home: follow friday [ Retroverse Vintage ]
As well as fashion clothing, Retroverse Vintage has a beautifully curated selection vintage homewares, including glassware, ceramics and candle holders.
Perfect pieces for the home that would make wonderful gifts, bringing colour and style to accessorise a room, perfectly.
With a great ethos behind starting business the collection reflects the values of not choosing throw away style, and know that each piece is ethical and with history.
We hand-pick and carefully curate Vintage Clothing & Homeware from around the world. Our mission is to source the highest quality pieces whilst helping the planet one vintage piece at a time.
Founder, Ellie began her business journey 3 years ago after leaving a job in fashion buying to start Retroverse Vintage. Frustrated by the throwaway world of fast, expensive, branded consumer fashion, she felt like she was part of the problem and wanted to be part of the solution.
home: featured [ Homeplace ]
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.
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.

We often are hunting for that perfect vintage find in homeware and furniture. Midcentury sofas are popular and seen in many current interior trend boards and inspiration, but finding an original in great condition isn’t easier and not everyone wants to doer-upper!
We found this great little two seater sofa in the style of our midcentury favourite. The tone of the wood, the silhouette and the upholstery are all perfect to recreate the retro look.
