Tamara and Sam worked separately for a number of years sourcing and styling pieces in private client’s homes and small commercial projects. In 2019, they realised that two heads working together were better than one. Their first joint business together was ‘Your Antique Sourcing Studio’ and in March 2020 during the first Covid lockdown, they created "Virtual Vintage Fair" on Instagram. In July 2021, they set up S&T Decorative Antiques merging their previous businesses into one.
A bit about Tamara Broido...
Tamara began her business Reclectic Vintage Interiors in 2014, after finally following her dreams, studying Decorative Art History at the V&A Museum in London and volunteering at the Georgian gem, Kenwood House. This was a big change from a career in law and advertising. With an online shop, sourcing for private and commercial clients, pop-up events and workshops, as well as styling homes, Reclectic has grown in the last few years. She loves a fusion of old and new with a mix of textures, eras and colours.
A bit about Samantha Hansard...
Samantha is an interior consultant, stylist and antique sourcing expert based in North London. She began her interior focussed business The Vintage Curator back in 2016 but in 2019 decided to focus mainly on dealing antiques.
Her love of interiors and vintage began as a child growing up with a mother who would take her, from an early age, to antique and craft fairs, as well as the odd hippy festival and who would encourage her three young girls to always be on the look out for abandoned treasures on the side of the road or in skips. Sam’s course was set (via fashion buying, University, City banking and jewellery retailing) and today she continues to help clients and corporates to make the most of their spaces.
