Vintage is located in the southern part of souk ha’pishpishim in Jaffa in the area by Fuah (or is it Puah – honestly it’s the most bizaarly named cafe but the place is simply amazing) on Uli Sivan 13.
Eran, the designer who handles the restoration of the pieces, is obsessed not only with the history of Israeli furniture design but with the history of Israeli ceramics as well. Their collection of Israeli ceramics is something you need to see.
The prices are fair. I would recommend doing a walk-through the souk first, however, so you can see what else is out there and can negotiate accordingly. If you are on a tight budget they have unfinished pieces which are in decent condition.
I picked some of my favorite pieces from their website – but this is just the tiniest fraction of what you will find from their store.
I was watching TCM the other day and saw The Tender Trap with Frank Sinatra. The furniture in his apartment in that movie was identical to the type of things they have in this store.
I’m not nuts about the coverings on the chairs, but I’m loving that table. I think I would go for some sort of icey mint and bronze brocade on the chairs to contrast with the ultra moderness of the table.
