Retro Pakhuis was established in Netherlands in 2019, however earlier, since 2015 it operated as a part of Sklad Design, its sister company in Poland. Our goal was to introduce the best of the Dutch design to the wide public, first in Poland, then in other European countries, and finally in the USA, Japan, Australia and South Korea. Our furniture has reached all parts of the world.
We have organised two major expositions of Dutch design in Poland. In 2015 “The seating Dutchman” show in Warsaw was the first ever presentation of the Dutch design to the Polish public. “100 years of De Stijl revolution – Dutch design from functionalism to postmodernism” in Gdynia in 2017 was the recalling of the role of Gerrit Rietveld and the De Stijl in post-war Dutch design.
We have cooperated with the Polish edition of Elle Decoration magazine where we had published the series of articles about the best Dutch designers from Gerrit Rietveld to Wim Wenders.
In Netherlands, we have opened just recently our first Showroom in Leusden and now we are sending our furniture all over the world. Here you can find beautiful 40’s, 50’s and 60’s vintage furniture, lamps and accessories. Originals only, that are more and more difficult to find! Handmade or produced in short series, each item is carefully restored in our professional workshops. In the process of restoration we use only environment friendly products , natural and with no dangerous and poisonous components.
In our collection you will find the items of collectors value that at the same time fit very well in the contemporary interiors and style. And above all, you definitely will not find any replicas!
