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...

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...

Designer Feature: You Make Me Design - Acrylic Retro Brooches, Necklaces, GPO Phones and Clocks

When I started sourcing stock for my new venture, the very first person I contacted was the lovely Emily Bardgett of, You Make Me Design. Working with her partner in crime (and life), Mark, they produce awesome jewellery and home ware products, primarily made in acrylic and wood. Iconic Cathrineholm-Style Coffee Pot Designs I have admired her Cathrineholm style acrylic coffee pot brooches for a long time, and loved her bold, clean style, not to mention the fabulous colours! It goes without saying, as a big Arne Clausen fan, I had to stock the laser-cut, acrylic Cathrineholm coffee pots, (brooches & necklaces). I think they're fab. Sophie...
