Charming furniture, lighting and decor that evoke feelings of nostalgia
Authentic Models is a testament to the endearing spirit of adventure and exploration of our founder Haring Piebenga. At an early age, he possessed a curiosity and affinity for antiques and artifacts that had interesting stories to tell. Now, nearly fifty years later, the company is represented in over sixty countries worldwide.
Products of a rich imagination
Traveling around the globe has continually exposed Haring to new tales of intrigue and triumphs of the human spirit. All the while, his discerning eye for the eclectic and aesthetically pleasing, has led to the development of a rich array of products inspired by cartography, the “Age of Sail” and man’s quest to discover the unknown. Authentic Models’ artisans use time-honored techniques to painstakingly craft accurate replicas of a wide range of historical furniture, lighting and decor items. It is this commitment to authenticity that sets us apart. Authentic Models' campaign furniture, nautically themed items, model planes and boats are presented with minute details that are true to the era and original design.
Original and timeless
Our historic accent tables, lounge chairs and floor lamps are not merely functional items that you see every day. The craftsmanship and love of nostalgia are evident in the level of detail Authentic Models puts into each piece. Secret compartments, intricate closures and classic aged finishes take you back in time. Additionally, you can clearly see and feel the high quality of the materials we use, giving you the confidence that your home furnishings will bring smiles and compliments for years to come.
