Over the past decade at Old Glory, we have worked hard + happily to develop what has become our signature "look," and we are finally putting everything down on paper! We wanted to create one grand and concrete definition that captures both how we approach interior design and our distinctive design identity (the final product). So we are proud to formally introduce OLD GLORY STYLE!
We believe that home should make you happy. We believe in creating beautiful, comfortable, and personal spaces. We believe in functional, but not all work and no play. Our look is substantive + genuine with a splash of playfulness. Our work is inspired by our:
It's no secret that we love old things at Old Glory. Antiques have a story to tell, and they effortlessly and unassumingly add so much warmth and love to a home. Their one-of-a-kindness lends a sense of heritage and history, comfort and well-worn authenticity to our daily lives. They can bring to mind happy memories and imagined stories of past uses and owners and they gladly welcome us to add on our own stories and memories. Old, well-loved pieces are the foundation of OLD GLORY STYLE, and we love helping our customers embrace their own love of old.
Closely connected to our love of old, we seek out authenticity in everything we do, starting with our own aesthetics at the store, for our customers, and in our own home. We strive for functional design that inspires and encourages, that is ever-changing to fit the needs and styles of our customers, and that has distinct personalty. Authenticity means working hard to find and create the uncommon, the unexpected, and the beautiful. This ideal also extends beyond just our design work, and in turn continually influences our design work: act authentically and your work will reflect that kindness, creativity, and truthfulness. At Old Glory, good design is original + hard working, just like we always strive to be.
We have always been drawn to anything and everything creative. From our kids' art projects from school and summers off, to our favorite artists and creators, to our own lifelong projects and goals, creativity drives us every day and constantly shapes our approach to design. Good design should actively inspire, rather than just sit quietly in a room to be seen. Art is living, and interior design should be alive as well, from inception to the finished project. It should be dynamic, ever-changing, and imaginative, and reflect the hard but worthwhile work of creativity. Above all, we love to have fun and remember that we love what we do.
We search for the one-of-a-kind, the curious, the quirky, selecting pieces for the mix and not the match. We blend our love of well-worn furnishings full of soul + history with our devotion to the new, the now, the next.
Thoughtfully selected, carefully curated, always inspiring.
Over the next few weeks + months, we will be using our blog to highlight the elements of our Old Glory style and sharing our approach to design and how we carry out Old Glory style in our daily lives, at the store and at home. We love what we do, and we can't wait to share just how we do it.
