At first glance, the pieces of furniture in the Gidloof Originals collection may appear to be revitalized vintage finds. That is only natural since the Gidlööf shop, which was founded in 2011 by architect Guim Costa and her partner Sofia Gidlööf in Barcelona, mainly sells designs from the 40s, 50s and 60s. Surrounded by such vintage creations would naturally influence the Gidloof Originals collection.

Nevertheless, upon closer inspection, the wooden frames featured in the Gidloof Originals collection are subtly eccentric. Whether it involves a pair of peg-like front legs or an industrial-looking stand, there are modern touches that elevate the retro spirit to contemporary times. The Gidloof Originals collection mainly uses natural materials including chestnut wood, black iron, leather, cotton and brass for a refreshing aesthetic.
