Antique and vintage goods are both stylish and sustainable. 

They have a low carbon footprint thanks to their existing lifespan and they help reduce deforestation because no trees are being cut to produce them.

They help reduce landfill because, unlike mass-produced non-recyclables, they are high quality in material and craft, and are destined to outlive most other possessions.

Everything we buy interacts with the environment. Second hand furniture and accessories are not only unique, characterful and nostalgic, but also contribute to a sustainable home.

Material Spotlight | Bakelite

Bakelite is a type of phenolic resin, known for being very tactile and quintessentially art deco. It was invented by Belgian-born American chemist Leo Hendrik Baekeland in 1907. It was the first plastic made from synthetic components, and is prized for its durability and heat resistance. Bakelite was widely used in the early 20th century for a variety high-end home accessories, such as radios, telephones, kitchenware, and lighting. The use of Bakelite declined after WW2 with the introduction of cheaper plastics but it is still used on a small scale in art and jewellery making.

Due to its history and unique material properties, many vintage items made of bakelite are highly sought-after by collectors.
