Shake Up Your Storage Solutions

Storage solutions for those essential items that you do not necessarily want out on display does not need to be boring or ugly. There are many stylish vintage accessories that double up as storage. 

For instance, if you are after an industrial feel with a vintage twist consider our Vintage Victorian Toolmaker's Chest. An authentic, early Victorian piece, that features a symbolic ‘treasure chest’ design. The 19th century chest provides ample storage and even has a handy top drawer with two secret compartments. It really is an extraordinary product with a story to tell.

Go Wild & Embrace Animal Themed Accessories

Animal print is bang on trend and is often the perfect statement pattern to create an impact with. For instance, Peppermill’s Zebra Hide Rug, is a show stopping vintage piece, dating back to the 1960’s. This rug is an incredibly versatile piece and would look right at home in a monochrome interior or a traditional country style living room or dining room.

Peppermill has a wide range of antique wall mounted Taxidermy Animal Heads to choose from, including a Large Bull, African Warthog, Wild Boar and Water Buffalo. They certainly provide a talking point and are the ideal centrepiece.
