Just like an Indian Summer, you’ll see our furniture makes a sensory impact. The colours and textures of our wooden cupboards and vintage chairs are unbelievable.

Vintage Cupboards and Cabinets

Side Table and Coffee Tables

The coffee table or side table is probably the most important part of a living room or lounge. We can put our feet on these tables. We can set our food and drink on them, besides that, these tables also prevent us from losing the tv remote, well, sometimes. Therefore, they are vital! We have a unique range of coffee tables in that most aren’t traditional tables. This side table above in an old merchants desk from India. Use by street merchants as they sat on the ground at markets. These unconventional coffee tables are sturdy and durable and of course will make a splash in your living room, therefore a real conversation piece!

Women’s holiday bags are a great way to represent your unique style as well as pack all of the essentials you need for a fun filled day. The Ella saddle back achieves this perfectly. We are a big fan of saddle bags at Scaramanga due to their compact style and practical nature. We wanted to design that is slightly bigger than expected with a saddle bag, and we came up with the women’s saddle bag. The main compartment is big enough to fit all of your essentials for the day as well as extra space for a book to read at the beach. The clasp fastener allows you to easily access all of your belongings whenever you desire.

Keep your keys and phone secure in the zipped compartment underneath the flap. This is also a great way to keep them separate from your other belongings.

Locked In Edinburgh Vintage Props

vintage props
We met Jackie Jack and Heidi Richardson last week after they drove up to source vintage props for their successful business Locked in Edinburgh. The city’s no 1 escape rooms! They were so taken by what we stocked here at Scaramanga that they came back a few days later to buy more! We got chatting to them to find out more about their exciting business. Of course, we’re planning a Scaramanga office trip to try them out, we love an escape room!
What is an escape room?
For players who have never played before and have no idea what to expect, we liken the experience to the old tv programme, the Crystal Maze. Teams basically have to think outside the box to solve clues and linked puzzles to navigate out our rooms in 60 mins or less.
What are your escape room themes?
The Distillery themed room story revolves around a break-in thought to be an “inside job”. Players have 60 mins to solve puzzles and in the process identify the culprit. The Secret Lab has been sealed since 1972 due to a suspected LIE virus. An hour to problem solve and recreate a vaccine to save Edinburgh from imminent destruction. The newly opened Cutting Room revolves around a cold case serial killer. 5 new bodies discovered still alive in need of 5 replacement organs to survive. Crack the codes and save the victims………
How did Locked In Edinburgh get started?
Our journey into Escape Games started with playing a couple of Edinburgh rooms and feeling the buzz that comes with successfully completing a good escape room. We finished the games thinking we could probably design them better!
Heidi already had an office at Summerhall (formerly The University of Edinburgh Royal (Dick) School of Veterinary Studies) and was aware that part of the building was basically derelict and mostly unused. The idea began to create an authentic room themed on the original use of the building.

How important are props to a good escape room? 

In terms of prop buying, we are lucky enough to recycle a lot of props from things that other people at Summerhall throw into the skip. It’s not about saving money, it’s about keeping our rooms true to the theme and feeling like the original old building that we inhabit. When we buy items they must be in keeping with the age, theme and above all robust to stand up to inquisitive players. Often we look at an item and judge whether it will withstand being dropped or thrown about a room! Harsh but realistically a few players are what we describe as disruptive and tend to be destructive with our prized finds.
So what’s next for Locked In Edinburgh?
In terms of the future, we’ve just opened our new ‘Cutting Room’ and feedback is favourable. There’s always a lot of secrecy surrounding escape rooms so we’re not giving anything away…….. except there’s always a new room in the pipeline!

The Best Vintage TV Stand: Scaramanga’s Recommendations

Searching for the perfect vintage TV stand is challenging. Especially if you really want to find a unique and original one. Scaramanga are specialists in searching for and restoring stylish vintage furniture. So whether you live in a modern, eclectic or traditionally styled home you’ll find our recommendations useful. Continue to read about: the best size, style and we show our current stock of vintage TV stands.

Modern day uses for old pieces of furniture. Remembering that it’s very unlikely that you’ll find a vintage TV stand for a LCD / plasma TV that was built to be used for a TV. Until 20 years ago TV were so deep they really were boxes. So TV stands were really cabinets with spaces for a heavy TV. Vintage stands were really cumbersome and often took up so much space that they were usually in the corner of a living room or lounge. Today TVs are lighter, bigger and slimmer.

Image: Second Life Marketplace

Vintage TV Stand Dimensions:

You probably want a TV stand that’s at least the same width as your TV. Any narrower and it could get knocked off, you may not have enough storage space and it may not look as if it’s in proportion. The height should be between 50cm and 75cm from the ground (to avoid straining your neck) and the depth (distance from front to back) should be between 30cm and 50cm.

Vintage TV Stand Styling:

So if you’re looking to style a livingroom with authentic antique and vintage livingroom furniture and don’t want a new vintage style stand then the best idea is to look for piece of vintage furniture that has a has drawers and / or cupboard doors for DVDs, cables and remotes.

You might consider an industrial style vintage TV stand – one that might have been used in an office, school classroom, factory or shop. It’s likely to have a mix of metal and wood and it might look strong with bolts and obvious reinforced joints. If it’s old it might also show signs of wear and tear. Furniture made before and just after the war were incredibly well made and built to last for many years.

A country-style TV stand is likely to be symmetrical with simple drawers and cupboards. It might be painted a classic off white or pastel colour. Or a natural soft wood like pine or a stronger hardwood like oak.

Scaramanga Vintage TV Stand Recommendations:

TV stand storage

We don’t have a wide selection of vintage TV stands for TVs. However, the few we do have are original and totally unique. You’re unlikely to find similar pieces elsewhere. Our top picks were originally used as desks by merchants to store money, receipts and records and the tops were used for writing receipts in India traditional bazaars. Traditionally merchants sit cross legged behind their desks so they are quite low. The bigger the desks the grander the merchant! Artisans also used the compact worktops for making jewellery would have used the drawers for storing traditional tools and materials. Finished pieces of jewellery would have been displayed in small glass display cabinets next to their worktops.

vintage chest of drawers used as a TV stand

They all show signs of having been used daily. There are dents, marks and irregular edges. Often the handles are mismatched and there are obvious signs of historic repair work.

Antique and Vintage Furniture Restoration – imperfectly perfect:

We spend a lot of time searching for the best vintage and antique furniture. We don’t just buy any old piece. We look for unique functional furniture that has character, patina and a story to tell. We look for furniture that can be used for purposes that are completely different to their original or current use. Everyone (almost everyone has a LCD or plasma TV so we look for furniture that can be used as a vintage TV stand. People want to know as much as they can about old furniture; where is it from? Who used it? What it was used for? And how old it is? Are some of the many questions we are asked about our furniture.

vintage furniture hunter

 

We try to preserve as much of the character as we can, which means we don’t chemically strip the desks or workbenches, because this would remove the years of built up colour, wear and use. We simply ensure their joints are structurally strong, then simply wash them with a mild detergent then wax the wood to nourish and bring back some of the natural colour. We aim to simply make our vintage furniture useable for another generation. We want furniture to look as if it has been used for many years in a shop or workshop.

Our restorers have many years of refurbishing, repairing and making furniture. Ratna has been working with wood for over 30 years. His father was a carpenter as was his grand-father, great grand-father and great great-grand father … His brother and son are also carpenters. Read about how Bill restores our wooden chests.

Leather Bag Look Back

With the launch of our brand new summer collection fast approaching, we thought we would take this time to look back at our previous collections. From the original Scaramanga design, to our most recent leather bag collection, Scaramanga has come along way throughout the years. We started off with the classic satchel and branched out to unique designs in recent years. What better way to celebrate a new collection than take a look back at our previous collections first!

leather bags for men

The Classic Satchel Bag

What better way to start than our first bag design, the leather Satchel bag! Our satchel collection has developed over the years to offer a wide range of options. The original satchel design was based on the old vintage school satchels from the middle of the last century. This truly classic accessory is a timeless design that would make a great impression with your current collection. The hunter leather adds to the vintage style. The natural leather has a distressed finish that creates a classic Scaramanga distressed look.

One of our most popular satchels are the medium satchels with pocket and handle. The medium satchel is the perfect leather bag for long commutes and work life. You can fit up to a 15” laptop as well as a wide range of work essentials. You can also use this bag for overnight clothes or to show off around town. The small pocket is perfect for keeping small essentials such as cables or pen drives. We have updated the lining in the bag over the years. We have a gorgeous grey lining to give your bag a touch of modern style.

If you are looking to upgrade your travel bag, the large Overlander would make the perfect choice. This bag is large enough to be used as hand luggage for your next long-haul flight, but is also compact enough to carry as an everyday bag.
