The Vintage Retro Team, The Warehouse and What we do.

Meet the Vintage Retro team, the warehouse and what we do.

We’re calling this section Meet the Team, it’s about us as individuals, as well as what we collectively bring together here at Vintage Retro and Pure Imagination Ltd. Each of us brings skills, knowledge, our tastes, but overall our passion.

It’s taken a few years to find the right people with the right skills, but now we have a small group of enthusiastic people who we’re proud to call THE TEAM!

After over 20 years as a chartered surveyor and auctioneer running a local north-east auction rooms Andrew Tavroges decided  it was time for a change . He had collected modern studio glass for a few years and went off to Sweden and toured the glass works, returning a year later to buy some  Scandinavian glass and decorative items. Pure Imagination Ltd was formed a year or two later and slowly moved into Danish Mid-Century furniture as well. Since then the business has grown to cover British and French pieces and also some varied pieces from previous eras.

Johnathan is the one in the team full of Mid Century knowledge, passion for quality and design and an ability to source great furniture for the company and customers. Les is the time served cabinet maker, years of experience in restoration of antique furniture, his patience and eye for detail always make for a professional job. Tracey is the upholsterer, she will get rid of the nasty old upholstery and bring the furniture back to life in any suitable fabric that you choose.
