We Love Orange Retro and Vintage for your home and lifestyle

Who doesn't love a bit of orange retro or vintage? It is such a happy colour, and not surprising i have rather a lot of it on the the Pineapple Retro website.  Above shows some little lovelies to treat yourself or perhaps as gifts. The little Toucan is a brooch replica of the famous 1970s Toucan lamp, and at a much more affordable £12, rather than the hundreds for the original lamps (when you can find the rare bird). Another recurring theme on the site is flower power. I am lucky enough to stumble across a fantastic supplier for the wooden...

We Love Red Retro and Vintage for your home and lifestyle

You may have noticed from the website that i have a 'thing' for rainbows. In fact all the products in each category are colour ordered. So i thought i would bring each category together and show you, firstly, the reds. Above shows the gorgeous retro jewellery, mostly made by the fantastic 'You Make Me Design' from laser cut acrylic in iconic shapes (Cathrineholm and GPO phones). However, the second piece in is a bangle made from an old knitting needle by 'Cardigan Lane', an ideal present for a knitter perhaps? The bold red and yellow flower is an original 1960s...

Have a colourful summer with Pineapple Retro

Probably shouldn't shout about it too loudly (as that big yellow ball will be scared off) but it seems to be getting more like summer? If you want to brighten up your retro or vintage inspired home, take a look at some of the goodies i have been finding of late. These battery operated string lights are my most popular item in stock at the moment. As they run from battery rather than mains, they can be used in all sorts of situations. Why not take them camping for example? Ideal for making any festival tent a bit special, or...

Turquoise Retro and Vintage living in harmony together

If you want to fill your retro home with fresh, zesty colour for summer, lime green and vivid turquoise are a good place to start. We have plenty of greens and blues in various shades, in vintage and modern retro, which work well together. A personal favourite of mine are these amazing turned eucalyptus wood candle sticks from Superliving of Denmark. I have added the option to choose a coloured candle when purchasing them too (after many customer requests). The candles also come from Denmark and are of the same high standard and amazing colours.. As an added bonus, my...

Vintage drinking glasses and Retro Jane Foster

Vintage drinking glasses and Retro Jane Foster

Retro drinking glasses are one way to jazz up even the dullest drink. Here at Pineapple Retro HQ we use a mixture of modern retro and vintage glasses, but always brightly coloured and fun. I love finding new designs, from the stylish lines of the 1950s (these tend to be thinner glass, so amazing any survived) to the slightly more robust, bold, vintage designs of the 1960s and 70s. Many of them came from France, and often had a jug to match, a lovely edition to any summer table for refreshment. Add in some coloured paper straws and you can...
