Chicwick’s secret vintage department store
Now, this hidden gem is something that will make all of you vintage worshipers and retro doll’s jump up with excitement! A portal back in time and jam packed with delights from the 19th century all the way through to the 90′s, my partner spotted the Old Cinema vintage furniture shop not long ago, proudly sat amongst an array of cafes and shops in Chiswick, london.
He knew I would just fall in love with it. And I have! The quirky Aladdin’s cave, is not one to be missed and is ranked 15th out of 50 in this years Independent’s UK’s best furniture shops!
The Old Cinema isn’t just a posh back street car boot sale, oh no, the pieces inside where to die for! Deco tables and chairs, french chic cabinets, antique desks and “Happy Days” style shop signs, every corner I turned there was something to quench all tastes. They even support independent designers and display their work in a dedicated room on the first floor.
If you’re looking for a bargain this place may not be the best, as all the pieces are of high quality which is reflected in the prices. A cabinet would easily set you back £400-600 and a chair £80-£150. Putting that aside, this vintage furniture department store is fantastic even just for a walk around or to generate some design inspiration. You’ll find The Old Cinema at 160 Chiswick High street or you can have a pre-rummage on their website! We love you guys!Images: Old Cinema
