Its been a while....

Apologies to all our regular followers who have been wondering what has happened with our (not-so) regular blog posts! Things have been a little busy since we opened our doors in June. Since then we have been busy sourcing, refurbishing and bringing back to life lots of beautiful Mid Century Furniture!  A big thank you to all our customers, we couldn't have done it without you all.

Meanwhile, we are busy getting ready for Christmas so expect to see lots more truly exquisite Mid Century pieces over the coming months. Our Showroom and Design Studio at No. 7 Wellington Place Belfast, BT1 6GB is open as usual from Thursdays to Saturdays (10.30pm to 5pm) and by appointment during the week. Keep an eye out for our extended opening hours coming up to Christmas!

PS - We have some very exciting news which we will be sharing with you all soon too!

Based in a lovely Old Georgian Townhouse, our showroom and design studio is a "Hidden Gem" of mid century glamour and is packed to the rafters with delightful and charming fully refurbished and original mid century wares! We still have a few bits and pieces to finish off for our official launch in September but until then we are open on Saturdays or by appointment during the week. So if you are in town make sure to pop in and say hello! For further info you can e-mail us at

A Right Royal Pop-Up.....

Its been a busy few weeks here at HQ with a number of lovely projects on the go, one of which was our Diamond Jubilee Pop-Up window display in Holywood. The lovely people at Rodgers and Browne Estate Agents have invited us back to help them celebrate the Queens Diamond Jubilee. We brought along one of our current favourites, our "Mr Peacock" Cocktail Chair and teamed him up with a new addition to the family "Bloody Mary",a beautiful fully refurbished 1950s cocktail chair finished in Tomato Red Velvet. The display draws inspiration from the era of the Queens Coronation and has been given an appropriately Regal theme.  The display is set against a Colonial Pink backdrop watched over by an Andy Warhol Print taken from Her Majestys Silver Jubilee. All items on display are available to purchase from Rodgers & Brownes lovely offices at 76 Main Street, Holywood BT18 9AE or through us at our new studio/showroom (more of which to follow!) If you need any further details of any of the pieces you can email us at:!

A little bit of Nordic Cool........

This sophisticated Scandart Armchair oozes Scandinavian Style and adds a dash of Nordic Cool to our Spring Summer Collection for 2012. This beautiful piece has been fully reconditioned & reupholstered in soft cloud grey tumbled linen and accented with rich charcoal grey elements to the frame. We adore the elegant lines of the teak frame and think it would be the perfect companion for any sophisticated modern home. For further details check out our website or email us at!

Say hello to "Mr Peacock".....

"Mr Peacock" is the latest addition to our Spring/Summer 2012 Collection and is a beautiful, fully reconditioned and re-upholstered 1950s Cocktail Chair in elegant soft Peacock Blue Velvet. The clean elegant lines of this great period chair make it an unfussy statement piece for any interior. The original re-polished blond wood frame is accented by slashes of soft dove grey in the form of lacquered diagonal rear legs and armrest supports. This beautiful chair is a delight to sit in as it is fully sprung and its styling is quintessentially Mid Century! Gin and Tonic anyone?

A new addition to our Summer 2012 collection is the beautiful “Mrs Bouquet” Armchair. This elegant Ercol Windsor Armchair has been fully reconditioned and re upholstered in stunning soft olive yellow and moss green tumbled linen with new foam cushions and Pirelli webbing. The beech and elm frame has been refinished and polished and for a little extra Twisted Vintage touch we have lacquered the base frame and back spindles in soft dove grey which beautifully compliment the elegantly proportioned blond wood frame.

This is just one of a series of beautifully reloved vintage armchairs that we currently have in stock. For further information you can email us at or PM us through our facebook page - the tab is at the bottom right of our blog!
