, including pieces with royal provenances, were purchased in 2000 by Christie's and estimated to raise 25 million dollars when auctioned off. In 2012 Christie's held a second auction dedicated to former Riahl collection pieces. ------ 3. Clark Mansion (Winchester, Kentucky) of antique furniture Clark Mansion also known as Holly Rood or the Gov. James A. Clark Mansion, is one of the most historic homes in Clark County, Kentucky. Construction began in 1813 for James Clark who was 13th governor of Kentucky and was finished in 1814. It was built specifically for James and his wife, who named it after her father. Clark Mansion is historically significant for its Federal architecture. It is a single building on less than 1-acre (4,000 m2) of land. It is a two-story brick painted red house with a wide front porch and Ionic columns. It also has a wide entrance and the 2nd story has a Palladian window. Clark Mansion sits away from the road and has a huge front yard. It is located close to Hannah McClure Elementary, Library and College Park. The building was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1974. As it is owned by the local government, people can tour the house and view its antique furniture. It is often used for formal events including weddings. Clark was buried in a private burial ground in the old Clark home at Winchester, Clark County, Kentucky. A Monument was built in the place where he was buried. ------ 4. Carlton House desk of antique furniture A Carlton House desk is a specific antique desk form within the more general bureau gradin form. This form of desk is supposed to have been designed in the 18th century for the Prince of Wales (who later became George IV) by George Hepplewhite. It is named after Carlton House, which was at the time the London residence of the Prince, and sometimes is also known as a Carlton House writing table. The desk resembles a normal writing table, but small drawers above the surface form a "U" shape around the user, instead of merely facing the user as in a typical bureau gradin. Unlike other types of bureau gradin, the Carlton House desk usually offers no pigeonholes. There are usually small slopes over each of the desktop drawers at the left and right ends of the "U" shape. Drawings of this type of desk were presented by Hepplewhite in his noted design book, the Cabinet-Maker and Upholsterer's Guide, and by Thomas Sheraton in his own book of designs, The Cabinet Maker and Upholsterer's Drawing Book, thus ensuring its popularity. ------ 5. Museums of antique furniture FPMs first museum project began in 1997 with the setting of the Theatre Museum. Initially the Foundation organised four exhibitions on Maltese heritage with the names of Antique Maltese Clocks, The Sedan Chair in Malta, Girolamo Gianni in Malta and The Silver in Malta. These exhibitions were the precursor to a larger and more permanent museum project, namely the restoration and transformation of the Palazzo Falson Historic House Museum. This project was carried out through an agreement with The Captain O F Gollcher OBE Art an Archaeological Foundation, whereby FPM was to manage the museum and transform it into a state of the art historic house museum. Palazzo Falson Historic House MuseumPalazzo Falson is the second oldest structure still standing in Mdina, parts of which date back to the 13th century. In 1927 the Palazzo was bought by Olof Frederick Gollcher OBE (18891962), a collector of objets dart including paintings, silver, furniture, jewellery, oriental rugs and arms and armour, among others. Gollcher wanted his house to be preserved with its contents as a museum open to the general public, and in his will left instructions for the setting up of a foundation bearing his name that was to carry out this wish. Following a five-year intensive restoration exercise, Palazzo Falson Historic House Museum opened its doors to the public in May 2007. Palazzo Falson currently hosts both a permanent collection and temporary exhibitions, exhibiting artefacts and objects of relevance to Maltese cultural heritage from public and private collections. Victor Pasmore GalleryIn September 2015, FPM took over the management of the Victor Pasmore Gallery with the aim of bringing to light the importance of Victor Pasmore and the Maltese modern art movement. Born in Chelsham, Surrey, Victor Pasmore (19081998) settled and worked in Malta in the second half of the twentieth century. The collection at the VP Gallery covers a wide range of Pasmores creations and preferred media, including drawings, reliefs and spray paintings, constructions, prints and composite works. Though not all produced in Malta, the works on display are largely representative of Pasmores artistic practice following the move to his village farmhouse in Gudja in 1966, and also exhibit a greater sensitivity and interest in light, colour and myth. The gallery is situated on the site of a former gunpowder magazine, originally dating back to the period of the Order of St John, and was later rebuilt during the British period. The magazine was restored by the Central Bank of Malta and The Victor Pasmore Foundation, and was officially opened to the public on 3 November 2014. ------ 6. Chteau de la Mogre of antique furniture The Chteau de la Mogre is a mansion near the city of Montpellier in the French region of Occitanie. It is one of many folies (country houses) on the outskirts of Montpellier, built by wealthy merchants in the 18th century. In 1706, the grounds of la Mogre were purchased by Fulcran Limouzin, the local Secrtaire d'tat la Maison du Roi (one of the types of Secretary of State in France's Ancien Rgime). In 1715, architect Jean Giral drew the plan for La Mogre, giving it the appearance it still has today. Its harmonious faade is topped off by a pediment, standing against a background of pine trees, all in Renaissance-style. The grounds and interior, currently owned by the Viscount Gaston de Saporta, are open for visits. The interior has been kept intact since the 18th century, displaying antique furniture and family portraits from the last three centuries. Amongst the painters represented here are Jean Jouvenet, Hyacinthe Rigaud and Jacques-Louis David. The garden is a mixture of English garden and formal garden style and houses a large fountain built up out of thousands of little seashells and carrying a number of cherubs. La Mogre nowadays lies right next to the Autoroute A9 and in close proximity to the Montpellier - Mditerrane Airport and Montpellier-Sud de France station. The last stop of the Montpellier tramway line 1 (Odysseum) is a 10-minute walk away. The Chteau de Flaugergues is also nearby. ------ 7. Collections of antique furniture Fine artsThe museum housed the major part of the national collection of Malta. The collection began in 1923 when the first fine arts curator, Vincenzo Bonello, embarked on establishing a collection within what was then called the National Museum. Bonello acquired numerous works of excellent quality on the local art market, and in London and Italy. Most were purchased at a time when prices in the art market where still within reach of the museum's modest budget. Public spirited individuals and organizations also left significant bequests. The permanent display included the largest collection of paintings by the Southern Italian Baroque artist Mattia Preti (16131699), an Italian Knight of the Order of Malta who also contributed to the transformation of the interior of St. Johns Co-Cathedral in Valletta. This, together with a fine and rare collection of antique maps, represented one of the strengths of the collection. The works of other artists on display included Guido Reni (15751642), the Caravaggisti Valentin de Boulogne (15911632), Giuseppe Ribera (15911662) and Matthias Stom (16001652), as well as Carlo Maratta (16251713) and Bernardo Strozzi (15811644). Works by Dutch, French and British artists were also on permanent display. The collection also included the works of two outstanding Maltese sculptors, Melchiorre Gaf (16361667) and Antonio Sciortino (18791947), and a noteworthy group of Maltese landscapes. The Grand Harbour of Malta and its environs is the subject of a Joseph Mallord William Turner (17751851) watercolour. Other works by Edward Lear (18121888), Louis Ducros (17481810) and local artists representing the same subject were also on display. Furniture and silverwareThe museum exhibited a collection of Maltese furniture and silverware, as well as majolica jars mainly of Sicilian production. Many of the jars were in use at the Sacra Infermeria, the Hospital of the Order of St John. Ecclesiastical silverware was also on display, including a rare fifteenth century chalice of Parisian workmanship. Temporary exhibitionsThe museum had a very active calendar of temporary exhibitions mainly by Maltese artists. Museum curated exhibitions have included the following: Postage Stamp Artwork: Emvin Cremona (19191987) Shaping a Modern Identity in Maltas Philatelic Heritage (SeptemberOctober 2010) showed original stamp artwork and graphic designs produced by Emvin Cremona, most of which were put on display for the first time. Pictures of the Floating World Ukiyo-e Prints from the National Collection (December 2009) exhibited original Japanese Ukiyo-e from the national collection. Victor Pasmore in Malta (December 2008 January 2009) exhibited abstract works by the international British artist Victor Pasmore from the museum collection and the Central Bank of Malta collection. The Maria Pasani Bequest (January March 2008) exhibited eleven paintings by the Maltese artist Lazzaro Pisani donated by his daughter, Maria Pasani.

Architecture of antique furniture In its original composition before the restoration after the damage suffered in World War II, the palace was made up of a main nucleus parallel to the Main river, of three heights finished off by a last floor under cover. This main body was flanked by two towers that had one more floor than the main body. On the faade opposite the river, the palace had two parallel wings arranged perpendicular to the main faade, forming a cour d'honneur. The wings had a single floor and a floor below deck and were finished off at their final ends with two two-story pavilions and a floor below deck. The interior was richly decorated with antique furniture. The palace was characteristically painted white and had slate roofs. At present, the structure is, in general lines, preserved. ------ 5.

Loeser settled in Florence in 1890, where he met and married German pianist Olga Lebert Kaufmann. He spent the rest of his life here collecting and studying Medieval and early Renaissance art and furniture. Loesser purchased his Villa Torri Gattaia, nestled in the Florentine hills behind San Miniato al Monte, around 1908 and started on renovations. In Florence, Loeser devoted himself to his studies and the collecting of works of art, and furniture that was flooding the market at the turn of the century. ------ 7.

The museum was established in 1950 with the purpose to find, collect, keep and present the cultural and historical heritage of Mostar and Herzegovina. It is housed in the former home of Demal Bijedi, the head of the Yugoslav Government who died in a plane crash in 1977. The building, constructed during the Austrian-Hungarian period, is an example of a mixture of architectural features between the Austrian-style dwelling and Oriental residency.

Some of his individual pieces included wall brackets from Marie Antoinette's bedroom and a cabinet made for the Comtesse de Provence. 59 pieces from the collection, including pieces with royal provenances, were purchased in 2000 by Christie's and estimated to raise 25 million dollars when auctioned off. In 2012 Christie's held a second auction dedicated to former Riahl collection pieces. ------ 11.
