It’s no secret that a love for antiques runs deep here at Design*Sponge. When you think about it, antiques are like cats — they have many lives. There are probably pieces in your home that are older than you are, and I bet they’ve seen some pretty amazing places. Hunting down old treasures and discovering their past has been a hobby of mine for some time now. It’s not uncommon to find me scouring my favorite resale shops here in Chicago, looking for one of my favorite styles, mid-century German. Germany’s artisans have produced some of the most timeless and beautiful handiwork with many pieces still collected and coveted by auction houses and galleries today. The colors are always so vibrant and I know that they’ll immediately add visual interest to my space, like today’s first home tour in Berlin.
Timea of Mighty Vintage‘s love for “the find” is what drew me to the home she shares with her partner, Igor. It’s filled with vintage clocks, plates and all sorts of decorative details. Their fun and playful space is the perfect backdrop for the couple’s game nights and cooking/catch-up sessions. They fell in love with one of the oldest parts of Berlin, Rixdorf, while visiting its famous Christmas market. Fast forward five years later and they found the perfect place to house all their treasures. Timea and Igor decorate with overflow from her shop, making this home tour almost completely shoppable. So click through the beautiful photos and, if you fall in love with a piece, you might even be able to take it home with you. Enjoy! —Garrett
