Modern Revolution

About us

A unique approach to selling antique and retro items, based in Wantage, Oxfordshire

How it all started...

Modern Revolution is an antiques shop with a difference. After many years of searching high and low for unique items at reasonable prices for our home, we have finally taken the plunge and decided to turn that passion into a fully fledged business. We want to be able to take the hard work out of finding that special piece for you, and as such our store is a carefully cultivated space where you can see what is available and how it can be styled together. All of our chosen items are sourced personally by us, and we only ever buy what we love – you won’t find anything here that we wouldn’t happily display in our own home, and believe us when we say that sometimes it’s a real struggle for us to part with some items and actually put them into the shop!

Whilst the convenience of modern interior design and flat pack furniture certainly has its place in our crazy, fast paced world, we strongly believe that rediscovering, repurposing, and reloving items with a history is the best way forward. Antique items come with a whole world of character, their own story to tell, and can instantly change the mood of a space, when you consider all of this along with the eco friendly benefits of one piece of furniture gracing homes for over 200 years – why would you look anywhere else?

So, pop on down to visit us in the beautiful town of Wantage, Oxfordshire, enjoy a stroll along the historic Ridgeway, watch the world go by as you sip a coffee, and find an item that you simply can’t resist and just have to take home with you – we promise that you will be spoilt for choice! As much as we would love to meet every single one of you, don’t let distance stand in your way, if you would like more information on any of our items including additional photos / dimensions / delivery info, or would just like to have a chat with one of us, then please do not hesitate to contact us – you can find all our details here.

We hope our collection of items brings you as much joy as it does us, and we can’t wait to get those unique finds flying their way to your lovely homes!
