The New Antiquarians

The New York Times introduced “The New Antiquarians” to the world this week with an article featuring this growing subculture of young antique collectors. While they focused on a 19th century Ralph Lauren-esque aesthetic, diehard antique collectors under 30 are devoted to a number of eras beyond the word of Victorian exoticism and oddities. With a large part of young generations only willing to invest enough money into furniture to afford Ikea, any appreciation for antiquated aesthetics is a step towards our generation appreciating the history and value of antique objects.
