It has the look of a Robert and Dorothy Heritage piece, but this 1950s cityscape sideboard is more in the style of them, rather than being attributed to them. We think it is 1950s anyway - the seller says '50s... Continue reading

It seems to be an ongoing series, with the retailer already offering a 1920s Frederick Charles Herrick print as well as some 1920s Aldo Cosomati-designed London Underground posters. Now that ran has been added to again with this 1920s Trooping... Continue reading

Not sure why it is 'Exotic', perhaps that is down to the construction of these 1970s Puma GV Special trainers. A reissue of a classic late 1970s tennis shoe, created originally in honour of Argentine tennis legend Guillermo Vilas, who... Continue reading

Hovering somewhere between midcentury and modernist design is this rather stylish Oliver wood side table by Oliver Bonas. It reminds us a little of the iconic Isokon Penguin Donkey, but taller, more colourful and perhaps more versatile too. The side... Continue reading

Certainly not cheap, but these Puma Suede trainers in angora wool should keep your feet warm this winter. It is all about the construction, with the shape of the classic 1970s basketball shoe remaining pretty much unchanged. But the angora... Continue reading

They are aimed at kids, but we suspect a few 'grown ups' might fancy one of these Satchel Lunch Bags, which are available via George at Asda. Yes, the one-time school essential (and now fashionable everyday bag) has become3 a... Continue reading

Dwell don't tend to go too retro with their furniture designs. Their new autumn collection, however, has a couple of pleasant exceptions, including this Monmouth leather sofa. They may have described it as 'slightly retro' but we reckon this sofa... Continue reading

Not sure of the exact year of this, but we guess that the Fiat 500L here is from either the late 1960s or early 1970s. You can always check with the seller, who has completely renovated the car. That includes... Continue reading

These are becoming something of an annual institution. Originally a 'one off' Christmas jumper design, the Viva Moz Vulgar Sweaters have returned (and sold out) annually, with new designs added each time. Now there are two more on offer -... Continue reading

It has a look inspired by the 1950s, but the inner workings of this Philips ORD7500 DAB/FM Bluetooth clock radio certainly aren't of a bygone era. As the above says, this is a DAB/FM radio (with 30 presets for each),... Continue reading
