Australian Vintage Fans Go Danish With Dansk Vintage Many rare and collectable items from cult Danish designers, including Hans Wegnar, Boerge Mogensen and Grete Jalk, have made their way across the globe to Dansk Vintage.

News-Antique.com - Oct 15,2012 - Dansk Vintage, a unique local business, selling sustainable vintage Danish furniture will celebrate a year of success next month.
The Brisbane-based company has used a handpicked team of tasteful Danish suppliers to meet a niche Australian market demand for selective, high quality vintage pieces from the Nordic nation.
The success of the business is so prolific that current stock shipments are being snapped up before they reach Australian shores.
Christina Meagher one half of Dansk Vintage’s husband-and-wife team said buyers on the Dansk Vintage online furniture store have to get in quick.
“Lately we are finding that by the time items arrive in Australia they are often already sold,” Ms Meagher said.
“Through our online boutique buyers have the opportunity to view and reserve our beautiful vintage furniture pieces before they leave Denmark.”
Meagher said herself and husband James moved Dansk Vintage into the retail sphere in September 2011 when they sensed that the timeless appeal of Danish furniture was a sought after commodity in Australia.
“I think that people are really interested in Danish Furniture because of the thoughtful design and craftsmanship that goes into each piece,” Ms Meagher said.
“We are finding that the Australian market is not just interested in the superb quality of vintage Danish vintage, they also love to hear the wonderful stories and history of the pieces and their designs.”
Meagher said the true beauty of Danish Furniture lies in the classic clean design feel, which gives the pieces more than one lifetime of longevity.
“People are sometimes surprised that the items they buy have already lived one lifetime with somebody else, because they appear so modern and fashionable,” she said.
“I think people love the fact they are partaking in sustainable living too, by purchasing a vintage piece they are recycling and giving that item a new life, which is a great feeling.”
