Fun Junk Antiques in Rome

Furniture Ideas

Last week, we stopped by this fun and funky antique store in Trastevere, a favorite downtown area in Rome. This antique shop is a rare breed. It reminds of American lifestyle fashion furniture stores which also sell  (vintage) Oriental furniture. Such shop is a rare find in Rome.

What makes this shop more special is its pairing of stylish recycled furniture with refined Roman antiques, like these gorgeous lamps.

When you look at the scrap wooden furniture pieces, I know you are all thinking: “I can so make this myself.” And this is true.   The question is which one to make, it’s a toss. These driftwood chairs are winners: functional & foldable, frivolous and fun.

The favorite however is the recycled wood cabinet.  These recycled wood furniture pieces were expensive, but I know you all can whip up your own recycled boat wood cabinet at a budget.  Salvage some old painted wood. Leave it completely distressed and just hammer it onto an existing cabinet whose front is blah..
