vintage hunter & iconic furniture curator

Meet our #CAPSULEmuse Laura, vintage hunter & iconic furniture curator at Object Dō, and her gorgeous outfits, inspired by the unique fusion of old and contemporary.


Laura, tell us about yourself: what do you do, and how do you spend your days?

My days are divided between hunting for vintage furniture and accessories for my studio Object Dō, my husband's business, our children, and life between Kaunas and Vilnius. 
Object Dō is a one-man's show, and I do everything myself, except for the restoration, which I entrust to professionals.


However, no matter how fast the pace of life is, every day I make time for sports, a book, a podcast, or a course. It may be just one of them a day, but every day..


Art and design are a huge part of your life. When was this interest born?

Art and design have been with me since childhood. My mother is an architect, and for as long as I can remember, interior design has always been one of the main topics in our home. She took me to all the exhibitions and art galleries, we went to antique shops (there was no such thing as vintage in Lithuania at the time) and new furniture stores.
My love for art grew while studying in Rome, and I found my passion for vintage while living in Norway, where I got to know Scandinavian Mid-Century furniture up close. 
My only regret is that I didn't choose to study arts at university. Now, I try to make up for it by taking various courses and studying independently.

Do not divide your clothes into daily and formal ones. If high heels are held hostage in boxes, their soles will eventually come off.


When creating your home and personal style, you mix old and new. What does vintage mean to you, and how does it help you create an authentic interior and style?

I've never wanted to be "like everyone else"; this is why I don't follow trends. A good interior, a good design, is one that is timeless. Hence, combining old and new is my signature style. Just as Mid-Century, Bauhaus, Art Deco, and today's furniture coexist perfectly in the interior, so does your great-grandmother's brooch and vintage handbag complement a classic suit.

Hunting for vintage pieces is my life and my business, but it's also my passion. That feeling when I find a gem is incomparable to anything else. It really makes my heart sing.



Do you follow the capsule wardrobe concept? If so, how do you balance it with your exclusive finds?

I don't like to burden myself and make life difficult. Having a lot of clothes is difficult and time-consuming; they all need to be maintained, repaired, cleaned, and stored.
Plus, as a rule, the more items you own, the bigger the problem of having 'nothing to wear' is.
I have a great, high-quality wardrobe base, and everything else is just accessories that I mix and match based on my mood and agenda.



What's your favorite piece by CAPSULE by Agne Gilyte?

Blue shirt ‘FLORENCE’ is my go-to piece and my favorite item from I also love mini skirts ‘ATHENS’ and ‘SANTORINI’ for the bare-legs season. And the blazer ‘PRATO’ in blue is my newest love.

What is one wardrobe rule you follow

Do not divide your clothes into daily and formal ones. If high heels are held hostage in boxes, their soles will eventually come off.
