Inception and Today
The Barnebys Story
In 2011, when founders Christopher Barnekow and Pontus Silfverstolpe were looking for antiques, they realised how difficult it was to navigate around the art world. Barnebys was born. After countless hours of searching the web without any luck, they decided to start Barnebys as a single exclusive destination for all art and antiques.
Their Swedish site launched in the fall of 2011, and just a couple of months later, the majority of Scandinavian houses were affiliated with Barnebys and available just a click away. Barnebys has come a long way since then. Today, they're available in the US, UK, France, Spain, Germany, Italy, and Hong Kong, listing 1M+ items from over 2000 auction houses, dealers, and galleries.
