Retro Telephone FAQs 

The 70's called! They want their phones back. Few vintage items have achieved such staunch popularity as the retro telephone, which has been given a new lease of life in minimalist interiors that want something bulky, brash and gorgeous (and timeless and nostalgic) for a table or kitchen side-top. Some interesting facts can be gleaned from our guide to retro phones, shedding light on the ever-changing history behind a piece of tech we take for granted.

However, if you’re still unsure about how a vintage phone works, or how it’ll compliment your home, then read on as we answer some common queries. We don’t want to leave you off the hook, after all…

  1. Do they always have an ‘authentic’ ring?

  2. Only if you like. There’s a certain pleasure to be had from a 60’s-esque ringtone clattering through your hallway, but our ring settings have an on/off switch, as we know 7am calls might be a bit much if they’re literally full of bells and whistles.

  3. Where can I mount it?

  4. Simply put – wherever you have a landline connection. Older properties might have strategically-placed phone jacks in areas such as the kitchen or hallway. For the average home, your phone line will likely be elsewhere, perhaps beside an internet port. So take a look for yours before you buy. Alternatively a simple phone extension lead will do the trick. 

  5. Do they have modern buttons?

  6. Never fear – although we stock phones that feature classic design traits such as rotary dials, the vast majority of our models offer push-button dialling, callback options and a modern chord design that resists tangling.

Kids Teepee Cabin Bed

Fantastic bed! My daughter loves this as do I, it is really well made and heavy and was relatively easy to assemble. It gives my daughters room a really magical feel, would definitely recommend.

Uuni 3 Wood-Fired Pizza Oven

So easy to use and produces simply excellent pizzas. Wood fire oven pizzas taste so much better and in the UUNI they cook very quickly indeed, (you'll need to turn them every thirty seconds or so for the perfect pizza). Well made product and only took fifteen minutes to assemble - even the correct tools were provided so no digging around in my toolbox.

The Garden Igloo 360 Dome

I love our igloo. Not too hard to put up, it's lovely to sit inside as the nights are drawing in. It's like a conservatory. Spacious too. We've added some fairy lights and candles. There is a slight smell of pvc but the fragranced candles disguise it. Looking forward to using it in the summer too and will buy the canvas cover. I may even put some flooring down to make it even cosier!

Kubu Rattan Hanging Lamp
