New Shop To Watch: The Apartment

Most days I think I’ve got a pretty good eye – looking at design differently to others, seeing details things others don’t. It gives me cause to feel quite smug about it really. Then, I stumble across another creative who just hits the ball out of the park with their taste level and ability to find beauty in places others may not. Like Tina Seidenfaden Busck, who is the founder of The Apartment, a retail space in a beautifully restored 18th century apartment in old Copenhagen that is home to a constantly rotating set of vintage homeware and contemporary art and design.

I’m a particular admirer of people that can source jaw-dropping vintage pieces – ones that make you feel you will never find a piece like it ever again. From luminous Murano glass chandeliers in rose tinted hues to hand-painted crystal tumblers with botanical patterns and ceramics in perfect candy colours – the beauty of Tina’s selections is that they would not look out of place in a modern interior.

The Apartment also exhibits the creative talents of designers Michael AnastassiadesIlse Crawford and McCollin Bryan and is the perfect exercise in how vintage, contemporary and designer pieces can exist seamlessly side by side.

The Apartment is open Thursdays from 12-4. To purchase an item from their inventory, call or send an email, they ship worldwide.

    I love the polyhedral chandelier – definitely agree that most of these wouldn’t look out of place in a modern setting. Pretty bold but very stylish! Great article.
