School is Back in Session

As the season turns to autumn, we are delighted to introduce a new collection of antique treasures. This latest collection pays homage to the artistic and architectural excellence of early 20th century Dutch design. With a focus on the groundbreaking work of Haagse and Amsterdamse school designers, the pieces show a unique blend of traditional Dutch craftsmanship and modernist design principles. Indeed, these pieces are more than just furniture; they are a testament to a bygone era of artistic innovation and craft.

The legacy of these design schools left an indelible mark on Dutch architecture and design, and now, you can own a piece of this legacy. Our carefully curated selection features five exquisite items from this iconic period. Each piece showcases the movement's hallmark traits - solid wood construction, geometric forms, intricate detailing, and functional elegance.


From beautifully constructed desks to stunning wood cabinets, these items tell a story of craftsmanship and artistry that has endured the test of time. Whether you're an aficionado of design history or simply appreciate the beauty of well-crafted furniture, our Amsterdamse and Haagse School collection is a must-see.

As with any period of furniture, I prefer pieces from the earlier and humble stages of the period before they become more embellished and imitated trends.  Therefore, I have focused on those earlier pieces in our collection. Please stop by our showroom to experience the craftsmanship in person or view the items on our website to view a part of Dutch design history!
