Shopping in Prague: Communist era Czech vintage treasures

attachment-525d855ce4b0efb7186f632b

Today, we have a tip for lovers of all things vintage. When we travel we always search for unique local things to bring home. Although we can spend hours antique hunting when we travel, back home we used to prefer young designers. But that’s changing. For a long time the design quality of Communist-era Czechoslovak design objects was ignored by almost everyone. These pieces were basically seen as nothing to write home about. However, the popular haunts for vintage object lovers like Noveretro, Nanovo, Moare/Retroobjects and Tuzeks - all started out of a love for vintage things - have slowly made pointed our attention to design gems that are also becoming very popular on the world market.

In the stores’ collections, you can discover all kinds of treasures: from cool industrial lamps to funky coasters, elegant dining chairs, vintage radios or a cool Prim watch our fathers used to wear. And while our parents may be laughing at us, shaking their heads and saying that they use to have exactly the same lamp, hairdryer, armchair, etc., we simply love these flashbacks of childhood and furnish our home with them voluntarily.

The stocks are constantly changing, so if you're interested in a bit of old Czechoslovak nostalgia, visit the online shops. If you are in Prague or in Brno, you can also visit them in person (Nanovo and Moare open by appointment only, Tuzeks seats here and Novoretro here (Brno)).

A little peek at how you can use these vintage pieces at home:
