Johnny working on upcycling a vintage Halina Vicerory camera

Johnny working on giving a vintage Halina Vicerory camera a new purpose.

Vintage is a timeless beauty
There's just something about old vintage items from days gone - from the sophisticated elegant angles of a Bakelite telephone, to the leather clad vintage box cameras . Everything appears to have been a much higher quality compared to mass produced products of today.
When these aesthetically beautiful and high quality vintage items are no longer fit for use, often they will simply get thrown out, or end up sitting in a dusty old attic never to be seen for decades.
We take old worn out vintage items and give them a new purpose.
Design & Inspiration
Our projects are inspired by our love of all things vintage & retro -usually with an added modern twist. We draw inspiration from many design and genres throughout history including Steampunk, Art Deco, Retrofuturism, Pop Art, and many more.
Our process
We'll first come up with a design and sketch this down into a sketchbook (often several designs and then choose the best). Then with a lot of elbow grease and polish we'll set to work at removing decades of dirt and grime to try and bring the item back to it's former glory while keeping a lot of the vintage wear and patina which add to the character. Once cleaned , referring back to our sketch book we'll start working on the design - adding the electrical wiring, drivers, light fittings, and and decoration elements.
Many hours of work go into creating our work sometimes weeks and months. But once finished we can proudly display it, plug it in and stand back and admire the finished product before taking photos ready to be showcased on our website.
Not just a lamp - but a piece of art! 
A lot of care and attention goes into making every unique piece that we work on with many hours of craftsmanship and problem solving, upcycling by hand and re-purposing into stylish lamps. We use high quality light fittings that are in-keeping with the vintage style, and which also comply with all UK and EU legislation.
Our upcycled vintage items are not just lamps - they are pieces of art with a lot of time and effort put into creating every single piece, and will look great in any room.
