Rustikt Antikt was started by a group of Swedes and one somewhat bemused American who believe the United States has an interest in items rarely available on the U. S. market. This is not the furniture of European royalty.
We provide uniquely Swedish farmhouse style décor. While a very few pieces have come from dealers, most items are acquired directly from families who have had these pieces for generations. None of these items are reproductions. Our acquisition team has many years of experience working with 16th, 17th and 18th century buildings and furnishings. Construction techniques, hinges, locks, latches, handles and paints are carefully examined to confirm they are period correct with undisturbed original paint and patina. Many feature truly beautiful hand carving.
Rustikt Antikt (Swedish spelling whose meaning should be is obvious) offers a range of antique furniture for your next residential or commercial restoration project.
Our collection includes dark wood tone, light wood tone, multi-color, red tone and clear pieces. You can also expect accents and features, which include metal, wood, glass, fabric, cast iron, brass and mirror.
Choose your favorite piece for any room from our selection of antique tables, cabinets, aquavit (snaps) cabinets, waiting area seats, kitchen (servant or kvinnor) beds, and many other novel pieces. Create a statement in your environment with a unique piece that reflects your individual style and carries a piece of history into the future.
We also venture beyond furniture, offering antique art – generally folk but also cultural items and fabrics - and other antique and vintage items such as uniquely Swedish cups, glasses, and other decorative items.
Our goal is to acquire and offer antiques that have excellent value and aesthetic appeal, allowing our customers to infuse their lives and homes with the comforts, refinements, and artistic expressions of earlier eras.
Many of our transactions are with established clients. Once we become familiar with customers' tastes, collecting passions, or furnishing and decorating needs, we let them know when we acquire something they might like and will make every effort to acquire items they desire.
So please don't hesitate to call us, introduce yourself, and give us an idea of the antiques you'd like to have. We look forward to getting to know you, and helping you find something that you'll love.
