Dr Bombay: Sydney’s new globetrotting vintage store

Great Dane Furniture, purveyors of classic Scandinavian style, have opened Dr Bombay, a vintage store full of unexpected and fantastic finds from India, Morocco, Japan and Argentina. We spent some time exploring the store and found:
Glass buoys perched atop industrial stools and Japanese shipping trunks.
A vintage locker from Japan, originally used to store school children’s shoes.
A herd of brass elephant watering cans.

The pieces from India stand out with their vivid hues and ornamentation.
A rocket-shaped magazine stand is filled with beautifully worn timber mallets.
Some wonderfully kitsch bottles in which to store whiskey.
Dr Bombay: 613A Elizabeth Street, Redfern NSW, (02) 9698 9149. iamdrbombay.com.
