This is the online shop for Vintage Maison Studio based on the coast in Worthing. Katie, the founder, enjoys sourcing furniture, vintage accessories & decorative antiques. The painted furniture and vintage homewares provide a constant source for home decoration in the country living style. With the changing of the seasons you will always find a great selection of decorative accessories, antiques and handcrafted, artisan gifts.
Katie’s passion first started in her early 20′s. Her first flat needed furnishing so she hunted through antique and brocante markets for unique pieces. Katie began to collect furniture, old decorative items and textiles. This was to become the start of her love for all things vintage.
Throughout her travels Katie was inspired by the furniture she found. She sourced old French linens and pretty floral fabrics, which made beautiful cushions. At home the kitchen table is a mixture of wooden and painted chairs scattered with vintage textiles. A French influence is evident throughout her home with the rooms painted in soft whites and greys, antique mirrors, vintage eiderdowns and painted furniture in muted hues, to create a calm and fresh interior. The overall style is a subtle blend of cottage charm and comfortable French style.
Kate has planted a cottage style garden in her home which is a mixture of lavenders, old apple and pear trees and a variety of cottage plants. Wisteria grows over a flint wall beneath which sits a collection of vintage terracotta pots, a painted wooden bench, decorative wall sconces and a pretty metal archway which links the main garden to a raised seating area.
In 2004, Katie opened Vintage Maison and turned her interiors passion into a business. Today, the online shop continues to be stocked with a unique mixture of painted and country furniture, vintage finds, pretty floral cushions, handmade gifts and decorative accessories for the home and garden.
We hope that you enjoy viewing the online gallery of furniture, home wares, antiques and decorative pieces.
