Our story

Ciao,

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 make a change, 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 a curated collection of vintage pieces for your home - hand-picked in Italy. Read more about our travels.

I hope you find something that inspires you and connects the past with the present - adding a little spark to your every day. If you like decor with character and amazing heritage, you’ve come to the right place! See some of our pieces that have found amazing new homes

Get in touch if you have any questions or you would like us to find a particular item on our next trip to Italy.

Cari saluti,

Katia Bertani Green

Founder

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.
