Gelin Casa is a design studio and furniture shop that specializes in classic old Shanghai style from the 1920s and 1930s. Full of vintage Shanghai Art Deco pieces, the store is a huge hit with expats. "The owner is involved in design and knew that people liked this old Art Deco style," assistant Angelina Ma said. "So we created this showroom and over the years, demand for this style has become much higher." Small pieces such as clocks and fans are available for around 1,000 yuan (US$160.5). Larger items like vintage sofas cost between 4,500 and 8,000 yuan. "It's an interesting style that is very different from the Art Deco movement in Europe," Ma said. In addition, Gelin Casa stock a variety of new designs, such as coat racks, that complement the classic style. Customized orders are available and the store brings antique pieces to the showroom as it acquires them.
