ENThe hobby of collecting gained spread in European countries during the Classical Revival, especially in the early 19th century. England and France are considered to be the birthplaces of this well-known cultural phenomenon. Various things that had once been discarded as worthless began to be collected and held in an honourable place at home as a prized rarity - this phenomenon is known all over the world in different countries. In Lithuania it was also widespread because of the ideals of Romanticism and the political situation at the end of the 19th century. In the early 20th century the idea of Lithuania's statehood boosted the popularity of collecting. The events of World War I and post-war crisis greatly changed the traditions and principles of the collecting process, which was mostly the privilege of nobles in Lithuanian manors until then. In the interwar period it no longer depended on social status. The object of the present paper is the living interiors of Kaunas of the interwar period that once belonged to various collectors. The aim is to reconstruct the homes that really existed, and to describe a collector's interior as typical of a group of people having the same hobby. The intention is to place the local collectors' interior in the European context, showing the similarities and differences of the same phenomenon.With the aim to reveal a collector's interior as characteristic and typical, a short history of the collecting process in Lithuania is presented; the concept of a collector's interior is explicated referring to the actual images of the living spaces of the interwar Lithuanian cultural and social figures Kazys Grinius (1866-1950), Paulius Galaunė (1890-1988), Vladas Daumantas (1885-1977). Adomas Galdikas (1893-1969), Unė Babickaitė (Une Baye, 1897-1961), Antanas Tamošaitis (1906-2005), Liudas Truikys (1904-1987) and others. A collector's interior was partly influenced by the cultural policy of that period, in which the search for the Lithuanian identity was one of the main goals. The local collectors' interiors more frequently had the look of a less spacious, rather modest but aesthetic living environment characteristic of patriotically minded inhabitants. Different cases of interwar collectors' living spaces visually complement and confirm the ideas found in cultural studies that the collection "systems" are understood not only as regulated and historically shifting, but also as transmitting cultural memory from one generation to another.
