Our Provenance


        

Welcome to The Perfect Provenance and thank you for visiting us.  

We hope you will enjoy our site and become part of our Perfect family. Over the last 20 years, as a public relations and marketing professional, I have seen the luxury market grow rapidly around the world. Sometimes, so rapidly, it seems products just keep getting more and more expensive, but not necessarily of better quality.  Popular culture has created a mass luxury mentality where quality is no longer the driver in luxury, but labels, labels, labels. Labels and branding were originally created so you would know who made your product, and the care that went into it.  Today, in America and around the world, that ideal can seem very far away when you walk down the average main street or high street. and see sameness all around you, different logos, similar products all made for pennies.  

If you are like me, luxury isn't about the 'labels' or even price though. Luxury, is or at least, should be about the original ideal behind the product -- the quality, design, craftsmanship, uniqueness, and finally, the experience, joy if you will, of owning it. Think of the most treasured object you have bought on a vacation or a wonderful gift from a loved one.  Price and labels hardly matter.  What really matters is where you discovered it, how the fabric feels, the detail on a hand painted item looks, or the ability of a scent from a special candle to transport you to another place and time?  

 

At The Perfect Provenance, we hope you can discover a new kind of luxury, the luxury that has been around for thousands of years -- authentic luxury.  Perhaps a new artist, a beautifully designed scarf or new insight about the world around you, through our exhibitions and community we will offer.  Luxury where you know the story behind who and where your product was made. 

We invite you to join our Curators Club so we can learn more about you and your interests and lifestyle. Thank you for visiting, we wish you health and happiness, the greatest luxury of all.
