Max: Too hard to choose but vintage lighting is always a fun category and I’ve found some mid-century pottery table lamps out there that I still kick myself for not keeping.
Max: I bought a 1970s Gucci fine porcelain coffee service set at an auction years back that somehow flew under the radar of other bidders. I use it on special occasions. The coffee cups are the kind you can only feel cool drinking from if you stick your pinky out like some 11th century aristocrat.
Max: One rule is to not be sentimental about stuff. If I even have to think twice about buying something I don’t bother. I’ll know it if it’s something that has to come home with me. And If I do take anything away it’s more fun to give it to a friend then try and sell it.
Max: OTHER THAN ARTIFACT I shop for antique Moroccan rugs at Kat and Maouche for all my clients. I’m always finding treasures at City Home and I love driving out to Aurora to go to Aurora Mills Architectural Salvage.
Max: No but I read a lot of retail catalogues. I like the pretty pictures and over the top styling. The new Schoolhouse Electric Catalogue rocks.
