Here at Scaramanga, we stock a marvellous range of leather satchels with matching accessories, journals, sketchbooks and photograph albums, but we also sell an array of beautifully eclectic vintage and retro homewares and interiors. Here’s our pick of the top five home accessories that will make your space that extra bit special.
Vintage Kitchen Unit, £350.00
If you’re looking for that one perfect item of vintage furniture, look no further than the Scaramanga vintage kitchen unit, £350, an authentic kitchen unit dating from the 1960’s. Originally used for storing canned goods and crockery, this beautiful unit consists of numerous upper and lower cupboards, two drawers, and a drop-down shelf. While it would have almost certainly started its life in a kitchen somewhere, the spacious interior and handy work surface would make an ideal addition to any room in the house – be it as a craft or work unit, a sideboard in the lounge, or even as a dressing table in the bedroom.
Vintage Suitcase, £70.00
Are you looking for a storage solution with a difference? Perhaps you need somewhere to keep your accessories or craft supplies, but don’t fancy turning to the high street for an answer? Here at Scaramanga, we stock a large range of vintage suitcases that are ideal for storing your smaller items. Our vintage suitcase, £70, measures a generous W67cmxD43XH23 – the perfect size to store scarves, hats or out of season clothing. Use them individually, or stack them up and create a fun vintage display – either way, they’ll add a great retro touch to any room.
If you’re a retro or vintage fan, you’ll undoubtedly love these dining chairs by Benchairs, made in the 50s and 60s. They ooze classic British styling from just after WWII. Simple curved lines and tapered legs. These days, mid-century retro dining chairs, tables and benches are highly sought after, which makes our four dining chairs, £130, worth their weight in vintage gold. Perfect when teamed with a retro wooden or formica table, these beautiful vintage chairs are made from dark beech and elm Windsor, and are complete with immaculate seats and the distinctive tapered leg.
Vintage Window -Frame Mirrors, From £135.00
If you’re keen on recycling and re-using battered, abandoned and forgotten items, you’re going to love our selection of vintage mirrors here at Scaramanga. We’ve taken a number of old, thick window frames, restored them to their former glory, and then securely fitted a mirror in the place of a pane of glass to create a truly unique home accessory. The window frames are architectural salvage, and have been made from tropical hardwoods such as teak and mango wood – each one is different, and are available in a variety of colours. The dark wood vintage framed mirror, £140, has an elegant feel, and would be at home over the fireplace in a traditional lounge, while the turquoise old wooden mirror, £140, has a more distressed finish, and would fit in well to a more relaxed setting.
Vintage Apple Crates, £82.50
Whether you’re looking for a home for your books or your childrens toys, your wine or your pot plants, we’ve got the ultimate in retro storage here at Scaramanga. Our vintage apple crates, £82.50 for a set of three, date from the 1960s, and were originally used on farms and smallholdings to store produce. We’ve sanded and waxed them to bring them back to life, and now they’re waiting to keep your items in order – measuring a large W50cmxD40XH27, they’ll keep everything neat and tidy, be it blankets or wine.
