Yes, we have been in business for two years now and how quickly it has flown!
We take some time here to reflect on what we have achieved.
Vintage Matters launched online in October 2015 and we held our first pop up event, at West Elm UK, who have continued to be a great support, as we now have a regular pop up event at the store every three months.
Soon after launch, we were contacted by a design studio, with a brief to supply vintage furniture and accessories to a “an extremely awesome PR, social media and experiential agency”, based in Old Street, London, for their new office space. How could we say no?!
You can read a feature about Vintage Matters, sourcing and supplying vintage furniture and accessories to Citizen, at INEX magazine.
In the Spring of 2016, we were lucky enough and very excited to have our home featured in 25 Beautiful Homes magazine.
In the commercial sector, we were very happy to supply Havas, an award-winning, global advertising and PR company, who were moving to a new HQ, called HKX (Havas Kings Cross) where we supplied vintage furniture for their new cafe, restaurant and reception area.
Our biggest commercial project, was to supply Amazon’s new headquarters in Shoreditch, London with Mid Century and industrial pieces for their reception area.
We were absolutely delighted to see it all in situ and think it looks pretty cool, though we say so ourselves!
In retail, we have supplied prestigious brands, including Le Labo Fragrances, Selfridges, Filson, Finistere, Shinola, Home Sense and numerous cafes and restaurants.
Our latest project was for Topshop who collaborated with Netflix on the launch of the second season of Stranger Things!
Vintage Matters has been featured in The Metro, Warehouse Home, Reclaim Magazine, to name a few, as well as numerous blogs.

With the popularity of our reclaimed and vintage letters and letter lights, we launched thelettermenuk on Instagram, which is dedicated to our letters only.
We have over 150 letters online and many m,ore that we are in the process of cleaning and photographing. This would make a great personal gift for someone this Christmas, so have a look or contact [email protected] if you are after a certain letter that you cannot see online.
Finally, we felt we needed to expand our team, so now have a new member on board, who is proving very popular…..
