FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Are all the furniture pieces at Noden vintage and how old are they?
Yes. All our hand picked one off vintage Scandinavian furniture pieces at Noden are guaranteed 100% authentic. We specialize in original vintage Mid-Century and Scandinavian Modern design, in particular Danish Modern classics from the 1940s - 1970s, so most of the pieces you find at Noden were manufactured between the 1940s - 1970s.
We also stock a carefully selected range of new home decor and design goods.
Are all of the vintage furniture pieces at Noden restored?
Most of our vintage items are fully restored, which is why most of the pieces you find at Noden are presented in an amazing condition, with some looking as good as new. Vintage pieces that are in very good to excellent original condition are sold "as is" but we also provide restoration and upholstery services upon request for our pieces only.
What does "Vintage" really mean?
The term "Vintage" has multiple meanings and ways it is used today, which often leads to confusion. Here at Noden, "Vintage" is a term we use very clearly and carefully to describe items over 50 years old, but less than 100, and is also used to date something that was produced within a particular period. If a particular item is described as "Vintage Hans Wegner chair, Denmark - 1960s...", that means it was produced during the 1960s and is at least 50 years old.
Due to the fact that many iconic designs from the 1930s - 1950s are still in continuous production, we describe some 1980s production pieces as "Vintage". Furniture pieces over 35 years old at Noden are described as vintage. We never use the word "Vintage" loosely and we endeavour to be as clear and accurate as possible with our photos and description of every piece at Noden.
What does "Antique" mean?
"Antique" is a term used to describe something manufactured at least 100 years ago.
How do I know which vintage furniture items are still available in-store from the website?
Any item that is not described or listed as "Sold" or "On hold" on the product title is still available in-store. We update our website as soon as we can once an item is sold.
Is every piece of vintage furniture listed online?
We try to list as many as possible but we have more in-store at all times.
Why is Noden's vintage furniture not available online?
Visible age related wear and tear is expected with vintage items including fully restored pieces. We highly recommend dropping by our showroom to have an actual look and feel of the vintage items you are interested in. From there, we will take you through the price, but more importantly, the history and value of each piece.
If I see something that is no longer available, is Noden able to help source for the same piece?
We can definitely help source for iconic designer pieces from Hans Wegner, Finn Juhl, Børge Mogensen, Kai Kristiansen etc Lesser known pieces are harder to find at times but we will do our best to source a similar piece for you, and if we're lucky, we will find the same piece. Drop by our shop and have a chat with us, we will take you through the process and terms of custom sourcing.
If I own a cafe or have a new home that I would like furnished with original Danish design, is Noden able to offer custom sourcing and styling services?
Definitely. We help source for both private and commercial clients locally and internationally so whether you are a cafe/restaurant owner, architect designing a new home or space, or a new homeowner and would like us to custom source specific Danish design items for you, drop by our shop to have a chat with us.
Does Noden send photos of incoming vintage pieces?
We used to, but as of June 2017, due to an overwhelming amount of inquiries, all incoming pieces from new shipments will only be available on a first come first serve basis for walk in customers as a priority once they are ready on the shop floor. Photos taken by us will usually only be updated onto the website 1-2 weeks later for all new shipments. We highly recommend visiting our showroom the first weekend of each new shipment. Please subscribe to our newsletter to stay up to date with new arrivals notifications etc. See below.
Does Noden customise furniture?
No. We do not customise or copy any original design. We are however, able to help you source for highly affordable to highly collectible original vintage Scandinavian design with our custom sourcing services.

We only take in original vintage Scandinavian or Mid-century furniture pieces on a case by case basis. Unfortunately, we do not buy or take in "REPLICA" furniture pieces or normal used (pre-loved) furniture.
