Our story


It all started simply as a love of Italian design from the past. After twenty years working in Marketing in London and Helsinki, I decided to change direction and go back to my half Italian roots and follow my passion for the beauty, uniqueness and craftmanship of vintage Italian furniture and accessories.

I started Barlume Vintage to share this passion and bring you an eclectic collection of curated vintage pieces for your home - hand-picked in Italy. Read more about our travels.

I hope you find something that inspires you, connecting the past with the present, and adds a little spark to your every day. If you like decor with a personality and heritage you’ve come to the right place! 

Get in touch if you have any questions or you would like us to find a particular item on our next trip to Italy. And subscribe to our newsletter to get 10% off your first order and stay in the loop about new product arrivals and special offers.

Tanti saluti,

Katia Bertani Green


P.S. 'Barlume' means Glimmer or Spark in Italian. It symbolizes that little extra spark of delight I hope you feel on owning a genuine Italian vintage piece.
