Barnaby Bardford’s art installation — a 9m tall structure composed of miniature bone china storefronts of shops across London — featured New Vintage as in the display. The piece was exhibited in the Victoria and Albert Museum.
The Sunday Times exhibited a chest of drawers purchased in the Battersea Store. The refurbished chest is a quintessential example of a New Vintage and the Rocky Crystal collaboration. For further work from the Rocky Crystal, head to their instagram.
After a Harper’s Bazaar stylist discovered our shop in Battersea Park Road, our stock was featured in an editorial for the magazine.
New Vintage was featured in Andrew Whittaker's informative book, Second Hand and Vintage London.
"Julie Rumble’s small Battersea shop sells vintage with a twist. The secondhand dressing tables, cupboards and chests of drawer here, all wooden and mostly mid 20th century, have been painted, papered or adorned with decoupage. She also sells a variety of old lampshades, tea sets and itch paintings, alongside bits of new furniture." -- Andrew Whittaker

She operates her business with a no wastage policy, sourcing preloved items and restoring them to their former glory. Julie is committed to running a sustainable, green business with a clear goal: ethically sourced furniture with timeless appeal.
Because of the ethos behind New Vintage, in 2016, Julie was awarded the Green Business of the Year Award.
