Uniflex

I’m just going to start this off by saying, on the whole, I’m going to avoid the topic of viruses on this blog. For the foreseeable future, I’ll be focusing on vintage furniture with a bit of life stuff thrown in, (as I have done over the last few years) so, of course it is bound to come up, as all sorts of areas of life are and will be affected – but I’m not a scientist, and this isn’t the best place for virus related discussion. Let’s keep it vintage as much as we can.

So, on to today’s topic – just recently we’ve added to our Uniflex collection on the website with this handsome dressing table:

(Incredibly hard to photograph without getting myself/random workshop mess/the dog in the reflection!)

It joins our other Uniflex pieces, the chest of drawers and the bedside cabinet, to make quite the mid century bedroom suite.

All these lovelies were designed by Peter Hayward for Uniflex – Hayward was a prolific mid century designer, working with everyone from GPlan to Greaves and Thomas to Parker Knoll to Nathan, and a number of his pieces were selected for the Design Council to represent British Design.

Uniflex were cutting edge in the ’50s and ’60s, championing sleek and minimal design, and although popular at the time, didn’t make huge numbers – meaning they are slightly rarer today.

Either as a set or as stand alone pieces, the lovely details on our Uniflex collection marks them out as something special to me.

Have a good week, vintage lovers!
