The Silk Road Collection

About the brand

In 2004, Margret brought together a small curated selection of Chinese antiques that would grow rapidly into the enormous collection of unique objects and furniture called The Silk Road Collection.

The full collection has an Asian timelessness, a soul. It often features a weathered look and un understated elegance which can be integrated in any kind of interior. It includes antiques, authentic objects or newly made products.

About the philosophy

Their philosophy merges perfectly with our wabi-sabi philiosophy. Many of their objects bear the marks of time, but their attractiveness seems to grow with any additional imperfection. weathered surfaces, traces of paint, smoothed edges through repeated usage, uneven patinas, handmade objects,… And all these time-made imperfections add to the overall charm of an object.

A lot of products comes from Asia. Asia is a source of countless rich cultures and traditions. They combine old with new, soberness with colour, details with simplicity, and East with West.

About the products

Old furniture and decorative objects are marked by their use or daily handling which gives them a distinctive charm. They, in turn, spread that charm to any interior in which they are placed.

At least twice a year they go on a large sourcing trip to Asia were they take time and effort to find treasures. We select object and furniture on their unique appearance, but also for their authenticity and quality.

Most objects and furniture in our collection are antique, which means they already existed during the tumultuous last years of the Chinese Qing dynasty.
