About ReclecticEmporium

Sales 890
On Etsy since 2015


Hello, I'm Tamara and welcome to Reclectic. In 2014, I finally followed my dreams, and spent a year 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 and I could not be happier.

My home is filled with pieces that span the centuries and the globe, instilled in me by my parents and all their wonderful pieces dotting their home. Each piece intrigues me - who did it belong to, what's the story behind it? I constantly move things around my home creating eclectic displays of pieces from different times with a contemporary bit thrown in, which my husband and daughters find most amusing.

Reclectic began in late 2014, and soon friends, and friends of friends, began asking me to buy specific decorative pieces as well as styling them in their homes, to create a warm and inviting environment. A mix of contemporary style with a touch of history and creative flair thrown in. I love fusing old-world style with contemporary chic. I am based in Muswell Hill, North London and I work on residential and commercial projects. My expertise is to re-use, reorganise and refresh. The idea is to give the space, a new and fresh perspective. and creative flair, using existing items and adding new pieces, lighting and textiles too.

My time can be based on a few hours or longer - all dependent on your needs.
I source regularly for interior designers for commercial and residential projects as well as for individuals for their homes. I regularly source at fairs all over the UK and have a network with many antique and vintage dealers to help you find that unique piece. And I still love my Etsy shop where i all began.

Hope you find something you love.

    Hello. I'm Tamara and I've loved sourcing interesting pieces since childhood wandering around with my mom at antique fairs. I love a good story, a touch of whimsy with a dash of contemporary thrown in.

Returns and exchange details
If, for any reason, you are not entirely happy with your purchase, please do let me know. I try my hardest to describe and photograph the details of the vintage piece and where there are marks consistent with its age, but occasionally I may miss something.

For UK customers, I am very happy to refund the vintage piece if you are not happy with it, as long as you return it within 14 working days of delivery and in the same condition in which it left me. However, you will be responsible for the cost of returning the piece to me.

For international customers especially with the heavier and bulky items, if you are not happy with the piece, I am happy to refund the cost of the piece (not including delivery) however you will be responsible for returning the item back to me.

In the (hopefully) unlikely event that the item I send to you is damaged during delivery, I will refund your money immediately including delivery cost. Please inform me of any damages to the piece within 24 hours of delivery (no later than this) and please do hold onto the piece and send me some photographs at which stage funds will be returned via the original payment method.

Thank you so much and please don't hesitate to ask if you have any other questions.
