Curious Christmas



Specialist Retailer In Original 20th Century Vintage Furniture & Lighting

We specialise in vintage furniture and lighting mainly from the 20th Century, with a nod to the softer side of industrially produced products.  Everything we sell has a story to tell, a heritage and a provenance. We are passionate about the craftsmen & women behind each piece and we have a mission to capture the story of these exceptional makers, both the heritage brands who have long stopped trading and those makers who still produce today.

These makers share the same DNA, great design, great quality of manufacture, a provenance.

Champions Of Forgotten Legendary Makers

We are a small passionate team who have been in the industry for many years and have built up an extensive sourcing base throughout Europe. We don’t buy at auctions or antique fairs we go direct to the original sellers so that we are first to market with the very special pieces and can offer good value.

We are champions of the forgotten makers, the original 20th Century factories and workshops that produced the prime vintage we sell today. We are passionate about Baumann, Tolix, Nicholle, Thonet, Ton, Fibrocit, Evertaut, Mullca, and Strafor just to name just a few. Products that were designed by craftsmen and engineered to last.

We have an extensive (and constantly growing) collection of vintage products across our website, with a large selection of competitively priced vintage furniture and lighting available, along with accessories and wall art also on offer.
