Clavel 20th Century Design – Thornbury

Tagged: , , , , , , , , , , ,

What a treat to come upon this place when looking for a brunch place. From the outside I thought it was a cafe but could see eclectic items on the side and out the front so thought I better explore. So happy I did.

Clavel is located opposite the well-known Carwyn Cellars and is a fairly large-sized warehouse jam-packed with mostly furniture – lots of chairs (and I mean lots). Despite the funky designs and retro look, Clavel isn’t as expensive as say 20th Century Scandinavia in Brunswick East. So visit with the knowledge that you may pick up something special at a reasonable price.

There were some lovely succulents and cactus for sale that could easily be put into a pot that are on the shelves and make something special for the front door or kitchen window.

Of course, you then come across an item like this above which I think is either something a dentist uses or perhaps in radiologist. Whatever it is – it’s for sale. If you’re into contemporary pieces, you’ll also come across some very nice 70’s quality settings.

What will you find here?

  • Retro and vintage furniture
  • Retro and vintage homewares
  • Chairs, chairs and more chairs
  • Sideboards and tables
  • Kitchy little things that make you smile
