Welcome to our store. My name is Lara and I’m the owner/ curator of Inventif Designs. I started Inventif Designs in 2003 with a few breaks here and there. I have a passion for vintage and antique items and keeping history alive. I love finding long forgotten items that need a little TLC or just a polishing and bringing them back to their former glory so that they can be cherished once again by their new owners.
I find my items through estate sales, auctions, flea markets, garage sales or anywhere else I can find treasures from the past. I will spend hours carefully polishing and cleaning a tea set or restoring a neglected item just so that it’s at its best for my Inventif Designs customers.
Most vintage and antique items aren’t made anymore. That’s what makes them so unique and special. A gorgeous silver tea set or candelabra like those seen on your favorite British show can add such elegance to your décor. Or a vintage item similar to one you had growing up can bring such nostalgia.
Our items have been used in designers’ photoshoots, Netflix series, Network miniseries and television shows, movies and stage plays. Our items have also been featured in home decorating magazines and popular blogs.
I want everyone that buys from Inventif Designs to be as happy with their unique, handpicked items as I was when I found them.
