Kasbah Mod’s rejuvenated vintage typewriters are modified bits of modernity in analog bodies – taking vintage to the next level with high-end refurbishments of the coolest writing tools this side of a quill and ink pot. Kasbah Mod – also known as Kasbah Moderne – takes typewriters (complete with original 1873 typewriter technology), spiffs them up to pristine working condition, and retrofits them to suit any need – with custom paint jobs, 24-karat gold plating, artist-inspired editions – or even custom ink. Launched in 2010 by Chase Gilbert, these couture-quality machines allow lovers of high design to disconnect from the digital world one beautiful art object at a time.
Your home decor shouldn’t look like it was ordered entirely by catalog. Create memorable rooms with accessories and art that have warmth, character — and a story to tell. Here you’ll find an array of vintage decor items (many of which make great gifts) that do just that, including antiqued lanterns, cracked wood mirrors, original typewriters, rugby balls, and framed illustrations of Jane Arden’s paper dolls from the 1930s and 1940s.
A beautiful office both inspires and rewards hard work, and these vintage (and vintage-inspired) items — from authentic midcentury typewriters to Holly Hunt’s Industrial Era-reminiscent La Lampe Gras lighting collection — will lend your workspace a stylishly stately tenor that reflects the past. Steel trays, ceramic jars, and framed maps complete this classic picture.
To assemble this selection of home accents, we took our inspiration from the past. From rustic dishware to seagrass baskets, to authentic vintage typewriters and antique sewing machines, each piece comes from (or evokes) a time when craftsmanship was king and details truly mattered. Mix and match a few pieces for an artful, collected-over-time look.
