Take a look at these Instagram accounts for reams of visually-inspiring antiques

We all love discovering new Instagram accounts to follow. Check out these hand-picked feeds for reams of visually-inspiring antiques…

The Old Cinema

The Chiswick-based antiques department store deals out of an old cinema building (hence the name). Follow it for behind-the-scenes snaps of its impressive stock and brilliantly off-the-wall vintage finds. @theoldcinemalondon


Member of LAPADA and specialist in decorative antiques, James Gooch at Doe & Hope prides himself on a unique style, describing it as ‘a concoction of old money, dramatic decorative and faded gentility’. If that doesn’t make you want to follow its romantic and moody feed on Instagram, we can’t think what will. @doeandhope


RE (as in, ‘RE-found Objects’) was born in a converted workshop in rural Northumberland in 2003 and continues to provide some of the quirkiest one-off pieces on the market. Its Instagram is a mixture of shots of the shop and of their unusual salvaged and recycled products. @refoundobjects

The Mint List

The Mint List is a riot of quirky vintage and antique finds, accessories, furniture and homeware. Follow the Instagram for its latest products, lifestyle pictures – and if you can spot them, the occasional man with a decorated beard. If you tag them in your own shot, they might use your photo, and who doesn’t love a bit of audience participation? @themintlist

Decorative Antiques UK

This East Sussex-based antiques shop specialises in European antiques and is owned by Minnie Craske. Follow her on Instagram for beautifully curated photography, sneak-peeks at her latest products and a couple of very cute dogs. @decorativeantiquesuk


This online antiques powerhouse not only sells a huge range of stunning pieces but has an inspiring Instagram account too. Follow it for lashings of antiques ideas from the best dealers and interior designers all over the world. @1stDibs


Lassco’s Ropewalk branch is found in the creative hub of London’s Maltby Street. The weekend market hosts a wealth of fun finds and this is reflected in an Instagram account of old shots of London, stylish salvage, and many desirable old chairs. @lasscoropewalk

Miss Mustard Seed

The Instagram account of American blogger, paint designer and antiques dealer Marian is awash with bright and airy design ideas. Whether it’s snapshots from her antique dealing endeavours at fairs and shows, or pictures of her own muted blue-and-white space, it’s certainly worth a scroll.  @missmustardseed
