At American Vintage, we are huge fans of design and household objects in our stores, at our head office, but also via our partner Toulon Design Parade. To celebrate this passion and bring it into your home, here is our selection of five original objects spotted on Instagram accounts and in e-shops of indie designers. The perfect way to add a touch of joy, wherever you live.

Like a modern-day online antiquer, Mattina Moderna offers a savvy vintage selection on Instagram. The must-have object? Graphic lamps to place on a coffee table or shelf for a dash of design that is simply… illuminating.


Homemade candles by Nata Concept Store

Founded by Anna and Tatianna, the NATA concept store creates its own candles. Clouds, vases, columns or stairs take form in soy wax, enhanced with natural dyes, to enliven a bookcase or dress up a centrepiece.

Printed Goods is the brainchild of brothers George and Raphael Greaves. Wavering between surrealism and a peaceful atmosphere, their world plays out on large- and medium-format posters to hang on the wall.


Bedding by Crisp Sheets

To travel without leaving your bed, slip into some Crisp Sheets. Founded by Lara Ourtane, the brand transforms sleep into a sensory experience with its slightly textured “crisp” cotton in soft and inviting colours.


Cement creations by Lava Objects

Based in Barcelona, Laura Aguilar explores materials and colours by hand to create her cement decorative accessories with Lava Objects. Her plates, candleholders and knickknacks bring a touch of raw authenticity to your table.
