Thrifting is back in season, and there are tons of reasons to choose second-hand furniture over newly manufactured pieces. In addition to greatly reducing your carbon footprint, many second-hand furniture items are restored antique pieces that are not only built with superior vintage craftsmanship, but also come with rich histories. 

Falling in love with second-hand furniture is a process of discovery. But it’s easy to get overwhelmed by the plethora of choices, especially if you’re trying to stick to a specific interior design theme. We’re lending you a hand by sorting the 7 second-hand furniture shops we’ve picked out into 5 specific themes – modern, Scandinavian vintage, Victorian & Edwardian, Chinese antique, and retro.

Modern

While it’s more common to find antiques or vintage items at second-hand furniture shops, Second Look prides itself on its extensive collection of modern furniture. They characterise their collection as “furniture that evokes elegance”. By collecting, inspecting, and reselling ex-rental furniture, Second Look offers homeowners a cheaper and more environmentally friendly alternative to purchasing furniture brand new. 

Primarily sourced from large companies and expatriates, the huge range of furniture at Second Look comprises everything from dining sets to standalone stools. You can even find items that are typically more difficult to acquire second-hand, such as baby cots and bean bags.

Second Look is able to deliver all items from their existing collection within 2-3 days with a delivery fee starting from $50. If you aren’t satisfied with what you bought, you also have the option of exchanging your item or design within 14 days from the date of purchase.

Noden is home to a carefully curated selection of original vintage Scandi furniture from the 1940s to the 1970s collected from across Scandinavia. The bulk of their stock consists of authentic vintage Mid-Century and Scandinavian Modern furniture designs, with an abundance of Danish Modern classics. 

Sourced from established craftsmen and designers, each piece in Noden’s collection has its own story and journey, and no two pieces are alike. Most of the vintage furniture they carry have undergone restoration works under the hands of skilled craftsmen, but Noden is careful to maintain the authenticity of all their pieces.

As such, prices of these items skew towards the higher end. 

Noden’s website has a list of their in-store stock, along with clear pictures and detailed descriptions of the origins of every piece of furniture. With beautiful items and long histories, it’s not surprising that Scandi lovers are quick to clear Noden’s vintage furniture finds.
