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.

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.
