Ode to the Battered and Tattered

Comfortable, worn and often tattered can be incorporated easily into a variety of decorating styles

The appeal of a piece is in its natural aging, not in the false creation of the appearance of age, which sadly is to be found in many mainstream stores these days – Pure Provenance specializes in real old versus fake old.

Objects with a real history and a defect or two are so much more appealing

Natural wear and tear that occurs over time gives individuality and character to pieces that cannot be acquired through your typical mainstream d├ęcor shop.  Hence the need for a destination store such as Pure Provenance, purveyors of true vintage wares.

Discovering and photographing the beauty in the faded, decayed and crumbling facades of old buildings is a long term passion of mine.

Pieces such as this, help create the perfect outdoor living room

Faded furnishings such as this make for a cosy and comfortable home
