In order to make sure I had plenty of new beautiful items coming to FOUND, I thought it was important to rush off for a last minute trip to my beloved Paris and was able to go see some of my favorite antique dealers and vendors.   As we shelter in place now, I am ever more grateful for my time spent there, albeit brief!

As Team Found awaits with anticipation to share these items with all of you I thought it would be fun to give you a sneak peek of some of my favorite finds!


Father of the Sputnik style chandelier- this Gorgeous and rare Bakalowits chandelier is a masterpiece.  Made of quality materials, its unique design delivers direct vertical light and radian light through the glass primis which sparkle from every angle.  I want this for my own master bedroom if it doesn’t find a home!


A pair of Mid-Century Italian lounge chairs from the 1960s upholstered in the richest ivory Loro Piana boucle fabric.  The chairs have gorgeous modern lines and chic heavy brass legs.  Gorgeous as a statement duo in any space.


At FOUND, we are obsessed with many vintage things, one of them being Aldo Tura.  I found this bar trolly in a rich modeled brown tone, which is rich and elegant.  What a gorgeous way to serve your guests! Take a look at our chic green Aldo Tura bar trolly that arrive from Paris last month.

Italian designer Aldo Tura first began producing his iconic furniture in the 1930s in a workshop near Milan. Tura’s designs are a unique synthesis of mid-century aesthetics. Often employing idiosyncratic materials like parchment, eggshell, and, perhaps most remarkably, goatskin, as in this beautiful trolly.  Each piece has a unique visual interest that cannot be found elsewhere.

A pair of vintage sputnik style sconces in brass each with 10 unique bubbled aventurine hand blown Venini glass globes that seem to shimmer and sparkle.  I love these flush mounted on a ceiling or a wall!  


I adore this beautiful and heavy weighted 3 tier brass bar cart by French designer Jaques Quinet for Maison Malabert, 1970.  Perfect for serving your guest your signature cocktail.


A pair of crystal and brass table lamps also by Austrian designer Maison Bakalawits, 1970.   These dazzling fountain shaped lamps have a wonderful femininity and bygone glamor.  I love them paired in the same room with the gorgeous sputnik chandelier where they would be jewels on bedside tables!
