A Collected Living

This fall a new book was released called “Collected, Living With Things You Love” highlighting the way one should collect, and live with their treasures. As an Antiquarian I have become well acquainted with collecting. Some of my favorite pieces are tobacco jars, but that doesn’t mean I still can’t learn a thing or two about acquiring other exceptional items.

Architectural Diget

Architectural Digest

“At the heart of Collected: Living with the Things You Love is the idea that collecting need not be pretentious; rather, it should be a way of decorating with the treasures we find, no matter how strange or obscure.” Says Arielle Pardes.

Luxurious Luggage

The holidays are here and with that comes travel. As we all prepare to leave home to be with family and friends there are a few things to consider. One is the luggage of choice, the second is, how to properly pack. Mr Porter features Mr Jerome Griffith, the CEO of travel accessories brand Tumi, demonstrating his packing methods.

Now granted times are different today, where we use smaller more compact luggage, but imagine what it must have been like to load up massive trunks just to go on vacation. Here are a few antique luggage pieces from the latest buying trip.
