“My desire is to create chairs that people have a personal connection with. I want these chairs to be something in their home that really speaks to them, and entices them to slow down and to simply enjoy being.” — Kerri Hollingsworth
Antiquate has been featured in UK’s Scarlett Opus, Turkish Home Art, Yarra Valley & Ranges, Indie Road and Junkies magazine.
Kerri Hollingsworth is the director and upholstery artist behind Antiquate. Her philosophy is to create unique and timeless upholstery designs that are high quality and also environmentally friendly.
Kerri’s strong passion for creative design, sustainability and making an effort to reduce her environmental footprint, is why Antiquate is making waves in the design world.
“My work is more than just making armchairs. It’s about tuning into nature, it’s about presence. It’s an opportunity to connect with my inner creativity and express that powerful energy into a furniture piece that impacts its owner’s heart, body and soul.” — Kerri Hollingsworth
Her intention is to make positive shifts within the design industry, and help reduce unnecessary waste in the process. While the vision is to always be creating home furnishings that people fall in love with.
Most days, her daughter Betty keeps her company as she weaves textiles and fabrics into artistic armchair 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.
