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. Orange Jewellery and desk accessories

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 pieces; key rings, clips, hooks and little tape dispensers, they would really brighten up a dull office space. They come from the USA and were made by a company called Counterpoint in the 1970s. From a shop clearance of amazing goodies of the same period, so watch this space for more (several more loads winging their way across the pond now).

Snuggled between these two is a simple yet stylish retro keyring, made from perspex in orange, yellow and clear, with a stainless steel hoop and fixing. The shapes were based on a fabric design from the 1960s called 'Heidi' by Genia Sapper. And finally is one of my favourite pieces on the website, being a big fan of these stylish lotus pattern. A miniature Cathrineholm coffee pot brooch (also available as a necklace), and not just available in orange, but a rainbow of other yummy acrylics too.  

Orange mugs and bowl- Superliving

How about something for the kitchen now? These lovely pieces above are all made from high quality bone china. The very Scandinavian apple print mug was designed by Lotta Kuhlhorn for koloni, in Sweden (sadly now discontinued, so snap them up quickly). At the other end is another Scandinavian piece by Superliving of Denmark, in striking swimming pool blue and vivid orange, i have mugs and these lovely snack bowls.

Central is an English textile designer Becky Baur, who produced the toadstool and strawberry mug designs i stock, she does lovely illustrations on cushions, notebooks and ceramics.

Orange eames panton style chairs

If you fancy more of a statement, how about some furniture? We have a lovely range of chairs and tables based on iconic designs such as Charles Eames, Verner Panton and Saarinen. They are extremely well made as well as being affordable for your retro home. I am currently sitting on one of the Eames eiffel style side chairs at my desk. Each piece is available in several colours, so please have a look around the furniture section.

Last but not least is a new edition to the site. A fantastic company called Common Kitchen who produces amazing retro / vintage style, bold transfer printed ceramics (in high quality crisp bone china). They come from Korea, and can't be found in this country usually.
