Oblomov Art is an idea. A story. A collection. We love vintage items, curiosities and antiques. It is an experience. Traveling. Searching for hidden gems in remote villages, to make people all over the world happy. To connect. To share the stories of the people we buy the items from. Ordinary items which have been used in the past tell a story, they resemble a feeling. Joy, sadness, historic events, ideas, thoughts about bright futures. We like to share these stories with you.
Oblomov Art has also started to focus on Mid-Century Modern design, small furniture and antiques. The search continues but we occasionally stay a little closer to home.
Any questions? Don't hesitate to contact us!
