Unlock the charm of the past with this meticulously preserved 1950s wardrobe, a timeless treasure that has been cherished and lovingly maintained by its original owner. It’s a little piece of furniture history that has now been restyled with a fresh, modern, and floral twist, combining the elegance of mid-century design with contemporary aesthetics, whilst retaining the essence of its original charm.

Given this piece’s heritage, the choice of a 1950s-style wallpaper by Lust Home, aptly named "Creatures of the Night", in the stunning Garnet Red and Aqua Blue colourway, was the obvious choice, showcasing, as it does, big blousy roses reminiscent of that era with moths drawn irresistibly toward its contents. The result is a fusion of vintage allure and contemporary design.

Open the door to reveal an interior painted in a complementary, soothing, pale avocado green, bringing a touch of tranquillity, whilst the vivid bright pink punch of the hanging rail infuses energy and character, and adds just a touch more pizzazz.

Every inch of this wardrobe has been meticulously styled, from the door and front to the sides, with custom turquoise blue paint accents to the trim mouldings, highlighting the classic lines of the piece. And, as if that isn’t enough, preserving its authenticity, the single door still has its original working lock and key, perfect for securing

Lightweight, compact, and bijou are the perfect credentials this wardrobe offers for versatility. It can be a glamorous addition to any guest room, child's or teenager's bedroom. Or why not utilise it to create a stunning and welcoming arrival in your hallway, in which you can store your coats, shoes and boots, keeping the entrance to your home tidy and organised? Being lightweight makes it a breeze and versatile to manoeuvre around your home if you choose to change or rearrange your decor.

And just in case you didn’t know….. CWS, founded in around 1860, stands for Co-operative Wholesale Society and was the forerunner of the Co-op Group we know today.
So, don’t miss your chance to own this stunning piece, perfectly formed, beautifully reimagined, with a history and pedigree that just adds to its allure.

"They are beautiful. I don’t like to match furniture and love mish mash, quirky and odd looking things lol. I absolutely love them. My house is 203 years old and is grade II listed. I think it makes an old cottage come alive and puts a modern twist on it. I love furniture that tells a story or gets people talking at a house party".

"I am very pleased with the look and quality of the sideboard and enclose a photo of it in-situ in our hallway"

Vintage Drinks Cabinet

I have just unpacked the drinks cabinet now (I was out yesterday) Please thank the delivery driver, who arrived before the designated time! (When does that ever happen!) The photos are to show that it is safe. The packaging was on point. I will send pics when the cabinet is in its new home (extension- kitchen/living room). I absolutely love it. Please let Fi know. Thank you so much for the special service that you have provided.
