A haven of perfect vintage, midcentury and Scandinavian design under one roof. The range of superb condition vintage pieces at PIB is extensive and includes chairs, tables, lighting, storage, and more. 

They say: 

Style, Quality, and Everlasting: The PIB Concept

PIB was founded because we couldn’t find furniture which combined style & quality online. The products were either of bad quality, badly presented or in the middle of long lists with no coherence of styles.




Currently there are great ‘back to school’ special discounts on various pieces running until 25th September.

This summer sees a trend that embraces the natural Earth, sustainability and grounding ourselves with the planet we walk on. 

Bringing together a natural inspired set of colour palettes;  

‘This colour scheme draws from a palette taken from natural rocks, deserts, earth and trees featuring pale rose, peach, cinnamon, tan, ochre, burnt orange, burgundy and terracotta.’
LondonEssentials.com 

It creates a warm interior and encourages a slower pace. The tones compliment each other and work along side each other alike to the natural world. 

Using tones of each shade, build up this look through soft furnishings, furniture and all the way to wall finishes. Embrace textured coloured wall papers, feature walls in painted choices and subtle texture and pattern in throws and cushions including the use of silks, linens, weaves and matt finishes in ceramics and furniture.
