Welcome to Classic Modern Vintage Design

Established online since 2003, Classic Modern offers original vintage collectable mid to late 20th century homeware – with a focus on textiles and lighting from the 1950s, 60s and 70s in addition to a wide range of accessories including kitchen utensils, clocks, plant pots, vases and other household items. Our styles range from classic Scandinavian midcentury modern through abstract geometric, op-art, space-age and pop-art to psychedelic. From our base in London, UK we travel widely to source each item individually, selecting only the very best to supply our customers around the globe, many of whom come back to us again and again.

Classic Modern is part of the Midmodmedia Group, which also includes vintage lighting specialist Relumination.co.uk, the ID Your Vintage Danish Lights and ID Your Danish Modern reference sites and other midcentury modern-related sites including Vintage Danish Lights Blog and the Jo Hammerborg site.

Classic Modern Design Spotlight

Our Design Spotlight profiles zoom in for a closer look at the background and history of a select line-up of mid 20th century modern designers and producers. When we began writing these profiles in 2003 we chose to focus on people and organisations whose role in creating some of our favourite midcentury modern designs was not widely known, and about whom publicly accessible information was virtually non-existent at the time. They are all of course much better known today, and all continue to stand the test of time.
