You might think it’s a vintage find, but this midcentury-inspired rosewood sideboard is brand new. I suppose the legs might have given it away, those industrial-style iron hairpin legs being very ‘now’, but still looking good with the powder coated... Continue reading

One particular detail has drawn to the Iris midcentury-style sofa and armchair at Sofaland. It’s those legs. The long skinny legs, which really steal the show. Of course, the chair itself has some style itself with the curves and the... Continue reading

Don’t go looking for The Twilight Zone limited edition prints by Shag at his own online store. The only place to get any variation is at the Dark Hall Mansion website. The hugely popular artist is the the first ‘guest’... Continue reading

We did flag up something similar to these a few months back, which subsequently sold out. If you missed out, good news, these vintage sweets storage tins are back at Lisa Angel. Metal tins, described as ‘vintage’, but not actually... Continue reading

Want some art on your desk? You could do that rather cheaply with the Mondrian-inspired Monde Riant adhesive notes by Pa Design. Yes, another piece of design inspired by the iconic artwork of Piet Mondrian. It looks great on the... Continue reading

No bids on this so far, so perhaps someone could get a bargain with this 1950s Morris Minor car. The car dates back to 1958, but was resprayed three years back and rebuilt using original parts, including chrome work and... Continue reading

We couldn’t just feature one these designs, as the Vintage Apple picnic bag, lunch bag and storage bag are pretty much the same family. They are all very affordable too. The picnic bag is the most expensive item, foil-insulated and... Continue reading

If you want one or more of these vintage store posters at Heal’s, you probably need to act fast. We say that because most already seem to be in single figures for stock on the site, so better safe than... Continue reading

This apparently started life in Norway in the 1960s, but this Scandinavian four-seater double sofa bed will be a perfect addition to any home in the modern era. It’a a really cool, minimalist design with wool upholstery and a wooden... Continue reading

We have featured a few similar designs in the past, but we think the limited edition Cruz electric bicycle by Vintage Electric is currently top of the pile. The second design from the company and available in strictly limited numbers... Continue reading

Love the strong imagery of these Alexander Girard design mugs by Vitra. The one above is perhaps the mug we are drawn to the most. We loved the 1971 ’Eyes’ design when we first saw it as a linen panel,... Continue reading

Another stylish piece of furniture courtesy of Etsy, this handmade midcentury-style credenza by Hardman Dasein Woodwork. The company is based in Berlin, but ships its designs worldwide. So if you want this, you can get it. It certainly appeals to... Continue reading

I think it’s the condition and colour that is drawing me to this 1960s Dansette Tempo record player on eBay. In a rather nice olive green and cream colour scheme (original apparently), the player has apparently been stripped and cleaned... Continue reading

The former is more interesting than the latter for us, but you really need to mention the Scandinavian-style oak shelving unit and shelf at Graham and Green together. Both are straightforward pieces, inspired by midcentury Scandinavian design, but above all,... Continue reading

Always a popular shoe, the Nike Classic Cortez trainers have been reissued once more in red and black colourways. The Cortez was originally called the Tiger Corsair, designed as a lightweight running shoe back in the 1970s. It’s back now... Continue reading

Another idea for retro-ing up your outdoor space, this time the Copa outdoor aperitif set at Made, which is available in two colour variations. It's a bold design, reminiscent of something you mind find on the terrace of a hip... Continue reading

Here's a piece of retro style that's not going to break the bank: the Kilda vintage clock from La Redoute. When it says vintage, it's not actually a vintage piece - just one that's been given a spot of retro... Continue reading

Love vinyl? Then you’ll probably love this 1950s record storage unit. Very stylish thing too. It is described as a ‘bespoke’ cabinet, made of blonde oak (with the exception of the back board and the dividers which are in plywood),... Continue reading

The sun is out and our thoughts are already drifting towards a day in the country or the seaside. Ideally, we’ll be armed with something like this Kissing Squirrels picnic hamper at John Lewis. It’s pretty much what you imagine... Continue reading

If you loved these when we first featured them but didn’t like the shade, you’re in luck. The midcentury-style Coco outdoor chairs at Swoon Editions are now available in two new colour options. The new colours for the 1950s-inspired chairs... Continue reading

This retro camera box from Rigby and Mac harks back to another era of photography, but that makes it no less a charming piece for your home. From the old-style camera on the front to the fantastic film-inspired graphics on... Continue reading

Could do with some colourful cheer in your life? Ikea's new Önskedrom collection - featuring the designs of illustrator Olle Eksell - will provide an abundance of that. Eksell was a prolific Swedish designer - we flagged up some of... Continue reading

For the money, this 1970s pine ceiling light definitely looks a winner. No designer attached to it, but a great mid-20th century look, constructed with 11 circular concentric thin pine slats, which are secured by four vertical plywood brackets placed... Continue reading
