Dansk Vintage, a unique local business, selling sustainable vintage Danish furniture celebrated a year of success last 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 arrive in Australia.”

Christina 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 furniture, 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.”

Dansk Vintage, which simply means “Danish Vintage” in Danish can be found online at http://www.danskvintage.com.au/.

Our passion is for bohemian style; as a blend of antique, vintage and design furniture and effects. This has inspired us to create a business in Australia, linking our past in Denmark with our present in Australia where we have been based since January 2008.

James was born in Australia, his knowledge and experience in the antique business has been accumulated through diverse pathways over three decades. He has been interested in and collecting antiques since as a young boy his dad introduced him to antiquing on the way to and from weekend rugby games. As a teenager he worked for an antique auction house and several antique shops honing his skills as a restorer.

In 1994, at 22 he went overseas and began a job with an antique export company in Copenhagen, Denmark. This business established a steady and still ongoing export of Danish used furniture and effects around Australia. James held this job for eight years, and over the years did furniture restoration jobs on high end antiques for two exclusive auction houses in Copenhagen. In 2002 James started his own Copenhagen based company Antique Atelier restoring and exporting antiques and vintage furniture. Antique Atelier ran for a number of years and was dissolved when James moved back to Australia.

Christina is a Danish born citizen who holds a master's degree from Copenhagen Business School. She has worked eight years in intellectual property, six years in Copenhagen, then two years in Brisbane which has given her a profound understanding of handling business administration.

Together we form the partnership of dansk vintage established
