Morning vintage lovers! Just a quickie today to give you a brief round up of the lovely new bits that have made their way on to the website over the last week or so – then I’m off to gear up for a double 11 birthday (that’s two eleven year olds, not one particularly childish 22 year old.) Ready? Let’s go!
First up, the Gplan Brandon Dressing Table:
This compact little dressing table from G Plan’s Brandon range is made of oak and oak veneer, and offers two good sized drawers below plus the benefit of a beautiful adjustable mirror which is moved backward and forwards via the shaped oak handle. My favourite bit though, is the top drawer also features a lovely little removable jewellery drawer.
There is the option to use as a two drawer chest by removing the mirror, but we think it looks gorgeous in place! Sitting atop tapered legs, the form of the dresser is quintessentially G plan, and features the Brandon’s iconic handles to each drawer.
In total contrast size wise, our next piece is the Ervi Mobler drawers!
Equally useful in the bedroom, living room, or even kitchen, these drawers pack some impact, without costing the earth!
Dating from the 1970s and stamped Ervi Mobler, Made in Denmark, to the reverse, this large-but-not-domineering ‘lowboy’ carries the classic clean lines that are associated with the Scandinavian design movement. Finished in a combination of teak and teak veneers to the outer carcase, each drawer has a beautifully shaped wooden handle.
And finally on our whistle stop tour of the newbies, the Staples Ladderax chairs:
Designed in the 1960s by Robert Heals for Staples Ladderax, these steel framed dining chairs offer elegant, understated mid century style.
The slung leather seats are very comfortable, and although they do show signs of use and wear (or because of this, in my humble opinion) they have fantastic character and style. Plus it’s pretty rare to find a full set of 4!
Phew! That concludes our speedy summary. I’m having alittle break form the blog next week for the aforementioned birthdays/bank holiday/half term/because I want to, so I’ll catch you again in a fortnights time!
Until then, take care vintage lovers,
