A Vintage corner of a family business in Ash Vale has been decorated to celebrate the shop bringing in items that hark back to the early days of it's existence.
Vale Furnishers has begun stocking a G Plan Vintage range of furniture which is similar to that which the grandparents of managing director Mark Chandler sold when they first opened the shop in 1960.
The Fifties and Sixites inspired ranges have items named after the year in which the originals were created.
One armchair in the range is based on the 'World's Most Comfortable Chair' that featured in the 1967 James Bond film You Only Live Twice, sat on by villain Blofeld with his white cat.
"G Plan were one of the first manufacturers that my grandparents stocked when they opened Vale Furnishers in 1960," said Mr Chandler. "It is exciting to now be able to offer the new G Plan Vintage range which is inspired by the original pieces my family sold."
An area of the ground floor has been dedicated to pieces that share vintage influences to create a more dramatic visual effect for customers.
