Arkvintage Vintage, Urban, Restored furniture and accessories

THE STORY SO FAR….

Now established for over 10 years, Ark vintage took over the the old Alders Department store in Camberley in 2011 to provide over 9000 square feet of floor space to show our massive and evolving range of vintage, shabby chic, retro and urban/industrial style furniture and accessories.

With a massive range of artisan crafted dining tables and furniture always in stock or available to order together with a large and eclectic mix of rescued and carefully revived antiques, up-cycled furniture, shabby chic painted and industrial finds we are the leading supplier of vintage style in the South. Whether you are looking for inspiration, or something specific we can help.

In the past we have helped individuals and businesses including The White Company, Jack Wills, and River Island to name but a few.  Our Amish Barn Stars are now more popular than ever having been used to stylise a recent catalogue for The White Company.

We love the idea of using pre-loved vintage and antique furniture as unique treasures in the home. They bring character, individuality and style by the old, and slightly dented, bucketful.
