Retro Living was established by passionate collector Malcolm Russell five years ago who now works from his shop in Marylebone and at The Old Cinema in Chiswick. The shop stocks a large range of furniture from designers including Niels Moller, Arne Jacobson, Dyrlund and Hans Wegner. You will also find lighting, object d'art and contemporary art alongside collectable vintage posters, limited edition screen prints, lenticulars and new art including sculpted paper artist Alberto Fusco.
Local specialised artisans are employed to restore the majority of stock and keep its originality. Lighting is re-wired to the required standards. Furniture is re-upholstered in either contemporary or vintage fabrics and a range of vintage cushions beautifully created by Nichollette Yardley-Moore can be seen utilising vintage fabrics and trimmings.
Rupert Sheehan from The Design Spectrum and Maureen Silverman from Planet Bazaar have also recently joined this collaborative shop after leaving the Stables in Camden.
