Vintage Metal Tins, Trays, Coasters, Plates & Coffee Sets. Your Retro Kitchen is here!

Posted by Sophie Crocket on

Whether your vintage tastes are colourfully psychedelic Dutch Tomado metal tins or if you prefer the more classic Cathrineholm kitchenware, we've got just the thing to keep this Spring bright and cheery...

Our vintage section is alive with a rainbow of colours and patterns. Just the thing for brightening your retro home.

Vintage Metal Tins - Tomado

Our vintage stock is carefully sourced (by me), from across Europe and include well known producers such as Dutch company, Tomado and English Designer, Ian Logan.

I always aim to provide something unique for my loyal customers.

With an ever changing range, it is always worth popping back to our vintage department to see what is in each week.

Vintage Colourful Metal Tins - Ian Logan

Vintage tins can be used for storage in the kitchen, office, playroom & more. They look fantastic when mixed together with clashing patterns - a real riot of colour. I always try and stock a good range, as well as being a keen collector myself.

Vintage Tomado Metal Coaster Set

Metal Coaster Sets

They don't just have to be hidden away under a cup.

They look fantastic lined up on a shelf to show their full glory.

Maybe mix up different patterns too.

Coasters are another way of getting bold design into the home on a super modest budget.

These Dutch beauties shown here were made by Tomado, who also produced some of the tins in stock - a great combo for a gift or collector.

View our Dutch Tomado Metal Coaster Sets here - just £18 a set!

Vintage Metal Trays

Sticking with the metal vintage theme, we've also got a steady flow of beautiful 60s and 70s trays but be quick - they wont stay around for long.

In fantastic condition, they only have a reassuring amount of wear but their designs are as bold and bright as they day they were made.

Vintage Metal Trays - Hung on WallsBut don't just collect your precious vintage metal trays and then tuck them away in a kitchen drawer.

How about making sure all their vintage gorgeousness is seen by everyone?

Why not get creative with your vintage and mount your metal trays on a wall!

It's certainly a great way to make a bold statement and beats a plain magnolia surface any day.

Check out this example from Quirk and Rescue - Great idea! In case you're wondering, she recommends a few small squares of vecro tape so no extensive DIY needed!

Tania from Quirk & Rescue has written a fantastic blog on her collection too.

 

Vintage Kitchenware

Even the plainest kitchen can be made special with some splashes of carefully placed colour.

Be it a Cathrineholm saucepan on the cooker top, a chopping board leant against the splash back or full-on appliance vibrancy (we have a bright orange fridge for example).
