ROOMSCAPE
Pair vintage wall brackets shelves, in cast bronze Papyrus motif, 1950`s ca, French. These items have been gently cleaned while respecting the vintage patina and are ready to use. Good size wall brackets, ideal to display a collection of glass items, china or small sculptures. The elegant & simple Modernist reinterpretation of the Egyptian Revival style of these brackets would suit a range of interiors such as Antique, Traditional, Hollywood Regency, Post Modern, or Contemporary. Each bracket is quality cast in gilt bronze and has two holes at the back to hook safely to the wall. The top portion of the shelf is of concave shape and has a brass galleried top, very useful to display items safely. The middle & bottom portion of the bracket is very decorative but simple at the same time, in a Modernist reinterpretation of the Egyptian Papyrus capital column of bundled papyrus stalks, palmettes and closed buds. Both brackets are in very good vintage condition. They are sound with no cracks. The original warm vintage patina is present adding character, with minor superficial marks in line with age and wear. They sell together and the price is for the pair.

Packing is offered free of charge. We take special professional care with packing. For safe transport the brackets will be wrapped separately in bubble wrap and an outer layer of card.Together these pieces would easily fit into a box with loose fill packing suitable for posting with a courier.

EGYPTIAN REVIVAL DESIGN

The Egyptian Revival flourished during the period 1820-1850, and was used in architecture initially for memorials, cemeteries, and official commemorative buildings. The Egyptian Revival made a comeback during the 1920`s with the Art Deco Style and the fascination with the discovery of King Tutankhamun`s tomb in 1922.

Sergio Guazzelli worked as an Architect and Interior Designer in Argentina. In 1990, he moved to Rome, where he developed and diversified his talents. The 'Eternal City' ignited his interest in antiques, leading to a Diploma in Antiques & Fine Arts. As architecture embraced art; antiques found a place in his designs.

In 1993, Sergio opened his first antiques showroom in Rome, with a second seasonal shop in Ponza, an island close to Capri. The island spirit, with her international clients, influenced his eclectic style. Following features in several magazines, Sergio established his own art & antiques publication. As a part of this, Sergio regularly visited and reported on leading European Auction Houses. It was London's art & antique scene, which drew Sergio.

In 1999, Sergio opened with his partner, Blair Thorburn, their London shop, Roomscape Vintage Furniture, in the historic Horse Hospital at The Stables Market in Camden Town. It was here that they became one of the first to propose vintage Scandinavian style to the London market. Moving forward at the beginning of the Millennium, Roomscape proposed further styles such as Hollywood Regency & Modernist glam.

Roomscape’s adventurous approach brought them to the attention of decorators including a collaboration of the launch of Liberty’s Fourth-Floor Furniture Department in 2006. Decorators not only appreciated the style but also the quality of pieces. With a wide range of contacts and 25 years of experience, Sergio & Blair source stock from abroad as well as trade fairs, private clients and auctions houses. Roomscape searches for pieces in good condition and gentle restoration is done to bring the piece to the best original vintage condition. Each piece is researched with historical detail fully presented on the website.

In 2009, Roomscape moved from a ‘traditional’ shop to a larger showroom with a stronger online presence reaching global destinations. The ‘By Appointment’ Showroom allows customers, both the trade and the public, to have the full 75m² space all to themselves for as long as they want and have a coffee with the boys. Moving from a shop has allowed a more attention to buying and sourcing abroad. It has certainly helped that Sergio is fluent in five languages.

2010 was the year Roomscape worked in partnership with Mary Portas' Living & Giving shops furnishing the Notting Hill & Primrose Hill stores. This collaboration proved charity shopping can be socially responsible, exciting and stylish at the same time. ‘Socially’ responsible in other ways, Roomscape has sourced vintage pieces for the entertainment industry such as The Union Club in Soho, London. The Union is a well established private members club and one of the first to furnish their club with vintage pieces. Most notable is their collection of Sciolari Chandeliers from Roomscape.

In 2010 Roomscape launched a great selection of 20th Century Art, mostly British artists, from the likes of Terry Frost, Richard Smith, Patrick Heron, John Piper, Victor Pasmore, Patrick Proctor, Stephen Buckey, Brendan Neiland, Patrick Caulfield and many others.

Introducing a hire service in 2011, Roomscape moved fast into Fashion, supplying Fresh Film, Cutler and Gross luxury eyeware , Elle Decoration magazine, Agent Provocateur, Miss Sixty & Bulgari

Just in time for Christmas 2012 Roomscape launched a Vintage Jewellery Collection with rare American pieces from the 1940's & 1950's, such as Trifari, Coro Craft, HAR, Renoir & Matisse, Christian Lacroix and Dior.
