About us, me, here - this site


First, let's begin with a '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 across Vintage, Antique and Contemporary, as well as the unusually beautiful.

We hope you enjoy this site as much as we've enjoyed putting it together. What is featured here is regularly updated, so please do stay connected via email or 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 stereotypes.

"I'm neither one thing nor the other, I'm probably most like a Smörgåsbord. The East-meeting-West upbringing has blurred and brought down a lot of boundaries and I'm not a strict fan of any one particular discipline.

I am, however, endlessly fascinated by what inspires an artist or a company to go on to design and create their work. I enjoy learning about their values and creative process, as well as appreciating the individual pieces for what they are.

I'm delighted when I discover inner beauty and influenced by the Japanese philosophy of Wabi-Sabi as well as the concept of continual self-evolution. 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 find mesmerising Art Ware spanning across many mediums and will encounter mesmerising art glass, stunning ceramics, kooky curios, and even the odd succulent plant grown personally by me.

My mission is for this ‘attic’ to be a culture parlour - for you to bring your inner culture vulture to for some deep, immersive and at times, even self-indulgent pampering.

I hope you enjoy your stay with us,"
