If you are after something 1950s and (dare we say it) a little kitsch too for your kitchen, check out this Formica cabinet, dining table and stacking stools. The kind of thing you probably saw in most homes of the... Continue reading

You had to stay up late (or get up early) to secure a pair of the Adidas Bern trainers a couple of weeks back and it looks very much like you will have to do the same to pick up... Continue reading

Two colour options and one eye-catching design for this Nottingham chair by Brissi. We do like the 'square' shape of this seat, with detailing kept to a minimum, really just the two buttons on the back and the angular wooden... Continue reading

Orla Kiely's homeware range is full of desirable items. But these new flower vases are great for adding a splash of retro style and colour - and that's even before you add any blooms. These ceramic vases are great fun.... Continue reading

I know we featured something similar not long ago, but we are flagging up this 1970 Fiat 500 because it is one of the very few we've seen that's actually a UK right-hand drive model. That's right, no import here.... Continue reading

Officially, these are described as Saddle Office Chairs at West Elm. Nut we can see them being pretty stylish occasional chairs around the house too. But if you need an office chair that fits into your hip mid-20th century space,... Continue reading

Yesterday we featured something from the retailer than channelled the early part of the decade, now we have spotted something from the other end - this 1960s-inspired Louche Baby Dress at Joy The Store. It is pitched as a dress... Continue reading

The Salford Lads Club is probably most famous for its occasion with The Smiths. But its Victorian exterior has again been immortalised, this time in this print by We Live Here. The building, which sits on the corner of Coronation... Continue reading

Last seen in the 1980s, the Baracuta G4 shirt collar jacket is back on the racks in 2014. It's a lesser-seen variant of the classic Baracuta G4, usually seen with the funnel 'Harrington' collar. This one has that 'shirt' collar... Continue reading

Not the sort of thing you'll find easy to come by in the UK, which is definitely one of the attractions of this Electra Swing 3 Californian-style cruiser bicycle, which just happens to be on eBay right now. Dealers in... Continue reading

When we think Roberts, we tend to focus on its classic Revival Radio (which was most recently issued in its Mini incarnation). But for us, the Roberts Vintage DAB/FM radio is every bit as cool, if not more so. Not... Continue reading

We are really digging this Louche Rubra dress at Joy The Store as a hip option for the autumn and winter months. It's a new take on a 1960s classic, the shift dress, primarily in the cloth used. That's a... Continue reading

If you haven't actually read the book of A Clockwork Orange by Anthony Burgess and like the idea of doing so, then this new version from The Folio Society is perhaps the way to go. It's just a lovely thing.... Continue reading

A super-sized old school ruler stuck on your wall? That's pretty much the effect of the giant ruler coat hooks from Lovestruck Interiors. When we say old, we mean very old, with the vintage-style wooden ruler matched up with Victorian-inspired... Continue reading

Here's a stylish little number from West Elm: their new mid-century book shelf. Although they've called it mid-century, it's a pretty classic looking set of shelves that could easily find themselves at home in many rooms. They're made from an... Continue reading

I love the simplicity of this 1960s Danish sofa bed. It's also perhaps the main reason why it has aged so well. In fact, it's so simple, there isn't a lot to say about it! But we'll add in that... Continue reading

The classic school satchel is the obvious inspiration for this rather cool Dr Martens leather backpack. Well, that and the famous boot from Dr Martens, especially when we focus on this cherry red leather variation. Of course, you can opt... Continue reading

Of course, you can buy old ones on eBay if you dig around, but these Vintage Vogue clothing patterns are brand new - and as such, are guaranteed to be complete. The other added attraction (aside from being able to... Continue reading

There's a whole range of Charlie Brown-inspired products by TSPTR at Oi Polloi right now, but we really can't get past these wonderful Charlie Brown socks. They are what they are - socks based around the sweater of cult Peanuts... Continue reading

It looks like new in the photos, but this is an original 1960s Dansette Monarch record player with legs on eBay. But it has been professionally restored, including reupholstering, new cable, cleaning and servicing of the inner workings (which include... Continue reading

It's a shoe that dates back to the early 1970s, but the Converse Breakpoint OX can be found at one place only right now, which is at a Size? store or indeed, its online store. It's a shoe seen as... Continue reading
