MadMen-esque retro chic

I found another treasure shop in Redfern – this one is called Our Space Interiors and is located at 120A Redfern Street Redfern. And this shop *can* be found in the Sydney urban walkabout guide under the “antiques, retro, vintage & oldwares” section.

I’m not quite at the setting up house stage of life (i’m still in the “buy stuff when you absolutely need it” stage) so i didn’t look at any of the prices… but the items in this shop felt special. Usually i hate gold… but this chair was so sweet i’ve been dreaming about it:

I’ll leave the subject of the dreams up to your own imagination… but let’s just say that i’m very glad MrO likes vintage furniture. It is likely we’ll own a chair like this one day. Maybe a red one.

I thought that this chrome and black lamp was a masterpiece, because you can’t really tell if it is old or modern:

The shelves of glassware really caught my eye. As a child i fancied myself to be an alchemist often creating concoctions using herbs, tea, food dyes & anything from mums kitchen… and storing them in beautiful coloured bottles to mature before “experimenting” the flavours on my little brother.

Sizzler was a great place to collect ingredients for some of my viler creations. But i digress.

I love the pretty colours:

And of course, this bar is awesome just because i can imagine Donald Draper standing next to it pouring himself a drink. I haven’t yet finished watching MadMen (soon starting series 4 so no spoilers please)… but it has already had a profound effect on me – in ways that i will perhaps expand upon another time.

The glass (or perspex?) MadMen style bar:

Yet another shop worth visiting in Redfern… especially if you’re interested in decking out your home in MadMen-esque retro chic vintage furniture. Ooh, i liked writing that sentence.
