Style de Vie

I’m off to a job site today but I’m leaving you with my favorite booth from the New York International Gift Fair, Style de Vie. We first noticed all the blueprints and other vintage documents covering the table and then we looked up to all the fabulous framed works and realized we needed to learn more. Jean-Christophe Hryb collects vintage graphics from around the world including maritime blueprints and trolley signs from the UK and school posters from France, in addition to matchbooks, hotel labels, scarves, maps, advertisements and more!

I love nothing more than trolling flea markets and thrift shops for vintage art but sometimes I just don’t have the time or I might be looking for a specific type of art that is hard to find so Style de Vie will definitely be a great resource! Happy Shopping!

    I agree, this is such a wonderful resource – while I love to discover prints from flea markets on my own, sometimes the time just isn’t there. This is a great find!

    Wow! I love that vintage bus roll. I’ve been on the hunt for one of this. I’m headed on over to check out their site!

    Blueprints old school. I’m a fan. Terrific link for those of us who couldn’t be there to source it ourselves. Thank you!

    Um this is pretty much the most amazing thing yet! In my own wall art development I’m going to be doing some serious research here!

    This was, hands down, my favorite booth as well! I completely happened upon it and was instantly in love! The vintage prints were just exceptional, and would make a great wall display in any home. I’m sooo happy to see you feature this vendor!

    I must have been tired as i missed quite a few of the products you featured. It is too bad that the Paris Shows and the NY shows are back to back. I guess i was in Show overdose.. thanks for such a great comprehensive post.
