It might not feel like it with the current weather conditions, but it's not long until that freshness of spring will be upon us and we will be looking for ways to spruce up our interiors. Vintage homeware is such a great way to inject some style into your home, whether you have a retro or more contemporary aesthetic.
Just like with vintage clothing, when it comes to vintage homeware you can find very unique and well made items with bags of quality and modern appeal. A vintage lamp is a great addition to your living room, vintage glasses look great in a display cabinet or vintage bar and a vintage telephone is perfect for any home office or hallway space.
Here at My Vintage, we always have a diverse and unique selection of vintage homeware from decades gone by, and in this week's blog post I have picked out my top ten from our current stock. All items are currently available but of course they are unique and one-of-a-kind so if there is something you love, it is best to grab it before somebody else does!
