Home Tour: tech entrepreneur Sandrine invites us into her London home.

Meet Sandrine, the CEO of Vinterior! As the founder of the UK’s leading marketplace for vintage and antique furniture, it’s no wonder that her London home is also bursting with unique vintage finds. An eclectic mix of 20th century design – from Marcel Breuer’s sleek Wassily chair to the 70s Togo sofa – this home is filled with houseplants, artwork and a regal British Shorthair by the name of Misifu.
