Yes, you can buy vintage furniture, but the extensive handmade 1960s furniture designs by Pastform are worth checking out too.
This is a growing range and all the better for it. The first design, as spotted in the top 60 retro record and vinyl storage units round-up on Retro To Go, is that amazing vinyl sidebar you can see above. A gem of a design and with vinyl ownership on the rise, a practical piece too. But this isn’t just about vinyl storage. Although the range does have that adequately covered.
This Polish furniture brand offers designs for all over the house, with that 1960s vibe there selling point of each one. It looks vintage, and that’s the point. Except this is new and made specifically for you.
And the look isn’t by chance. Someone has paid much attention to the detail across all the range, from form to function. No, it isn’t the cheapest range out there (for slightly less money, I would recommend the Quilda range at La Redoute), but it is one of the most eye-catching if you are a fan of the era. And if you are looking at this site, you just might be.
This is furniture remade with such attention to detail that it’s hard to tell whether it is modern or vintage. From the wood through to the design, this is right on the button when it comes to midcentury modern furniture. It isn’t the cheapest, but it’s also not the most expensive.
And it is extensive in its reach. Not just confined to the living room (although that space is well catered for), you can also get yourself a chunky office desk, some bedside cabinets and even a wardrobe. So a full house refit – if you have the budget.
And that’s the thing. It is handmade, and it is good quality, and as a result, this isn’t a budget range, But it isn’t in the ‘designer’ price bracket either.
For example. that vinyl sideboard. A lovely design and bags of storage space, it sells for £936. It was cheaper a short while back, but I suspect currency fluctuations impact the price point. Still, it compares well to other sideboards.
I’ve also picked out some other items on this page. That wonderful highboard, which is packed with storage beyond those two cupboard doors, as well as the storage in the centre. That sells for just over £2,000.
Working down the page, you can also get the large bookcase, selling for around £1,400, along with a sideboard/media unit for around £900, a slide cabinet for £524, a large set of drawers for £1,500, and a desk for around £1,200.
Some interesting designs have just been added too, especially for fans of vinyl. Yes, that amazing sideboard is no longer a one-off. The best thing you can do is check out the retailer’s site as there are so many new pieces. More than I can mention here. But there are a few that jump off the page initially.
As I said, vinyl lovers certainly haven’t been forgotten. First up, there is the Mini Vinyl Cabinet, a smaller take on the vinyl sideboard and good as a media unit too. £635 for that.
Something more vinyl-focused? Check out the Cabinet Play, which is purpose-built for your turntable, amp and your favourite pile of vinyl. Stylish and practical, the handmade unit retails for £930.
For a statement piece in your home, look no further than the Mid-Century Bookshelf. Love the grain, but the functionality works too. A real conversation starter that retails for £2,146.
Prices and sizes vary across as you would expect. But if you want to see everything, have a browse of the Pastform Furniture website.
