Vintage and Retro to sell?
We are always looking to buy beautiful retro, vintage and mid-century furniture, art, lighting, glass, ceramics and smalls at Etch Interiors.
If you have anything to sell that you think we may be interested in, please send some photos through to Jim on 07523 944374, or give him a call/text. Alternatively, if you can't send by phone, please email us at email@example.com and we'll come back to you as soon as possible.
We offer honest and competitive prices for the right items and are especially interested in mid to higher end British and Scandinavian pieces.
What are we looking for?
We have a special fondness for Danish designs from the likes of Arne Jacobsen, Arne Vodder, Illum Wikkelso, Johannes Andersen, Peter Hvidt and Orla Molgaard-Nielsen, Ib Kofod Larsen, Nils Jonsson, Arne Hovmand Olsen, Erik Buck, Ole Wanscher, Niels Koefoed and Kurt Ostervig.
We are always interested in anything produced by France and Son (our personal favourite) or CFC Silkeborg, and likewise from producers such as Fritz Hansen, Troeds, Soborg Mobler and Frem Rojle.
The sideboard below is a stunning example of an Ib Kofod Larsen design for British firm GPlan (who we're big fans of) and we would love to hear from you if you are selling any furniture from other British producers like McIntosh, Ercol, Stonehill, White and Newton, Younger, Ladderax, Merrow Associates and Stag. Items retailed in stores such as Heals or Chaplins here in Newcastle in the 60s and 70s are always interesting to us too.
What do we buy?
Anything from the 50s to 80s really. For the big stuff, we buy lots of teak, and rosewood is a favourite. Sideboards are a big favourite as are modular wall systems, dining sets (tables and chairs) and statement lounge chairs and armchairs with that retro vibe to them. Our customers are always looking for desks and dressing tables too.
We love colourful glass and west german pottery which complements the retro furniture that is the staple of our business.
Where do we collect furniture from?
The short answer to that is pretty much anywhere! We have a trusted friendly team of couriers who we use around the UK so collections are really straightforward. We regularly collect around Northumberland and Tyne and Wear of course, and cover Leeds, Bradford, Manchester and Liverpool, Cambridge and the South East into Kent, Sussex and London. Edinburgh isn't far from our base in Newcastle upon Tyne so we head into Scotland quite regularly, and one of our couriers is based in Wales so we pick up there too.
Please contact Jim on 07523 944374 for a confidential conversation about anything that you are looking to sell.
