ICONIC PIECES INSPIRED BY PEOPLE, OBJECTS & PLACES WE HOLD DEAR.
Ten years ago, we started one of Swedens most stylish and eclectic vintage stores with carefully selected design furniture, interior accessories and art that attracted buyers from all over the world. The journey started on a small scale and in addition to our regular jobs in fashion, we started going to flea markets and buying home everything from furniture to decorative items to our apartment. Quickly, the home and the storage were filled and soon we realized that there was a market to sell vintage items.
To start the journey and create a business activity of our hobby, step one was to “brainstorm” a plan for our well-balanced flea bargains. We had luck to borrow some friends’ house in Barcelona where we gathered inspiration in the Catalan city. “It was a couple of evenings in the garden with too much wine, but then the idea of what we wanted to do grew, and while Dusty Springfield sang ”Son of A Preacher man“, we decided that we would be called Dusty Deco, since then it has been our baby. Dusty Deco!
DUSTY DECO IS BORN
The first purchase trip went to the US and the focus was on finding industrial items such as rusty cans and signs that we sold in our first store at Gärdet in Stockholm. Subsequently, the style of Dusty Deco has gradually evolved, resulting in two stores in Söder, a smaller store in Östermalm and finally we opened the gates in an old 600-square garage on Brahegatan 21. Here we carefully selected selected design classics, furniture with a visual expression and contemporary art. We created a living room that we loved.
We have made purchases all over the world, met incredibly exciting people in different markets and squares, and the journey and meetings have always motivated us and made us grow. The trip has been fantastic and we have never given up on our basic idea of just buying things we love and would like to have in our home.
After a decade of distinctive experiences the next step was suddenly clear for us; to begin creating our own collection of striking pieces for our home that can inspire others, the way that we have been fortunate enough to experience ourselves.
Since 3 years our family lives on the Spanish island of Mallorca where we now have our showroom in a huge old Mallorquin apartment where we are showing the Dusty Deco collection, art, objects and vintage pieces that we love. Alongside the showroom we are refurbishing an old carpentry shop we bought a few years back. At that time there was neither electricity nor water but we saw great potential as the premises had beautiful windows and a sparkling garden.
