Since opening their vintage doors to the public in May 2010, owners John Livadas and Angela Santas continue to house a seriously extensive range of vintage retro furniture. For these retro-loving folk, who both possess a sustained passion for hunting and gathering collectables from around Australia, it’s all about obsession.


Model No. 143 is filled with retro furniture and objects that date back to the Australian mid-century vintage and Industrial design eras. Anything and everything from the ‘50s to the ‘80s dominates the Preston space, which rests between The Raccoon Club and Boundary Espresso. How convenient, right?


With stock updated weekly with new-fangled retro pieces they’ve recently unearthed, the Model No. 143 team source much of their wares from preferred designers Fler, Tessa, Danish Deluxe, TH Brown, Parker and many more.


Check the website for a comprehensive visual take on what’s in stock at this fine northside establishment. See what just sold, what’s for sale and read the owners blog to garner their views on the current state of play in the retro game. Free delivery within a five-kilometre radius, reasonable rates, rare stock, gift vouchers, friendly and informative staff clearly add to the deal, making this the ideal weekend hangout.
