“My desire is to create art using home furnishings as my medium of expression. I want people to have a personal connection with the upholstery art they choose for their home. I want each Antiquate piece to be something that speaks to them, and entices them to slow down and to simply enjoy being.” — Kerri Hollingsworth

Kerri Hollingsworth is the director and upholstery artist behind Antiquate. Her philosophy is to create unique and timeless art that are high quality and also environmentally friendly.
“My work is more than just making armchairs or wall hangings. It’s about tuning into nature, it’s about presence. What I do is an opportunity to connect with my inner creativity and express that powerful energy into furnishings or a furniture piece that impacts its owner’s heart, body and soul.” — Kerri Hollingsworth
Most days, her daughter Betty keeps her company as she weaves textiles and fabrics into artistic creations. Kerri hopes that by immersing Betty in this space, it will foster an environmentally conscious mindset, and a deeper awareness of the power we each have to shape trajectory of our planet.
