Regina Andrew Detroit, a lighting, furniture and decor brand known for globally inspired designs made with natural materials, is dedicating a section of its website to the sale of vintage, one-of-kind items. Amassed through a lifetime of collecting by company co-founders Carla Regina and James Andrew, the products are available for sale beginning July 19.
The vintage section of ReginaAndrew.com launches with more than 100 thoughtfully curated furniture and decor items with plans to add more products over the next several months. The items are from the personal collections of Carla Regina and James Andrew as well as from photo shoots and special projects.
“Over the years we have shared a small offering of vintage items through the ‘One of One’ section of our site, but this new vintage section will give us a broader platform to showcase some of our favorite pieces,” Regina said. “Now the decor that caught our eye on a trip to Europe or a specific piece from one of our photo shoots can find a new home with our customers.”
Vintage offerings for sale include items that can serve as a room’s focal point or add a final decorative touch to a range of rooms in the home:
Small and large cunmin pots made from clay once held spices but today could serve as planters or statement pieces. A selection of Ukrainian bread bowls has a farmhouse decor feel to them and are accented with hand-carved details. A handmade strawberry pot from the 1940s harkens back to the days of Route 66 travel with a colorful swirled glaze ideal for modern decor. Several European bistro chairs are available, lending the sophisticated beauty of European cafes to a kitchen or dining area.
The vintage items in the collection are all understated with rustic, gently worn details. Like most of the Regina Andrew Detroit collection, the vintage pieces bring a room together into a well-told story.
“Our vintage project has been in development for more than a year, but our collecting of beautiful items has been a lifelong passion,” Andrew said. “Decor should tell a story, and this is our chance to share part of our story with anyone who appreciates vintage details as much as we do.”
