From Paragon to you, where to shop for antiques

The creative association of old and new art, objects and furnishings in a head-spinning and yet personal mix is Pascale’s trademark and signature design style. With Ulrike, her companion in life, she always brings to life projects with a soul and a vision. Her research for perfection down to the smallest detail creates a unique result that is coherent and deeply modern. Of course, travelling has always been an incredible source of inspiration for both of them, but they can scout some excellent furniture and objects here, in Puglia. Here’s their secret list for shopping antiques and vintage.

 

AD’OPERA
We like this gallery and shop because one can find some selected antiques and paintings of all kinds. You can even get them custom made.

AD’OPERA – Lifestyle and Contemporary Art Gallery
Corso Vittorio Emanuele 31 – 74015 Martina Franca (TA)

 

LA MERCANTERIA – Collecting & Curiosity
Here you poke around for a while. There is always something to find. A precious chandelier, a kitchen table for your farmhouse, a vase…as it says on the label: curious things!

LA MERCANTERIA – Collecting & Curiosity
Corso Vittorio Emanuele 7 – 72017 Ostuni

ANTONIO D’ERASMO – Home & Garden store
In this large showroom in Bari, objects from all over the world are displayed in a personal and accurate synthesis by Antonio D’Erasmo himself. He travels to the most remote corners of the world, searching for ideas and objects, facing the thick humidity of the rainforests of Java or the sharp heat of the plains of Rajasthan.

ANTONIO D’ERASMO – Home & Garden store
Via Guglielmo Oberdan, 42-42/A – 70126 BARI (BA)

BERNARDO PALAZZO – Designer
Bernardo creates interesting objects and sculptures with all kind of material. He works at his home in the countryside near Cisternino. We found him walking around in the historical centre where he has a small showroom—viewings mainly by appointment.

Showroom: Via Miravalle 1 – 72014 Cisternino (BR)

 

Vineria I BUONGIORNO
For us, it’s not really about their wines, even if they are delicious. Still, it’s one of those shops in which you can find a little gift for your loved ones at home or a souvenir for yourself like a “Pumi di Grottaglie” (famous porcelain town in Puglia), a symbol of Good Luck and Rebirth.

And finally, two special places, two unique concept stores and art galleries in which one can find several different types of objects and great inspiration.

Blanc Café & Living Store
Via XXIV Maggio 19/21 – 73014 Gallipoli (TA)
