Mothology.com is an online store with fine vintage furnishings and inspired decor objects from many countries. We travel the world on pilgrimages to search for the unique and unusual. Our vintage decorative objects can add to many room designs and evoke emotions. We love the hunt. We've recovered old bee's hives from fields in Northern Europe and, in the farmhouses, found ledgers and letters penned long ago still folded in their tender envelopes. We are designers and manufacturers of furnishings, lighting products, mirrors and garden accessories. We also design and fabricate linens, paper products, glassware and metal objects. Mothology provides a customer login for ease of shopping and a mailing list for new and existing customers to receive information on future product lines and sale items. Mothology has a unique environment with a scratch-dent store available to visit in the west midtown area of Atlanta by appointment only. Please email: info@mothology.com for details.

Mothology feels a bit like Anthropologie's rebellious, slightly gothic, older sister. With a mix of vintage finds and handcrafted wares with a rough hewn quality, every piece promises to bring a little character to your home and even shake things up a bit.

Mothology both travels to find antiquities to incorporate into their shop, they also design and create their own in lines in-house. This two fold approach allows them to both collect and cultivate an aesthetic that is all their own. With everything from hand-painted dishes and talon candlesticks to ornately carved mirrors and furniture upholstered in linen, if you are looking for pieces that standout this is a great place to start looking.
