Stuff & Stories
Vintage interior design from the former Czechoslovakia

Stuff & Stories is specialist in Czechoslovakian design from the second half of the 20th century.

In the 60’s and 70’s, the former Socialist Republic of Czechoslovakia stands out as a producing country of high quality interior design of elegant simplicity. The style is strikingly modern with a line that is clean and gentle. The furniture is both functional and robust.

With their designs, famous interior designers such as Jindrich Halabala, Jiri Jiroutek or Miroslav Navratil, define the very aesthetics of a lifestyle that in their view befits the ideals of socialist modernity. Many of these designers work for the famous furniture factory Interiér Praha.

The vintage furniture of Stuff & Stories is well loved. An iconic design is the U-450, a series of sideboards by Jiri Jiroutek. Characteristic element in this design are the bright colors of the drawers in a clean enclosure of oak veneer. Luckily, Czechoslovakian design is made to withstand the test of time. That does not mean that the furniture is invincible. Stuff & Stories restores each item with the greatest care and is committed to preserve the original character of the design.
