MHRetroFurniture was started by myself in 2014.
I have worked for many years in the secondhand furniture & antique world & became increasingly disillusioned by the amount of “brown” 1930`s to 1970`s furniture that I saw being broken up & sent to landfill.
I decided to do something about it & MHRetroFurniture was born
Each piece is totally unique, and is lovingly restored & given a whole new lease of life.
I repair if necessary, and then apply 2 coats of undercoat / primer, and then 2 to 3 coats of topcoat, using only Farrow & Ball and other quality paints. Depending on the paint used, some pieces are then hand-waxed to seal them.
I then wallpaper or use vintage comic strip sections to give it the “quirky factor”, this then being given a minimum of 2coats of non-yellowing varnish.
At present I sell mainly at Vintage Fairs across the South of England, & have been amazed by the amount of positive feedback and repeat orders I have received.
I hope you enjoy looking through my website & I am always happy to put your ideas into practice.
Please contact me if you would like to discuss your thoughts.
