Vintage Fairground

Filter By

The fairground is an evocative experience, conjuring up images of excitement, childhood fun and thrills. With very distinctive-looking accessories and decorations, the fairground has a style all of its own. However, in recent years apparel and equipment from the fairground is being reinvented as quirky and unique decorations for the home. From wall hangings to statues and even furniture, there’s something very satisfying about such unorthodox pieces. Here at Interior we love breathing new life into retro and antique items and we’ve got a great collection of vintage fairground furniture and accessories. Browse through our online catalogue and you’ll discover a fascinating array of fairground-themed items.

Vintage fairground: be part of the carnival

There’s something mesmerising about the fairground, almost like stepping into another world. With brightly painted boards, signs and displays as well as a whole host of characters, the memorabilia from fairgrounds is highly collectable.

If you’re interested in decor which is offbeat and eclectic, vintage fairground items could provide a real note of interest in any room. The look of the fairground is unmistakably vintage and stylised so it works well alongside other retro items.

Genuine vintage fairground items for the home are bang on trend, making them hot property with a growing interest. This can make them a wise investment, whether you opt for a statue for your dresser or metal signs to hang on the wall.

Why choose vintage fairground pieces?

Quite aside from the colourful characters which are instantly irresistible, there are lots of reasons to opt for vintage fairground items for your home.

Modern signs are made from vinyl and plastic which means that traditional sign-writing and painting are skills which are rapidly dying away. This makes authentic retro items not just potentially valuable, but increasingly rare, a piece of home decor which can’t be easily found.

Fairground decor was very carefully constructed; the appearance was a major factor in attracting customers to the ride! The vibrant colours and striking designs, including some with a distinctly spooky slant, combine to great effect. In the home, you only need a few pieces of fairground decor to make a big impact.

Every item was made to be taken on the road, and displayed in every town around the country. Any items which were fragile or flimsy simply wouldn’t have lasted. Therefore, when you buy an upcycled piece of fairground decoration, you know that it’s been created by a master craftsman and built to endure.

This journey is a large part of the attraction too; when you buy vintage, you’re breathing life into old stories from the past. Every vintage and antique item has their own history, and that’s never been more the case than with pieces from the fairground. When you look at your statue you can imagine the sights it must have seen during its lifetime, and the places it has visited. That entire collection of experiences is contained within that one item…and it’s now standing in your living room. Or perhaps your bedroom!
