About Us

Design Vintage was founded in 2012 by interiors addict Lisa Brass.
From a tiny start-up shop in Brighton it has grown to become a much loved online store with a unique Lifestyle Showroom + Cafe. 

I've been pretty much obsessed with interiors for as long as I can remember, with a background in hospitality, property design, building and renovating as well as Interior Design.

Design Vintage started life as a small store on the outskirts of Brighton offering vintage furniture pieces alongside a scattering of homewares. The shop was off the beaten track and with only a homemade website it was definitely a gamble! Thankfully I have had the support of so many lovely customers from day one as well as some amazing press coverage and a reputation for customer service which has allowed the company to grow and far exceed anything I had imagined it could be.

I am now lucky enough to have a small team of equally dedicated and wonderfully passionate people who have joined this exciting adventure!

A move in 2015 bought us to our beautiful Lifestyle Store in a converted Sussex Barn just outside Chichester, West Sussex. From here we have developed a Cafe as well as continuing to grow our collection of both vintage and modern pieces.

My personal style has always been heavily influenced by pared back Scandinavian Design which sits perfectly alongside Vintage furniture and antiquities. Embracing neutral tones, I add character, texture and soul so no space is ever stark or cold. A home should feel lived in and welcoming as well as being a thing of beauty, and the wabi sabi culture we have adopted allows us to carry this ethos through our entire collection.

Our Collection

We hold the firm belief that good design should be both considered and creative. Products with character bring life into our spaces. Wherever possible we prefer products that are handmade rather than mass produced, and look for a story in our vintage pieces.
