I know, we featured a record player yesterday too. As a rule, we would never feature two in a row, but when we spotted this 1950s Dieter Rams-designed Braun PC 3 record player, we really couldn’t resist shouting about it.... Continue reading

Earlier this week we spotted these midcentury cabinets from the same designer. But what also caught our eye was this handmade wooden wall clock by James Design. Perfect for a 1960s-inspired interior, the clock is inspired by a sundial and... Continue reading

Fred Perry has taken a classic bit of military surplus and refined it just a little. The result is this Fred Perry oversized fishtail parka for women. At first glance, this is your classic mod-friendly anorak, but reworked in a... Continue reading

An easy way to add some midcentury-style graphics into your home: these new trays by Maria Holmer Dahlgren. If Holmer Dahlgren's name sounds familiar, it's because we loved her Pop Art-esque designs, featuring everywhere from London to Stockholm. These are... Continue reading

You don’t need to see the presence of an 8-track player to know the era of this amazing Weltron 2005 space age audio system. This is hipster central circa 1970 and probably a glimpse at the expected future at the... Continue reading

These jumped out on us browsing the Not On The High Street site recently and when you see the Boulder display units by CoucouManou, you can perhaps understand why. It’s (almost) all about the colour, with slabs of bright shades... Continue reading

Dedicated followers of fashion should pay attention to Lou Taylor's colourful 1960s-style Legs Print. It's not the first time the Brighton-based designer has looked to the past for inspiration: we've previously featured her 1950s furniture brooches. The colourful tights-clad legs... Continue reading

Another option for the home office, this rather cute Esme desk at Made. Two desks in fact. As you can see from one of the images below, there’s a choice of the all-ash finish or a version that contrasts white.... Continue reading

The corner sofas are the real stars of the show for us, but the whole of the Howard seating range at Swoon Editions is worth checking out. As you probably know and expect, all Swoon Editions designs are in very... Continue reading

We are wondering whether this is the same company that did the wonderful Double Rocker a few years back. It would make sense as the Mid Century Sideboard and Cabinet by James Design are pretty stylish items too. Both are... Continue reading

Out of the archives and back on the shelves comes this 1970s Adidas Team Bag. It's a stunner too. Described as 'a faithful re-issue of an archival '70s style', the bag is made on an imitation leather and in a... Continue reading

If the white and blue variation wasn't for you, then perhaps you'll prefer the Adidas Hamburg trainers in grey suede, along with the matching track top. Both are available now as Size? exclusives. Actually, there's a t-shirt too if you... Continue reading

Another gem hidden away at Next Home, this rather cool Bergen chair. It's a midcentury-inspired design and a fairly simple one too, with a curved back, button detailing and angled / tapered legs. There's also a hardwood frame there, along... Continue reading

It is a player we have mentioned before, most recently in a polka dot finish. If that wasn't bold enough, how does a Crosley Cruiser turntable in gold grab you? That's the latest finish on offer for this vintaae-style record... Continue reading

Not the cheapest desk on the market, but there is much to love about the Slope Desk by Laura McKay Design. The look for a start, which has something of a 1950s / 1960s vibe about it, not least because... Continue reading
