VINTAGE INSPIRED DESIGN.

 

Old as Adam can help you find the perfect vintage elements for your project, but also offers interior and concept design, branding, graphic design, and event planning—all guided by a passion for history and the material past. Let us show you how something old can inspire something new, fresh and unique to fit your personal or business needs.

Commercial Design

Working on a new restaurant, retail or hotel project? Old as Adam helps clients find the right vintage fixtures and decor to make your space one of kind with a distinctive antique look. Furniture, counters, clothing racks, shelving, architectural salvage, wall decor: We buy and sell all kinds of items, and can specifically search for the pieces you need to achieve the look necessary to set your business apart.

But Old as Adam can help with more than just furnishing antiques. If you want to capture a specific atmosphere and aesthetic, we can assist in the design process, develop a concept design or create a complete design for you. Inspired by the look of a barbershop, c. 1910? Or like the feel of a Victorian library, c. 1880? We can help you achieve a cohesive design, whether it’s a period-perfect 1930s bistro or a modern retail space with key vintage elements. Contact us.

 

Branding & Graphic Design

Using vintage materials as a springboard, Old as Adam also offers branding consultation and graphic design. Articulate and unify your brand with a tradename and aesthetic presence that stands apart from the competition, aligns with your values, and dovetails every aspect of your work. Whether brick and mortar or online, we can help you develop an authentic and timeless business identity your customers won’t forget.

Our graphic design services fit within this comprehensive branding or stand alone. Signage, business cards, letterhead, website design consultation: With our extensive library of rare vintage typography and historic images, we can make your brand stand out as timeless, whether on paper or from the sidewalk. Contact us.

 

Projects at Home

Need a specific item to complete a look? Restoring an antique house or building around reclaimed architectural elements? Designing a new garden? Old as Adam can help find or guide you to the right pieces you need. We work with individuals and interior decorators to find pieces to fit particular themes or spaces—the search is what we live for.

We also have a passion for historic buildings and traditional architecture, and can consult on restoration or new construction incorporating period elements, guiding homeowners to the right sources for antique components appropriate for their project. Contact us.

 

Event & Game Creation

Planning a personal or corporate event? Old as Adam specializes in creating vintage events, planning occasions which capture both the aesthetic appearance and experiential sense of another time. Whether it’s making it count on a special day such as a birthday party or wedding or creating an unforgettable experience at a business retreat or benefit, traveling in time by way of vintage costume, music and settings can be a wonderful way for people to come together. Among many other events, Old as Adam hosts Gatsby on the Isles, a 1920s weekend party at a historic island hotel in New Hampshire, which includes everything from vintage games, period-appropriate cocktail menus, authentic music and dancing. Whether it’s 1850 or 1950 or set to particular theme, we have access to the props, locations, and performers to make your event a humdinger.

Within a vintage context, Old as Adam also conceives and designs creative theme parties and experiential games just for fun or to provide unique contexts for people to meet and get to know one another. Working with professional event and game design partners, we craft custom experiences which involve more than typical “dinner theater,” involving a cast of characters assigned to guests, plot twists, tasks, puzzles and objectives, all following a thematic thread and as involved or casual as the customer likes. The basis for an experiential event might come from anywhere: Jules Verne science fiction, Agatha Christie murders in mansions, Jeeves & Wooster hijinks, classic Hollywood horror, and commissioned subjects bringing specific histories, ideas, characters and places to life. Let’s make your event extraordinary. Contact us.
