Broadway actor and Off-Broadway antiques dealer Adam Bashian has been a collector of the unusual for as long as he can remember. Through the years, collecting has turned from a casual hobby to a full-time obsession. Traveling across North America with his touring shows, Adam has amassed a large assortment of antiques and artifacts, which eventually became the basis of his own store, Dark Interiors. In his vast and varied collection, you can find natural history, taxidermy, skulls, Indigenous art, Victoriana, and much more.
Come tour Adam’s weirdly wonderful home and discover the fascinating history of the oddities and curiosities inside. We'll learn about the art of taxidermy, the ways that various cultures honored their dead, and more.
Dark Interiors was founded in 2018 by actor and natural history collector Adam Bashian. Their goal is to inspire a revitalization in the rich history of the “Wunderkammer”, or “cabinet of curiosity”. It is their mission to provide high quality antiques, oddities, and artifacts for everyone to create their own modern cabinets of curiosity. They hand pick our items from sources around the globe and take pride in having a piece for every collectors preference.
Our partners at Weird Homes Tour offer a series of virtual and physical tours that allow you to visit the inside of homes, and meet collectors of oddities, rare art collectors, performance artists, painters, sculptors and architects in cities all across the USA. As you browse their 100+ homes you will see that they reject cookie cutter design and architecture and embrace the wonderfulness of weird. Check out their instagram for more amazing photos and stories.
