About us, me, here - this site

Welcome

Thank you for visiting us. Pieces featured here have been highly curated and researched to provide as much background information as possible (and sensible).

Our love for design spans Vintage, Antique, and Contemporary, as well as the unusually beautiful.

We hope you enjoy what we have to share as much as we've enjoyed putting it together. What is featured is regularly updated, so please do stay connected via social media to be notified of the latest additions.

A message from Anye:
This 'attic' is founded by a quirky British-born Chinese who is between cultures and away from stereotypes.

"I'm neither one thing nor the other, I'm probably most like a Smörgåsbord. The East-meeting-West upbringing has blurred as well as brought down many boundaries, resulting in broad spectrum of love for design across the ages and cultures. I'm also endlessly fascinated by what inspires an artist or a company and what fuels the creativity in their work. I enjoy learning about their values and creative process, as well as mindfully appreciating the individual pieces themselves.

I'm delighted whenever I discover inner beauty and very much influenced by the Japanese philosophy of Wabi-Sabi. I love encountering new and old ideas for what is beautiful, from the classic and iconic to the quirky and unconventional.

In my attic, you're most likely to encounter captivating Art Ware spanning across many mediums such as mesmerising art glass, stunning ceramics, kooky curios, and maybe even the odd succulent plant grown personally by me."
