If you’re anything like me then you might, at times, be drawn to more unusual pieces. Nothing so quirky that it stares at you, unblinkingly, whenever you enter the room but something that gives you that cheeky nod and a wink when you catch it out of the corner of your eye as you leave the room smiling. That’s what I love about some of these quirky vintage pieces.
Having friends and family around for Christmas? A few things you might need, big and small. All available from Squarepeg Home.
Check out this beautiful Squarepeg dining table. Perfect for that long, lazy afternoon Christmas meal with the family.
How about a place to relax on the verandah after the belly’s been filled. A wonderful Wegner rocking chair could do the trick.
Give me one reason not to get one of these Cloudcatchers. And we can engrave the names of the lucky recipients of this lovely gift on the swing. Check out our Facebook page for a chance to win one of these lovely handcrafted Squarepeg swings.
And the small…
Delightful Helbak Christmas ornaments. Your tree is up right?
Karen Millar handmade ceramics are a truly beautiful gift idea.

…with a mid-century feel
An easy way to get that mid-century feel without buying up big is by choosing one or two iconic pieces that draws attention. Lights are a good option – they are often eye-catching and can really anchor the room. We love these Louis Poulsen PH 4 pendants, but we also have a range of other mid-century lighting options – including one by Arne Jacobsen and a really impressive vintage copper bell light shade! Come in and check them out…

…now is the time to sit easy!
Are you sitting pretty at your dining table?! Are you rested and well fed? Are you enjoying just sitting down eating delicious food, catching up with friends, having a quiet cup of tea? Well, I am guessing you might not be if it’s a hard, unfriendly and uncomfortable chair you are sitting on. You are perhaps desperate to stand up, stretch your back, to get going, to finish the moment. If that is you then we think it’s time you paid us a visit.
We have got loads of great dining chair options - all authentic, original and vintage – yes they do stand the test of time (top marks for workmanship to the Danes!). Different chairs are comfortable for different people – but here are just a few of the ones we have…
Come in and have a seat. We cater to all perfect-chair-hunters out there!

…Some vintage sofas
Ben managed to hunt down a great range of sofas and armchairs on his last furniture finding excursion to Denmark – including pieces designed by Hans Wegner, leather stouby sofas and timber-framed sofas by Ole Wanscher. (I know – how did he squeeze them all in?!)
These are just two of the vintage sofas that arrived in our last shipment… just to wet your moozy-day appetite….
Its a 3-seater sofa designed by Peter Hvidt and Orla Molgaard and it’s classically simple and understated. With original charcoal fabric it’s a really elegant piece.
I think we have a sofa for you to love. And one thing is for certain when you buy a piece from us – its an original. It’s authentic – every single piece of furniture at squarepeg. Don’t you want to fight the fakes? Sit on something real? Come and find it (and fall in love).

Relax. Take it easy. Sit back in style. There must be a few of you out there doing that right now after taking advantage of our Valentine Day sale… there was a lot to love in February – I hope you got some!
If you missed out in the furniture love stakes, then you are still in luck. We have a couple of classic vintage danish pieces just waiting for that perfect spot. A stylish daybed by Hans Wegner, a couple of easy chairs by Arne Norelle, three Hans Wegner easy chairs (model GE 375) and a Stouby sofa.
All classic design pieces. Authentic, vintage danish furniture. It’s the real deal.
(PS Speaking of the real deal – the first three photos in this blog entry were taken by local photography expert Mandy Miller…pretty fab I think…)

Well, with love in the air we think its time to come and find some lovely furniture. Give it to yourself to love. Or to someone you love. Own it because of love. We know you will love it for a lifetime. I think you know it too…

Container day sale!
We have had a busy week unpacking new stock, working out which cushions go with which chairs and which legs go with which dining tables and then restoring and polishing and of course tenderly loving each piece as we finally check over them! And finally! – our September Sunday sale day is here and now…and as usual with squarepeg sales, its been a very very hectic day. Just some shots of the shop floor before the punters arrived at 10am…
With loads of new stock just arrived and getting new pieces back from restoration regularly I think you might always find something new on the floor at squarepeg!
