FOUNDERS OF OUTOFUSEBERLIN

104/ Love and Curating with Sissi Pohle and Pat Scherzer

This Valentine’s Day we’re excited to chat with one of our favourite creative couples of the moment, the founders of vintage and antique shop outofuseberlin and the set design label tablesandfoodSissi Pohle and Pat Scherzer.

With similar interests, their relationship blossomed into a creative partnership taking on many ventures - from curating antique objets and vintage fashion, to designing tablescapes and art directing for brands.

We first discovered the duo through their incredible home, a castle's outbuilding in Franconia, where they’ve created a playful and timeless haven surrounded by nature. Their re-design is full of character and personality and beautifully echoes the love that beams out of their relationship.

 
 
 
 
 

How did you meet?

We met for the first time in Berlin after getting in touch via Instagram and talking a lot about music and fashion. After our first date, we both quickly realized that we wanted to spend our lives together and we both took that into our own hands and followed the plan. Now we have been a couple for almost seven years, we are best friends and even business partners.

 
 
 
 

How did outofuseberlin come about?

We loved getting up early and exploring the flea markets around Berlin. The city was empty and we were alone on the streets with our old scooter. This adventure developed into a business, as more and more people from our community asked us for individual vintage pieces. So we also went on the hunt for our customers as personal shoppers. Gradually, outofuseberlin has developed, which we have primarily built up in such a way that we will not only take place in Germany.

 
 
 
 

What are you most proud of achieving together?

We are proud that we have taken a completely different path to what was perhaps expected of us in society. Together, we have turned our passion into a profession and no one has been able to stop us. As a unit we are extremely strong, one of us makes up for the deficit of the other. We can talk about everything, argue about everything, and still love each other so much that nothing comes between us. Our passion for music and fashion as well as historical architecture and furnishings unites us just as much as our view of life and our shared plans for the future.
