We love the mix of vintage and contemporary homeware at HomePlace. All pieces are carefully considered in this beautifully curated range. Both old and new sit along side each other so well.

There’s great pieces to add character and texture to an interior. The homewares would also make great gifts, especially the unique vintage pieces.

They say;

Homeplace was founded on the basis that homes should tell a story about their inhabitants.

And our aim is to provide our customers with an eclectic but carefully considered selection of vintage, mid century, retro and contemporary furniture, lighting and homeware, so they are able to mix styles, eras, colours and textures to create homes that have as much personality as they do.

We source items which we love and which we hope you will do too. We are passionate about great design – contemporary as well as Mid Century but we are also fans of the quirky and the whimsical..and we like nothing better than mixing them all up to create eclectic interiors with heaps of individuality.

The idea of incorporating vintage pieces into the home as a means for a more sustainable way of living is also important to us here at Homeplace – for today’s eco-conscious consumer, there is arguably no more environmentally friendly a way to furnish a home.

However, not everyone has the time to scour flea markets and fairs so Homeplace offers an edited selection of ever-changing eye catching vintage, Mid Century and retro pieces as well as an exciting range of well designed & interesting contemporary items that will happily sit alongside each other in the home.
