sailing through history with miniature ship replicas
Ship models have captured the imaginations of people young and old. We imagine ourselves captaining or perhaps crewing on these diminutive, yet amazingly accurate representations of full-sized ships. Cruisers, sloops, yachts and racing ships gathered together in maritime museums or in private collections inspire minds to dream about a life on the water. Model shipbuilding has been a part of humanity since ancient times, with models from thousands of years ago providing archaeological evidence of how seafaring cultures devised and perfected watercraft.... read more about ship models >>

Lijnbaansgracht... was the name of the canal where Authentic Models was born in 1968. This was the canal where all the rope and cable workshops were located in the 16th and 17th centuries. They supplied the East India merchant fleets sailing out each spring from Amsterdam ports on the long voyage around Cape of Good Hope to New Holland, later Australia, and then north to the fabled Spice Islands of Molucca and on to Malacca.

Sailors then explored all the unknown corners of the world, expecting and often finding dangers. Using simple tools, sextants, compasses, logs and charts, they brought back artifacts, curiosities, commodities for the western markets.

That our nautical roots still influence us is clearly evident. Eons of sailing history and lore are represented in our collection of models, instruments, and cartography.

Sail models take us back to those beach and country park outings from our youth. A classic pond yacht showcases an era when children grew up with real, hands-on objects to play with and learn from. In our day and age, they represent a bygone era and are beloved as decor in beach cabins and homes.

The grand old steamers that crossed the Atlantic have become legends. It's been close to a century now since the Titanic was lost. Some eighty years ago the first Queen Mary traveled between the port of Southampton and the Cunard pier in New York's harbor. Opulent First Class, its extraordinary luxury representing an era when time was more leisurely enjoyed. All that, while also transporting a generation of immigrants moving one-way, West to a New World.

The easy design of the dining / lounge area in this coastal home is inviting. Eclectic furnishings are complemented well by white-washed walls. Love the sail boat model that is given an importance by being placed on the fireplace mantel.

beautiful costal living room design with sail boat model above the fireplace; coastal living; nautical decor

A lovely combination of textures and colors in this airy living room. The furniture arrangement directed towards a gorgeous view of a bay. Love the window seat! It would be my favorite spot in the room. I think I could spend hours there with a cup of tea and nice book. So cozy and inviting...

Another admirable thing about this room is the masterful distribution of color; color blue that is. From the inviting navy blue sofa through the sea blue rug to the glossy blue sail boat model above the fireplace and down to accent pillows on the window seat your eye travels pleasantly through the room.
