If you want mid century Scandinavian furniture then look no further than Chase & Sorensen, They source direct from Denmark so cut out the middle man and keep prices fairly reasonable, They also stock more contemporary brands like Royal CopenhagenH. Skjalm P., FRAMA, and Studio Arhoj.

2. The Old Cinema, Chiswick

The Old Cinema is a fantastic little place in West London, a former Edwardian Picture Palace, this building is now home to stock from Scandinavia, the USA, India to Eastern Europe. Perfect if you want to recreate that Mad Men apartment you fell in love with when watching the TV series.

3. Alfies Antique Market, Marylebone

A treasure trove of goodies awaits in central Marylebone.

We mentioned Alfies a few weeks back, definitely a great place in central London to find that select piece you've dreamed of having, just be prepared to bring your wallet as many are collector's items.

4. Crystal Palace Antiques, Crystal Palace

Apparently London's biggest Antique Emporium.

Crystal Palace is a real mecca for antique shops but Crystal Palace Antiques is the biggest and the best in our opinion. Four floors of vintage furniture and homeware is more than enough to satisfy any purveyor of classic decor!

5. Retro Zebra Furniture, Hackney

This warehouse of 50s, 60s, 70s vintage furniture can only be viewed by appointment only but is the haven to find hidden gems when it comes to furniture and home decor. Book ahead for a weekend of pottering around a big dark building full of amazing finds to make your friends jealous.
