New Antiquity is Sarah Bader and Matt Rink, newlywed, artist/builders marrying their love of art and the home. With our combined senses of practicality and whimsy, we offer one-of-a-kind, finely crafted pieces, handmade in our studio apartment in Connecticut. All our creations are built and designed with clever details and fine craftsmanship. We draw inspiration from history and our travels and findings.

We have also begun collaborating with fellow artists and friends to create more pieces for the shop. So stay tuned for highlights about those treasures.

New Antiquity also encompasses the father-son team of Roger and Matt Rink. Combining Roger’s 35+ years experience as a master carpenter, builder, and contractor with Matt’s background as an artist, carpenter, and metal fabricator. They deliver a high end, uniquely disciplined result that is sure to surpass your expectations. Roger and Matt have been working together on projects for the past eight years upholding the age old tradition of father to son apprenticeship. Following Matt’s completion of a Masters degree in Fine Arts, they have merged efforts to form New Antiquity Builders. Together they pride themselves on upholding a rare level of quality in hand built construction.
