If it ain’t broke don’t fix it, so the saying goes. Vintage items are enjoying a renaissance that doesn’t seem to be ending anytime soon, and it isn’t hard to see why.
Everyone has a bit of retro-fetishism inside, and anyway, why shouldn’t we fix up our modern interiors with things that are just too good to throw away or be improved upon? Cuckooland is well and truly tuned in to the retro new-wave, and we’ve got some incredible picks for the vintage aficionado to sort through. Retro Telephones, for instance, achieve a striking effect when set against clean, white surfaces. These chunky landlines can offset thin glass and curved tables with striking effect, adding bold variety to your décor. Quite apart from the sheer novelty of holding a lovingly crafted handle to your ear, their heavyweight design – once a consequence of old technology – now seems a genius way to create a talking point, refocusing the phone as a viable furnishing piece.
Record Record Players, too, have resurged into the public consciousness. Vinyl sales are steadily rising every year, and events like World Record Day do great things for promoting the timeless pleasure of a scratch needle and raw, sparky listening experiences. From pick-up-and-pack suitcase models, to table-set gramophone style devices meant for the swish of a velvet living room curtain, there’s no shortage of ways to combine new and classic means of broadcasting your favourite tunes. Take a look through our collection and start spinning with possibilities!
Our haberdashery of vintage furniture and accessories doesn’t end there, though; Cuckooland is proud to supply a higgledy piggledy collection of unusual gifts that toe the line between what’s expected and what isn’t of established design features. Whether you’re seeking coffee tables that can hold the weight of expectation on their cast-iron legs, bar stools with old-school swagger, or classy storage units, we stock everything under the sun for the dedicated retrophile. So twirl that moustache, and drop any preconceptions you might have, because some benchmarks are just too good to forget about!
The treehouse beds are pure magic.
The beds create a fairytale atmosphere and the construction is solid, a substantial piece of furniture. It was well worth the effort to import from Europe,
there is nothing like them that I could find in the US.
