It is said that if you wait long enough, your old clothes become fashionable again. And that is exactly what seems to be occurring to particular items of furniture, with sideboards, sofas and dining tables which were hugely popular in the 1960s and 1970s staging a revival.

They include original vintage furniture, which would have been bought for hundreds of pounds back in the day and can now fetch thousands of pounds if they come with the right designer names, according to experts.

'If you are trying to sell such a piece, search for labels as anything made by a Danish or Italian designer could go for #8,000 upwards,' advises Stacey Sibley of interior designers Alexander James.

She explained how classic pieces by Ercol or G-Plan proved especially common in the 1960s and 1970s. Discover further on designer furniture website by visiting our splendid essay.

At exactly the same time, original leather modular sofas which are in good condition can fetch almost #5,000, while initial extending dining tables may also set you back thousands.

Original sideboards that are rectangular shape and include angular legs are back in fashion, with the most sought-after distinguished by a stamp or plaque by the manufacturer somewhere on the furniture - usually on the back, on the inside of the drawer, or underneath the top drawer. Ms Sibley said: 'We can all think back to viewing the G plan cabinet in our parents' or grandparents' couch in the 70s, sat on a lovely orange and brown patterned rug, with a lava lamp on top of it. 'Its sleek rectangle shape with angular legs in a walnut wood that would often be hiding a cocktail bar within a cupboard door. What we did not understand was that these pieces are coming back into fashion and value quite a lot of money.'

Bidding wars can often break out on sites like ebay for the first pieces of vintage furniture. Everywhere you look there are copies of these designed cabinets but where it's at is possessing an original, so be prepared for a bidding war that may set you back thousands,' she said. In case you wish to get more about worth reading, there are many on-line databases you could investigate. And she went on to advise: 'It might be worth seeing if your granny still needs to continue to her'

It's not just about these designer names, even if you own a more basic piece. Ms Sibley suggested that it is still possible to earn money in the present climate. These could include sideboards and cabinets but also that old dining room furniture which may have once looked dated but is now the height of cool. 'Companies like The Old Cinema sell a good deal of vintage pieces, even recycled ones, so if you're good at painting you can spruce up an old piece to make a few added pounds,' she explained. GUIDE TO G-PLAN AND ERCOL

Labels like G-Plan and Ercol can be extremely important in establishing the piece of furniture as genuine.

One of the labels employed by G-Plan before the mid 1960s was a golden embossed stamp. Identify additional information on our affiliated web page - Click here: get vintage furniture.

G-Plan furniture was created by Smithers, with its Danish sideboard range introduced in the 1960s.

Ercol furniture was designed by Lucian Ercolani, who built his first factory in 1920 in High Wycombe.


The prevalence of such pieces seems to be because of their retro modern style, with sideboards made of cherry or walnut wood giving 'warmth' into a room and being particularly sought after. The cabinets also provide a great storage solution and can be used as TV cabinets with cut outs for the wiring in the back. More expensive versions now being marketed through Smithers of Stamford - a converted cinema showroom for retro furniture and homewares.
