Just Be Retro was started in 2014 out of a love of Mid-Century design.Stepping back 30 years. In 1984 I had just completed a BA in design and set up my first work shop in Shropshire developing uses for green timber and producing one-off pieces of furniture. However, I needed to earn a living too so I began to restore for local dealers but in those days it was predominantly Victorian and Georgian Furniture.
A few years later I relocated to the the Jewellery Quarter in Birmingham making furniture for both the commercial and domestic market.
I always had fond memories of the early days of restoring and decided I wanted to do more but this time my passion was re-kindled by Mid-Century design.We now sell throughout the UK and Europe.
