You’re curled up on the sofa, feet nestled in a soft rug, the fire crackles as you sip a warm cup of tea. The perfect autumn evening. But what’s missing? A vintage teak sideboard, atop stands your TV playing…X Factor?!
Yes, unfortunately the summer is drawing to a close and with that comes crisper days, falling leaves and the return of the UK’s most infamous talent show. But if the thought of watching talentless-fame-crazed-contestants turns you off. Rewind a step in our story and focus on the vintage teak side board instead. Or if a sideboard isn’t what you’re looking for, replace it with a retro large teak G plan coffee table, or 1960’s teak hall mirror with handy shelf.
Teak is the Colour for Fashionable Autumn Furniture
You see whatever picture you create for yourself this autumn, you’d be missing a trend to not consider complementing it with some vintage teak furniture. Teak is the colour for autumn and the vintage 60’s designs are making an overdue come back.
Check out this Vintage Teak Tea Trolley for instance.
It might not look much on its own. But just think of the story it comes with, who might have used it, and for what purpose? Maybe it was the drinks trolley in a bustling London ad agency execs office. Offering solace in times of need and celebration when winning clients.Now you can transform it into your very own Don Draper style drinks stand. And that’s not where our collection of vintage designs, like the ones you’re likely to see on the screen in shows like Mad Men, end.
Right now on Vintage Vibe we have a variety of special items in stock that are ideal for creating your very own retro fest this coming autumn.
