Urban Vintage Spotlight: HangarOne Design

Lynda Bryant-Comstock of HangarOne Design

Describe your style, influences, inspiration, and what you plan to bring:
At HangarOne Design, mid century modern and vintage pieces receive an expert makeover to provide distinctive, one-of-a-kind high quality furnishings.
This is more than a business, it is a passion. Passion for great form, structure and style. Passion for sourcing solidly built and well formed furniture. Passion for fabric that will bring life back to an old chair. Creating a stylish look by finding the right chair paired with the right fabric makes my heart sing.
I am inspired by the lines of the chair, the manufacturing process that created it, the years of patina and the bold fabric to give it new beginnings.

Who are your style crushes/vintage icons/fashion muses, and why/how do they influence you?:
My style crushes are not mainstream, they are the women and men who work in the vintage upholstery industry that bring talent, creative flair and updated style to make a piece of chair art. They help me push beyond my limits in terms of upholstery as well as bold design. They encourage me to be whimsical, classical, and extraordinary.

Everybody has that thing that got away, what’s the purchase you never made that still sometimes keeps you awake at night?:
The Eames chair that I simply walked by – sigh….

Where can customers usually shop your wares:
At the shop: 3401 University Dr., Durham NC, online, and at shows.

Urban Vintage Spotlight: Patina Novum

Camilah Jennings of Patina Novum

Describe your style, influences, inspiration, and what you plan to bring:
My style is all about making ‘vintage’ contemporary, or making old things new. I love finding unused, discarded, ugly old material and turning them into beautiful one-of-a-kind pieces that fit in most any home! Patina Novum’s collections take on a hyper-natural color scheme. Most of the pieces are rooted in a neutral palette, with pops of rich color, which goes well in most any interior. The most popular pieces are the coaster sets made from old tiles and cast concrete, and the soft goods like pillows and oven mitts.

Everybody has that thing that got away, what’s the purchase you never made that still sometimes keeps you awake at night?:I’m just a sucker for anything one-of-a-kind or with a history or story. I have to leave something knowing that there’s literally never a chance to grab it again!

Where can customers usually shop your wares:
On website, social Media and Pop Up Markets.

Urban Vintage Spotlight: From Lillian

Mamie Wilkins of From Lillian

Describe your style, influences, inspiration, and what you plan to bring:
I’m obsessed with old, loved, weathered things, especially jewelry (and people)! My mom IS the Lillian who influenced my shop. She had great style and finished it all off with amazing vintage costume jewelry. I plan to have grab bags for makers, display pieces, vintage handbags, and other great items at UV, but mostly really lovely costume jewelry for you to mix with your 3 ct diamond and that necklace your 5-year-old made you.

Who are your style crushes/vintage icons/fashion muses, and why/how do they influence you?:
I really love that old gal and style icon, Iris Apfel. She knows exactly how to pair clothing and jewelry pieces so that she’s turning heads! She can take cheap pieces and allow them to mingle with real collector pieces and for her, it simply works!

Everybody has that thing that got away, what’s the purchase you never made that still sometimes keeps you awake at night?:
Hmmm. SO much jewelry, but probably the most beautiful huge old weathered cabinet that would have made a most beautiful display cabinet.

Where can customers usually shop your wares:
Online and at shows.
