Natural Antiques And Collectible Objects make Up The Primitive Organic Look At Queen Anne Antiques, Canton, CT

Queen Anne Antiques, Canton, CT Features "Primitive Organic Style"

Here is a  new term I have been introduced to at Queen Anne Antiques in Canton, CT....."Primitifve Organic". That is how April, the owner of this wonky shop on Route 44 now describes her small but always chock filled shop. April's shop has gone through quite a metamorphorsis over the eyes. She has also moved her store several times and I follow her wherever she goes. Each time she makes a move, her shop changes and that is the fun part.

Primitive Modern Decorating With Collectibles

On a recent visit to April, I did indeed notice that her shop was looking a little different. She explained that she calls it "Primitive Organic". I have heard some people describe this type of decorating style as "Primitive Modern" or "Urban Organic".
You get the point, two or more different
decorating styles are combining featuring an updated version of a familiar yet vintage look.

Decorating With Natural Objects

In the case of the marriage of "Primitive" and "Organic" you will find lots of natural materials such as woods, twines, textiles, baskets, boxes, ceramics, handmade and functional
objects used.

The style has a very tropical or travelled influence. Yet there are also the additions of what we think of as "Primitives" such as tinware, metal containers, early collectibles and antiques.
