    (Quintessential) Duck Egg Blue

    (Quintessential) Duck Egg Blue

    At Quintessential Cool we have a special affinity for anyone who also uses the word Quintessential in their brand, such is the case with Quintessential Duck Egg Blue. Sometimes they leave off the quintessential part, I'm not sure why, perhaps some of their products are merely essential? In any case, we think they're pretty special.

    What is particularly impressive about their Darling St store is the obvious painstaking effort that goes into the ever changing arrangement of the wonderful assortment of pieces on offer, especially in the display window. They always manage to showcase each item in a way that inspires immediate onset of retail lust.

    You can't help but admire such dedication and attention to detail, but it's plain to see that they do it because it pleases them, and in turn it pleases their customers, and that is a great way to run a business.

    Vampt Vintage Design

    Vampt Vintage Design

    Vampt imports and restores vintage furniture featuring classic forms from some of the 20th century's most celebrated designers from Norway, Denmark, Sweden and Holland.

    One of the delights of visiting their spacious Surry Hills showroom is that the friendly shop assistants are a rich source of facts about the history and pedigree of many of the pieces on offer.

    Some of us at Quintessential Cool grew up in homes in 70s Australia that featured exactly this style of furniture, for a brief but glorious period back then it was chic but the plain angular lines of these pieces somehow aged poorly and took on a banal drabness in later decades. Thankfully a new generation has developed a taste for these classic designs and they've experienced a recent surge in popularity as a result.

    Vampt's diverse range of furniture, lighting and homewares is a retro dream.
