The 1950s saw a boom in furniture production, with new, minimalist styles emerging such as those from the Danish modern period. Clean designs featuring crisp lines and fresh industrial materials marked the shift away from the elaborate ornamentation and intricate decoration of earlier furniture movements. Alongside this new Scandi artistic influence came a change in the way that people led their lives. As the economy steadily grew in post-war years, more people were able to afford to throw have lavish dinner parties at home, with serving trolleys being a practical and space-saving solution for moving food around in style.

Shopping for vintage serving trolliesVintage shopping is like an adventure with plenty of surprises along the way. You never know quite what treasures you’re going to unearth. Discover hidden gems and nostalgia-inducing blasts from the past by choosing vintage shopping instead of buying everything new. Pre-loved pieces tell a story and offer a little slice of history, which can only enhance the narrative of your interior design. Vintage serving trolleys bring charm and character to your home, and in themselves transform what might be a practical item into an artistic statement.
It is also true to say that many items of vintage furniture are of a much higher quality than new furniture and cheap flat pack items that are rushed off the production line using cheap materials. Instead, buying vintage is an investment for the future – for both your home and your wallet.
