For this issue, we chose two shops that will give your home some nostalgic air, and if you haven’t settled yet, there’s a new place called Oliver that makes feeling at home a cinch.
To feel like you’ve arrived in a new city, the main thing is to feel at home there. At Oliver the apartments and studios are designed to give you just that. The 20 to 45 square meter living spaces combine modern design geared toward comfort, with a homey atmosphere, which makes them perfect for long-term stays. The apartment building, right in Vienna’s hip 6th district, gives you quick access to the U-Bahn lines U4 and U6, not to mention fantastic shops, restaurants and bars. So if you’re new in Vienna and don’t want to waste any time before you start discovering your new home, Oliver is ready to welcome you.

Ever wondered where your friends are getting all of their vintage furniture? If it’s authentic, it’s probably from Vintagerie. Owners Ali and Peter have collected well-preserved furniture dating from the 1930s to the 1980s. They carry many one-of-a-kind items, as well as iconic pieces like Eames or van der Rohe chairs. They also have a notebook in which you can describe exactly what you are looking for and they will keep an eye out for it when they go scouting. Don’t give up after your first visit. Ali and Peter get new pieces all the time, so every visit is a pleasant surprise.

Having a custom picture frame made can be quite expensive and pricing can seem arbitrary. Your pictures and paintings deserve better – and that’s what Moritz Wohlleb set out to change when he
launched Frameshore in March 2017. They offer affordable, custom-made frames in nearly any design imaginable. Wohlleb comes from a family of frame makers, dating back to 1869. He started working at his father’s workshop when he was only 10 years old and has become the “go-to guy” for crafting the perfect frame without breaking the bank.
