Online vintage store Proper Job Shop specialises in 20th century furniture with a Scandinavian twist, stocking unique second-hand pieces individually sourced by London-based owners Alice Clarkson and James Stickley (who are both designers in their own right). Each item is photographed for the site along with a description of its origin and an honest assessment of the level of wear & tear, so the shopping experience feels personalised - as if curated especially for you.

Alice and James are both firm fans of classic design: "We believe that buying second-hand, vintage pieces is not only buying a piece of history but also is a more sustainable and ecological way to kit out your home."
