Stock Preview - Huge Royal Doulton Lamps

I thought I should share what I am currently working on at Pineapple Retro HQ.... These lamp bases have been in stock for many years, but were originally metallic gold, and in a bad way (they had been over polished, so the gold had warn off in patches, and they didn't look very nice) I decided to refinish them into much happier colours, and this is the result.  They were made by Royal Doulton back in the 1970s, and this is the larger size they produced. Each has been primed and spayed with several coats, and a protective lacquer added after. They have...

Fantastic Vintage Fabric - Now In

I have a large stock of vintage fabric which will be added to the site soon, but this is the most talked about design so far... Very similar to a Heals design (close to my heart, as i have it at home myself) this is actually an american version, and comes in a slightly different fabric mix. I have lots in stock and am willing to sell in smaller lengths if needed, in fact a local sandwich shop bought 2m last night for their displays.
