Drinks Ahoy

Drinks Ahoy

  I literally haven't had one of these bars in stock for years, in fact, this very one came from my old shop and i jumped at the chance to buy it back when the customer fancied a change around. Complete with faux anchor hanging from one of it's portholes, it oozes kitsch from every nautical inch. Plenty of room to store drinks and glasses at the back, a handy ring for your bar towel and even a built in bottle opener.  Even an under counter light for evening entertaining. Amazing condition considering it's age (likely to be 1950s).   ...

Rare Palaset Modular Storage System- Finland

I have never seen any of these fantastic modular furniture pieces in the flesh until i stumbled across this lovely pile.  Made in Finland by Palaset and designed by Ristomatti Ratia, son of the founder of Marimekko.

Very good quality, with a very slight texture to the surface. The pieces photographed can be moved around and made into a number of individual and very handy pieces. With drawers, shelves,...

I'd had it for a while but was looking for the perfect shade. Turns out it didn't exist, so i commissioned Fru Fru tulip to make me one, and some smaller versions too. Of course that lamp sold extremely...

The Garden Office

I realised i hadn't actually shown many pictures of where Pineapple Retro comes to you from... Well, this is my HQ... my little sanctuary in the garden, surrounded by a tropical garden jungle and within chatting distance to the guinea pigs generally (who have to put up with witterings daily). This poor building has had so many uses. It actually came with me from a previous house (where it had housed a very large super sports motor bike)! it looked very different then. Once it arrived, it became a general dumping ground, then i opened it as a home shop,...
