If you’ve never been to Artifacts and Company vintage furniture Long Beach Island, it’s time to plan a visit! The overall beachy art vibe in the store is full of inspiration, and their products and pieces will have your space looking perfectly nautical and modern!
A little shop called Artifacts and Company
Artifacts and Company is a dream come true for lovers of art, home design, and vintage treasures- all year round. Located on Bay Avenue in Beach Haven, Long Beach Island, this shop is truly a one of a kind experience, filled with wonders both old and new. Artifacts and Company is carefully curated by owner Amy Haeberlein. Her mother was an artist, which inspired Amy’s love of art and interior design. It’s easy to see that creativity and good taste runs in the family.
Services offered at Artifacts and Company
Since opening in Long Beach Island, Artifacts and Company has expanded in size as well as services and products offered. New features include:
- a floral market
- in-home design
- styling and event design
- classes for both children and adults
- stockist for Annie Sloan Chalk Paint
From large stately pieces like mantles and armoires to smaller yet equally charming items, like children’s classic story books, there is always something waiting to be found here. Walking throughout the store, it’s easy to find treasures from the past, but it’s hard to leave empty handed.
The Vintage Furniture Long Beach Island vibe
The store itself is a vintage-lover’s dream, featuring antique-style lighting, hardware, shelving, mantles, books, wall art, and furniture pieces both large and small. Artifacts and Company also features paintings by local artists, jewelry and accessories, handmade art pieces, wall decorations, and vintage artwork.
Support local artists
There is a small art gallery in the front of the store where Amy Haeberlein features local artists, whose paintings echo Long Beach Island’s unique beach town vibe, with scenes of beaches and sailboats on the bay. Vintage furniture sold at Artifacts and Company is different than many other vintage retailers, as many pieces are typically sold “as is” and can leave much to be desired. Here, when pieces can’t be restored, they are painted or repurposed. Vintage pieces are carefully styled and displayed, and though the store is full of treasures, it is easy to move through with plenty of room, another way that Artifacts and Company is different from a typical vintage furniture Long Beach Island store.
Professionally restored vintage furniture
Furniture restoration is an art form that is not so easy to master, despite what Pinterest or any DIY blog will tell you. Vintage or antique furniture is typically not found in mint condition, nor does it stylistically fit in with today’s design trends. It takes a special set of skills, and a good bit of know-how to properly restore vintage pieces. You’ll also need certain products to take those old, musty pieces and transform them into desirable pieces that will fit into the design of today’s trendiest of beach houses. The furniture for purchase at Artifacts and Company is all one-of-a-kind.
Quality products and training for DIY
One of the essential components of furniture revival and restoration is the choice of products that are used in the process. Artifacts and Company is what is known as a “stockist” for Annie Sloan Chalk Paint, the “it” product for furniture restorers, and is a product that can only be found in independent shops and small businesses. This particular Chalk Paint is known for its high quality, smooth matte finish and the process by which it is applied. In addition to selling this exclusive product line, Artifacts and Company offers workshops, at both beginner and intermediate levels. You can learn different techniques and proper application of Annie Sloan Chalk Paint, and restyle your own pieces. (Make your next project a success, rather than another Pinterest fail!)
Get DIY inspired or hire some help
The styling within Artifacts and Company is light, cohesive, and a perfectly balanced beach vibe… not too much, and not too little. It’s quite amazing how modern art pieces in driftwood frames can fit so perfectly together with restored furniture and vintage lighting, and through Artifacts and Company’s event styling, you can bring this beautiful aesthetic to your own wedding or special event. Often times, details are the key pieces to creating a personalized and stylish space, and it is easy to imagine how the styling by Artifacts and Company would beautifully enhance any event, even those with different styles and themes. Amy Haeberlein also offers in-home design services through her store, and clients can boast of truly unique, one-of-a-kind pieces that add a personalized touch in any home.
