Vintage Inspired Pieces to Commemorate D Day

Posted by Mark Godsell-Fletcher on

Today we commemorate a significant day in our history, D Day.  Today 70 years ago thousands of brave allied troupes landed and lost their lives on the beaches of Normandy.  We Remember Them. As a fitting tribute to this day in 1944, we have found a wonderful selection of vintage inspired interiors.  Although these beautiful pieces look like they have come from a different era they would compliment many different interior styles. Laundry Bags is not something I thought I would be shouting about, that is until I came across these two stylish offerings.  You can't help but love this funky military wheelie design.Military style laundry bag
