After all that controversial celebrity designer stuff the other day, we’re going back in time now to seek out few design classics. A bit of vintage. Every interior should have something vintage. Even if you prefer modern and contemporary, something old will ground the space and give it more character. This might be the place to go.
I’m sometimes nervous of showing you vintage pieces as they tend to be one offs and by the time you get to the store the thing you wanted might have been sold. But then I thought that we don’t all like the same thing and the other great fact about this store is that the range of stock is huge.
So actually if we do all decide we want vintage Eames chairs and Anglepoise lamps then there are plenty of them.
The store is called Lovely and Co and is full of things that the owners (whose background is in music) would like to have in their own homes. Which is exactly the same principle behind this Objects of Design series.
Inside you’lll find mid-century, industrial, Danish and English stuff. There was a fabulous 1960s light by Terence Conran last week but my friend bought it so I can’t show you. But there really must be something for everyone here.
If you prefer to see in real life before you buy, you can contact them and make an appointment to go to the showroom or workshop near Brighton station and they’re also more than happy to search out specific things for you. This is just a selection of my favourites. Yours might be different.
