Meet The Vintage Glamour Experts

Our crazy journey began when we met through the Cincinnati Junior League and quickly realized we had very similar styles. Our love of vintage glamour and Hollywood Regency brought us together and led us to building several successful businesses in the interior design industry.

While styling our homes we soon discovered that there was nowhere to purchase high-end materials or accessories. Recognizing the growing need for quality products we soon opened up our design shop, Tassels. Our small house turned store was filled with fabrics, lamps and decorative accessories. As time went on and we built our client base they started to ask us to take over their projects. “Can you just do it?” “Can you come over and pick out the fabrics?”

Next thing you know we closed the shop and set up as interior decorators under the name Shanahan Wildermuth Interiors. We spent the next decade styling homes around Cincinnati and won a Best of Cincinnati interior design award. Interior design is a complex industry. It can take months to order an item, have it shipped to a dock, unpackaged and delivered to a home. With the economy circling the drain we were having a difficult time finding good quality case goods for our clients.

So, we turned to our own backyard right here in Cincinnati. We began searching for quality, brand name, vintage items we could fix up and have in our client’s homes in half the time. (Stay tuned as we will delve into creating one-of-a-kind pieces in future posts) By lacquering the pieces ourselves we cut the turn around time nearly in half. We soon realized there was an entire market for updated vintage furniture. We began selling our one-of-a-kind items online.  With our new furniture division, SWI Vintage, we quickly became one of the top selling vintage vendors online.
