Page: About — The Empty Apartment


The Empty Apartment is a space for finding unique art and design pieces that celebrate quality, function and beauty. I believe there is nothing more valuable than history and honesty. We celebrate Scandinavian Modern design as timeless and are inspired by the dedication to craftsmanship that took place in the mid-century. Art should be engaging, thought provoking and moving; design should be story telling.

Your home should be your own personal museum, a place to build your collection and tell your stories. Display who you are, make it personal.

Welcome to The Empty Apartment, I hope you will be inspired to explore and collect.
