About Us

Who are we?

RetroNovia is your one stop vintage furniture & accessories shop for everything retro, vintage, upcycled, antique and quirky. We are a family run business and have a shop based on the outskirts of London in Ruislip Gardens, Middlesex. Come and browse our range of vintage furniture & accessories such as sideboards, dressing tables, tables & chairs, drinks cabinets, mirrors, trunks and quirky accessories. We particularly love furniture from the 50’s, 60’s and 70’s and specialise in Mid Century Modern Danish/Scandi style. We love pieces from G Plan, Ercol, Wrighton, Stag, McIntosh, Nathan and many other brands.

We love to offer something different.  If something can be recycled and brought back to it’s former glory we just love the challenge. We lovingly restore and upcycle furniture to a high standard so that it can have many more years of love with a new family or business.  RetroNovia also love to source unusual props and accessories. Do not hesitate to contact us if there is something in particular you are looking for.  

Want to create your own design?

We also love to make a statement on our pieces of furniture and love nothing more than being given the challenge of transforming an old unloved piece of furniture into a centre stage statement piece. We can either use a piece of furniture we have and design it to your specifications or source a particular style of furniture for you and then work with you to create it to your taste. Alternatively you may own a piece of furniture that you would like new life breathed into it. Together we can create something special using different paint techniques or wallpaper. Maybe you would like it to match your current decor?  RetroNovia can hand paint your furniture for you or maybe decoupage so that your dressing table or chest of drawers can match that lovely wallpaper you have in your bedroom.  We can also restore tired looking furniture to bring it back to its former glory contact us and we will make your dream a reality!

We can source that unusual item

Our aim is to help anyone who wants to purchase items  that are DIFFERENT for their home, business, shop, restaurant etc. You can refer to our blog for information on manufacturers, different styles, places to buy from, star buys that you cannot miss and anything quirky.  You can also contact us directly with any special requests and we will do the upmost to help you find what you want.

Why Upcycle Furniture?

We love furniture, accessories and props that we can upcycle and turn them into a much loved addition to someone’s home, shop or business. So what’s our mantra? Take a piece of furniture that is destined for the skip and transform it into something wonderful. It is it good for our planet to upcycle rather than dump. Vintage furniture and accessories deserve a  new lease of life. Future generations will benefit from this.

Our Motto

Our motto is to reuse and recycle these wonderful antique and vintage items so that they get a new lease of life and at the same time you will have a unique, personal item of good quality in your home that will also contribute to the world's carbon footprint.
