Metroretro Ltd

Now one of the UK’s leading vintage and retro furniture houses, Metroretro has grown from a Camden Market stall in London in the early 1990s, via two London shops to a warehouse-based online business. We supply commercial and private customers with an eclectic mix of vintage and industrial furniture, along with decorative props for all manner of occasions.

We are often called upon to create and source unique, handmade furniture pieces for private and commercial customers alike. You can see some of our commercial clients at the bottom of this page.

In the last ten years a range of our own furniture has also been developed incorporating reclaimed materials, all of which is handmade in East Anglia. The prop hire side of the business incorporates all of the stock for sale, in addition to items that are only available to hire. Situated on a picturesque farm in rural Essex, our furniture warehouse and workshop are open by appointment.

Please call Saxon on 01245 363 764 or email with any enquiry.
