Vintage in London

leave a comment »

London has quite a few more good vintage shops than the ones around Shoreditch mentioned in this recent New York Times Style blog post. What is interesting in the London vintage furniture scene is that it seens relatively less mature than in other European cities like Paris, Copenhagen or Stockholm. Sure, prices tended to be inflated until recently by the high value of the pound, but that it has gone done a bit, there are good deals to be had and good dealers to buy from.

But let us come to the main reason of this post. We were happy to see an old haunt of ours being mentioned. Two Columbia Road is where we once found this very distinctive Wegner bed for Getama. Note the unusual combination of teak, cane, vinyl and glass.
