We have had our minds set on sourcing some vintage furniture for the shop for some time now and we knew where we wanted to get it from. EU Vintage is Bouk Maijer’s retro European furniture company and fortunately for us it’s warehouse is based just outside Ripon.
Bouk takes trips once a month to Europe where he meets up with his network of dealers to source vintage furniture that he then transports back up to Yorkshire in his van. Many of the pieces are Scandinavian in either origin or design and so reminiscent of the furniture we have seen when visiting family over in Norway.
We have purchased two sofas and two chairs and commissioned Bouk to find us another of each on his next trip departing in the middle of August.
Our fall back options were items from this collection by Made.com, we liked the colours and the compact nature of the furniture but felt they lacked a bit of character. What do you think? Did we make the right choice?
