As we enter a new year, we’re faced with 12 fresh months of birthdays, accomplishments and anniversaries.
While we never turn down a reason to get out, many of these will be celebrated at home, which got us thinking about updating our tableware. After all, dining with friends and family (or alone) is always better when you have something pretty to look at.
It’s not always easy to find what you want though. So to help out, we’re bringing you a selection of our favourite vintage homewares accounts where you can find just the thing to serve up at your next dinner party. It's a good excuse to find something unique, and keep a beautiful object out of landfill. Happy vintage hunting!
Marie Pontefract sources her favourite pieces from the Malvern flea market, junk shops and local antiques markets across Surrey and Kent. So the hard work to find affordable and unique pieces, like thesemid-century checked serving plates, has been done for you.

Depression glass is in (really it never left), so chances are your grandma is happy you’re pining over her 1920s brightly coloured moulded glassware.
Now, of course, if you don’t have a historically fashionable grandma, you’ll have to look slightly further afield. Based in New York City, Rosemary Home is one of our favourite places to score these delicate beauties. Some favourites from the mix include this set of Venetian octagonal glasses and this faceted decanter set in lemon yellow. We’re totally here for the multicoloured madness, and so is your home.

Always in pursuit of the perfect salad server, to-die-for vases and unique tableware, Dervla O’Shea founded Our Hse to share her love of interior styling. O’Shea knows her collection of mid-century modern, second-hand wares is a valuable commodity, which is why she only makes her items available in limited drops, releasing five to seven pieces at a time.

Wanting to up your game with a French provincial tablescape? Then this alcohol decanter will be a perfect centrepiece. Warehouse vibes?
