Get set for a pre-Christmas warehouse event full of vintage French finds that will knock your socks off!
North Shore French vintage décor label Dusty Luxe is opening its Artarmon warehouse doors to the public for 5 days only, from November 17-21!
Dusty Luxe is the brainchild of Mosman based sisters-in-law, Jackie and Anna Kennard. What began for Jackie as a passion project to design and decorate her family’s quintessential country farmhouse and for Anna, a long sabbatical in France with her family, has flourished into a thriving business and hobby for the design-savvy duo.
During her 18-month stint in France, Anna uncovered some of the best flea markets, vide-greniers (literal translation: “empty the attic”), brocantes and estate sales in the country. Combined with Jackie’s art and design expertise, the pair have established a bespoke network of local interior designers, stylists and decorators who regularly source beautiful vintage finds, on demand, for their Australian customers.
Dusty Luxe’s current collection features beautiful unique vintage French finds such as farmhouse tables, outdoor settings, painted armoires, old French copper, wine boxes, Provençal shutters, buffets, chandeliers, butchers block, zinc buckets, flower picker baskets, lots of chairs much much more!
All items are sourced from Lyon, Paris, Provence, Normandy and the French Alps from local Vide Maisons, brocantes, alpine chalets, estate and hotel sales.
Some of the stand-out items include:
- Stunning Napoleon III mirror from Villefranche-sur-Saône just outside of Lyon after the sale of a grand chateau.
- Shutters from Provence
- Oversized buffet and hutch from a 5 star hotel in Chamonix
