Catrinette, a vintage design store located in one of Vienna's trendiest neighborhoods, is a niche boutique known for its curated collection of antique and vintage items. The store is the brainchild of Katharina Marchgraber, a seasoned art historian who graduated from Christie's Education in Paris and is the daughter of renowned Austrian antique dealer, Antiquitäten Erwin Marchgraber.
Inaugurated in 2012, Catrinette reflects Katharina's passion for collecting extraordinary objects and turning that passion into a thriving career. The selection process is personal and meticulous, with Katharina herself choosing each piece that finds a place in the store. The items are primarily from cities rich in history and culture such as Paris, New York, Copenhagen, Berlin and Vienna.
The store specializes in interiors from the 1900s to the 1980s, offering a diverse yet specialized collection spread over 100 square meters of retail space. One notable aspect of the collection is Katharina's assortment of lamps, which demonstrates her penchant for pieces that have the potential to redefine a room's ambiance. Catrinette also offers an eclectic selection of jewelry, but her focus remains on mid-twentieth-century pieces, primarily from the 1950s and 1960s.
The uncluttered presentation is an outstanding feature of Catrinette. Items are neatly arranged to facilitate browsing, a thoughtful departure from the clutter often found in typical thrift stores. This thoughtful presentation style emphasizes the uniqueness of each item, allowing individual pieces to capture the attention of the discerning shopper.
Catrinette prides itself on offering distinctive, rare and carefully selected items, ensuring that customers have access to pieces that represent uniqueness and a rich historical essence. Each item, whether it is a mahogany nightstand, a 1970's terracotta lampshade, or a geometric silver vase, is carefully selected to ensure that it brings a unique charm and history to any living space.
