Coldplay's Guy Berryman Takes On Antiques


If Coldplay bassist Guy Berryman has a laundry list of quirky side ventures to cross off, he’s proceeding pretty quickly. Berryman recently released a free EP with side-project Apparatjik and sponsored a village cricket team while continuing to work with Coldplay. Now, the musician is teaming up with his brother and former chef, Mark, to launch an antiques dealership.

The Sun reports that Mark Berryman moved to Sweden in order to find and restore Scandinavian furniture. The brothers sell tables, chairs, cabinets and other pieces on the Internet for a pretty hefty profit.

Not only are they antiques, though, they’re famous rock star antiques—which probably drives the price up even more.
