5 places to buy modern antique furniture in Rome

1) Under the Influence

In this eclectic gallery, conceived in 2014 by Vittorio Mango, you’ll find mostly objects from the 1940s to the 1980s, where equal attention is devoted to design, mid-century modern pieces, and the more classic. Among the featured names are some of the most sought-after American, French and Italian designers, like Adrian Pearsall and Vladimir Kagan.

2) Binario4

This artisanal workshop is proof that refurbished furniture can often outshine the trendiest new models. If you are looking for something more stylish, Silvana Fantino has a cool selection of French and Piedmontese pieces, and Danish design items from the 1950s–60s–70s.

3) Alain

A mix between a shop, a lab, and an atelier, this space offers unique pieces ranging from the 1920s to the 1980s that the owner personally selects and restores, or that he himself produces. From lamps to tables, from chairs to sculptures, the objects here seem to turn into artworks.

4) Lamps 60

The name could be somewhat misleading, as there’s so much more than just lamps in this 200-square-metre gallery. Besides lighting, the owners Camilla and Fabrizio propose an ample selection of furniture, chairs, and various objects, dating from the 1950s through the 1970s. Best to book an appointment in advance.

5) Re(f)use

An experimental and conceptual shop, where everything is created with waste materials that are recycled and reused into new cool objects. Each piece is handmade, mostly by Italian artisans, and comes with a tag explaining its history and provenance.
