Rustic and Retro
The name came from our personal love of all things rustic and all things retro. As children of the 60’s and 70’s we’ve seen so many revivals of things we knew and loved, were part of our families and close relatives. We just love to reminisce over the design, colour and feel of some of the products of our day.
As we started to furnish our own homes, we couldn’t help but turn to the past to look for unique lighting, furniture and decorations for ourselves. This time we stepped back to the era’s of our parents and grandparents, from the 50’s to the roaring 20’s. They certainly knew about good design back then.
As we travelled through the UK and Europe we found small pockets of stores, buyers, sellers and collectors who loved what we loved too. The more we talked to others the more people we found who wanted us to supply them with these unique pieces of lighting and home decor. So, Rustic & Retro was born.
We source unique and individual pieces from within the UK and Europe. We buy bulk items and one-off items that show off the style of the day, but would equally look at home in todays modern simple homes. The items are restored to their former glory and where necessary brought up to the latest safety and wiring standards.
We love what we do, and are only happy when you are happy. We are delighted to answer questions, provide detailed photographs and sizing, make recommendations, give advice. Whatever you need to feel comfortable you’re making the right choice. We source items for a huge range of customers. From individual pieces for the modern home, to a range of lighting and decor for a period creation. We work with home and office designers, architects and consultants to obtain feature pieces for their projects.
