An original and exceptional antique Swedish Carpenter’s Bench, dating from the late 19th Century. An original rustic piece with a beautiful colour and patina. Totally original condition with some beautiful solid carpentry to the joint work. Two original wooden vices are still fully operational.

This gym bench and baskets dates to the 1970’s and came out of a school near Beeston, Cheshirel. Beautiful colour to the unusual American Tulipwood top and the perfect pairing with the black powder coated generous shoe baskets below. A really good size and weight to be a super stylish and practical piece at home now. We had to add new legs to this bench as the old ones were rusted through and needed to be fixed to the wall. No good for ease of use at home. The new legs are a good weight steel box section, sprayed gloss black. Very in keeping and just like the originals in size and style. The legs also have plastic end caps/ feet to stop any scratching on floors.
We have various sizes and styles old school/ gym/ locker room benches available with rows of four or five baskets wide. Or can make to your bespoke width. We can also change the colour of the legs if you have a specific colour scheme you would like to match to.
We do also have lot of original mid century gym hooks in stock (original chrome ones from Mount Kelly school, painted ones, stripped, chrome, numbered, on back boards etc. etc.)
Just drop us a message if you have some bespoke requirements and we will always do our best to accommodate.

A beautiful antique desk that looks very contemporary and stylish. This desk dates from the later part of the 19th Century (circa 1870-1890) and is therefore Victorian in origin. It is a beautifully coloured and aged oak with the most perfectly aged brass original handles. The weight of the desk is testament to the quality of oak used and the quality when originally produced, by skilled craftsmen.
The desk has plenty of storage with three drawers to the left pedestal, a central knee hole drawer and a double height filing style drawer to the right pedestal, with a further standard sized drawer above. Both pedestals also have pull out top shelves for drinks, resting books, mouse mat etc.
These desk are most commonly referred to as teachers desks now. We have sold a number of these old teachers desks and they never hang around for long.

A very cool old school science lab cabinet. Dating from the 1960’s the cabinet is heavy and constructed form solid teak with an Iroko veneer top. The cabinet is in very good original condition and the top has the perfectly aged and well used patina. There are obvious wear marks to the top which tell the story of use of this fantastic piece. The doors retain their original Lab location labels in engraved plastic.
With a generous double cupboard and two drawer above, the cabinet now offers plenty of old school cool styling with a huge dose of practicality. Perfect as a drinks cabinet, book store, magazines etc etc. We can repaint the bottom black strip if you prefer. We like it showing the original wear but it is easy to re paint in a matt black if you prefer a more ‘refurbished’ look.
We also have two of these units with single door and drawer above available.
