Welcome to our rebellious partner Rock the Heirloom
A major influence in any maximalists design is the curation of vintage antiques, family heirlooms and personal treasures.
You may have well seen some glorious pieces of vintage homewares and antiques appearing in our Vintage Finds section in recent months so we thought it time to introduce you to Amy and her business Rock the Heirloom.
The passion that connects us is a good old fashioned love of old pieces that find new leases of life in modern settings. Keeping treasures that reflect a past life and inspire us today.
Meet Amy Eld, the owner of Rock the Heirloom. Antiques rock her world, and she is driven to promote vintage antiques and mix them up to create a relaxed, unorthodox and uniquely stylish look. Rock the Heirloom is a true reflection of Amy's fabulous style, carefully curated selection of beautiful, quirky and unique pieces that will make you smile.
Be brave, be bold and, above all, be you.
As Amy says, "As a self-confessed antiques disruptor, I want to show you how antiques can be modern, edgy and accessible. I want to make the process of adding lovely one-off antique items into your home an easy and enjoyable experience." She is skilled at mixing old and new items into interior schemes with a treasure trove of lighting, soft furnishings and antique furniture, both online and from her showroom in Surrey. Amy has antiques in her DNA and her antique dealer grandparents educated her in the art of uncovering intriguing pieces that have enjoyed a past life and are ready to be loved by someone else.

These beautiful vintage demijohns have been used to store wine or fruit liqueurs over the centuries. How will you use yours? Demijohn originally refers to any glass vessel with a large body and small neck, enclosed in wickerwork.
The word comes from the french Dame-Jeanne, literally meaning "Lady Jane". The story goes that in 1347, the Queen Jane was expelled from her kingdom and went to take refuge in the Provence region of France. Walking through the towns of Grasse and Draguigan, she came across a gentleman glass blower. The queen asked to be shown the glassblowing. Nervous in the presence of royalty, the glassworker blew in the bit of his cane, and overdid the blowing and produced an enormous bottle, which was admired by all for its volume of about ten litres. It caused so much admiration that he decided to start manufacturing those big flasks and called them Reine Jeanne, but the Queen suggested modestly to give them the name of Dame Jeanne, instead. To protect this big bottle, the glass blower dressed it in wicker.
