Like everyone else, we were shocked by the recent death of Prince, but heartened by all the good feelings towards both the man and his work in the wake of it. Plenty of tributes have followed too, including this screening... Continue reading

It’s a 1960s classic that’s a regular on the shelves. But the legend green finish for these Adidas Gazelle OG trainers is something just a little different. Only a little though, the legend green finish for the suede upper is... Continue reading

Ultimately this is just as a radio. But that’s probably playing down this 1970s Philips transistor radio with circular stand and speakers just a little too much. Yes, this operates just as a radio and of course, without modern-era DAB.... Continue reading

Another mid-century inspired number new in at West Elm - this time it's their pop-up storage coffee table that's caught our eye. It's a stylish little number - dark wood with a contrasting marble leaf top that nods to the... Continue reading

We have neglected this feature for a couple of weeks, mainly due to time constraints. So think of this as a catch-up for the best retro house finds over at WowHaus. 1960s Michael Newberry-designed modernist property in Falmouth, Cornwall (pictured... Continue reading

If you love the swinging sixties, you might want this Philippe Chair by Jonathan Adler. But note that it doesn’t come cheap. Great look though, very much with that ‘Mad Men’ vibe, this is an angular chair with sloping back... Continue reading

Sadly we can’t find any additional images outside of the front cover, but if you are a fan of the band, you will probably want The Smiths by Nalinee Darmrong regardless. A 224-page hardback book published by Rizzoli, this is... Continue reading

I’m guessing that when Sonic Youth released the classic Goo album back in 1990, they didn’t foresee a home collection off the back of it. But fast forward 26 years and there is a Sonic Youth Goo collection at Woouf.... Continue reading

Danish firm Superliving make vibrant patterned homewares - and their latest Lulu range happily continues that tradition. At the moment the range just consists of a bowl and a mug - but it looks like there is a vase to... Continue reading

Yes, this really is an R2-D2 Architectural Desk Lamp and one that’s available to buy right now. Ok, this is just another take on the classic Anglepoise lamp, but as that is a classic in itself, it’s no bad thing.... Continue reading

Of course this has been upcycled, but we still like the look of this Beaver & Tapley midcentury-style record storage unit. Presumably dating originally from the 1960s, the unit is a good looking piece, enhanced even more with the addition... Continue reading

It looks like a vintage design, but as far as we can see, the Teo Yoko pendant light range is a modern fitting taking inspiration from the past. That ‘past’ is the 1960s, although the retailer suggests that the design... Continue reading
