This week seems determined to convince us that summer is definitively, unequivocally over – pretty much before it has even begun. The days are shorter, the sky is darker and an umbrella has become a necessary daily accessory. But on the brighter side of things, it’s almost the end of the month and for lots of people, that means payday! If you have the time (and the waterproof trousers) to scour the markets and car boot sales this weekend, then lucky you. But if not, we’ve done the legwork for you and rounded up the best vintage furniture and accessories for sale across the Internet for less than £100. Don’t hang around, they’re all one of a kind and we think they’ll be snapped up quickly. Happy bargain hunting from your sofa!
Blue bowl by Søholm Stentøj from Chase & Sorensen
We absolutely love the beautiful deep blue colour of this fruit bowl and faded tan edging around the rim and raised details. It’s just calling out to us to stick some lemons in it and watch the colours pop!

Vintage 1960s Italian Chrome Style Pear Ice Bucket from Nannadobbie
Anyone who’s anyone knows that golden pineapple ice buckets from the 1970s are the hottest ticket around right now. However, with that caché comes the inevitable price tag so we’re looking ahead to the next fruit à la mode and we’ve decided it’s going to be the humble pear. This lovely vintage 1960s ice bucket fits the description!

Harp-shaped Mid Century Danish Teak Mirror from Danish Homestore
The mismatched curves on this sculptural teak mirror are absolutely lovely on the eye. This excellent piece would make a great first addition to a fledgling mid century collection.

Vintage 1950s Danish Folding Chair from Danish Collectables
These beauties were rescued en masse from the Hotel Horsens in Denmark. Their simple and practical design is a testament to Danish quality. We’d pick up a few for when those unexpected guests turn up or to pull outside when the sun eventually shows its face again.

Brass Dressing Mirror from Marden
This lovely brass dressing mirror would transform even a lowly table or desk into a veritable dressing table. We love the simple and elegant design and the subtle gold finish just really nails it.

Vintage Danish Footstool from Danish Homestore
Don’t even think about resting your muddy boots on this beauty. A white footstool might not be the most practical, but it certainly screams sophistication and looks stunning against the splayed teak legs.

Pair of 1970s West German plant pots from Chase & Sorensen

Inger Persson Stoneware Pot from 1934 Smalls
