The Story Behind Provenance Rentals

 

Provenance Rentals is a growing boutique vintage rentals company and design house located in the South Bay in Los Angeles, California. We love to work with people who value the beauty and quality of vintage. Anna, the creative director and founder, is passionate about vintage and the message it transmits about quality, stability, and permanence. Provenance Rentals once operated under a different name with Anna and her former business partner; however, the company pivoted and rebranded. One day, Anna and her hubby were at dinner and she was spinning her wheels thinking of the perfect name. Her smart husband, who interestingly enough, loves Antiques Road Show said what about "Provenance Rentals?" There couldn't be a more perfect word. Provenance means a record of ownership of a work of art or an antique, used as a guide to authenticity or quality. We actually couldn't believe no one used this name already for vintage rentals. It was perfect! A major component of the brand is seeking genuinely vintage, or antique, items. Our vintage rentals collection tells your personal narrative. Anna lends her skills and creativity to make your wedding, event, or space magical, memorable, and unique and as special as you are. You will receive individualized attention and focus for your design needs. 

Meet Anna

Anna is a wife to a smart, techy husband and momma to two dynamic, energetic boys ages three and five. Family and love are just as important as business. Her tireless pursuit of finding beauty in almost anything set the stage for Provenance Rentals. Her biggest joys are spending time with her family and friends, traveling if she can (Hawaii is calling her name, but she also loves the offbeat locations, too), and curating her vintage rentals collection so clients fall in love with it as much as she does. Each item is special to her; some items are even family heirlooms.

Before tackling entrepreneurship, Anna's legal background fine-tuned her meticulous attention-to-detail. In a previous life, she also worked in highly artistic industries--theatre and film. For ages, she has been planning weddings, parties, events; amassing gorgeous vintage pieces; hosting workshops; juggling power tools; and handcrafting some unique items in the vintage rentals collection. Over the years, she has developed her style for what is relevant and on trend. Discovering the right piece is about a feeling, balance, and proportions, not perfection and symmetry. She elegantly ties eclectic items together to reflect your style and theme. Her knack for vetting hidden gems helps you avoid the headache of searching for high quality vintage objects, negotiating their prices, and transporting and storing them.

She brings her love, imagination, resourcefulness, and professionalism to elevating your wedding, event, shoot, home, or space to the next level.
