“Modern Tarih Showroom is located everyone’s favorite Çukurcuma. The area has a grown a reputation, over the years, for being a quiet, but multidimensional neighborhood. One of its strong suites is playing host to many of the city’s antique boutiques found both in ground floor shops as well as entire apartment buildings. Modern Tarih Showroom is, indeed, one of these higher end shops. Its two-story showroom opened in 2006 and houses a truly antique collection, with an otherworldly flair.

Pieces are brought in from China, Russia, Africa and Mongolia. While the majority of the collection dates back to the late 19th and early 20th centuries, there are some items that were made during the 18th century. All items are original works and handmade, sure to satisfy any art and history enthusiast. Gorgeous tapestries, impressively-detailed wooden doors and stone gates, porcelains and jewelry as well as regal statuettes can all be found. However, unlike other antique showrooms, Modern Tarih is not cluttered. Thus, giving every client a little more space to walk and search both floors. From large furniture to smaller delicate pieces, you will surely be able to find something to your liking. If you have a specific item in mind that you cannot find on display, ask what is available in storage. “
