Just like many folk around Melbourne, we also have a passion for vintage retro furniture.
We love collecting - whether it's hunting down that special piece or searching for that perfect object. Or, just for the sake of wanting!
In fact, our love of collecting all things retro rapidly became an obsession and so, Model No. 143 was born, opening its doors in May 2010 in Preston, Melbourne.
Model No. 143 is full of retro furniture & objects - an eclectic mix of Australian Mid Century, Vintage & Industrial design. Everything from the 50's right thru to the 80's!
Our store is small, warm & inviting and full of treasures that take you back. How often do we hear 'my mum had that!'
Melbourne was once a large producer of what we now call vintage retro furniture and we like to think that our store reflects this.
Our store is constantly changing, we update our stock weekly with fresh new pieces. We're always on the hunt for our favourite designers - Fler, Tessa, Danish Deluxe, TH Brown, Parker & more..
This is not to say that this is all we have. Our stock ranges from objects such as small vintage coasters to larger retro pieces such as sprawling wall units. So if you're interested in a bit of nostalgia and for the warmth and comfort of the past, pop by and pay us a visit.
We are constantly surprised how regularly our customers travel, from all over Melbourne, to view our most recent finds. Our website shows only a glimpse of what is available in store, so we highly recommend you come in to see our whole range.
We offer free delivery within a 5km radius (or a little more..) and reasonable rates beyond.
Gift vouchers are also available in store, should you want to share us with family and friends!
We look forward to seeing you soon,
John & Angela
