About Us

Established in 1991, the bitch is back quickly grew to become both a style icon and a favourite of all vintage connoisseurs in Melbourne. Having moved on from our original St Kilda premises, we have retained the same focus on furniture as art, which saw us become so successful within the community. What initially started as a passion for vintage and retro furniture has gradually grown in to a wealth of experience, accumulated over 28 years, in locating and sourcing the highest quality vintage pieces.

Our name ‘the bitch is back’ refers to a piece of furniture that may have once fallen out of favour, but has sinceseen a return to vogue. We pride ourselves on our discerning eye and ability to identify these articles, which quickly become our customers treasured possessions.

Our eye for the excellent ranges from quality mid-twentieth century European furnishings all the way through to the very best of Australian made custom furniture. Our wide range ensures that everybody, from the seasoned interior designer to the young collector looking for that first vintage piece, will find something within our unique collection that quickens their pulse.

This focus on high-quality retro and vintage furniture is supplemented by an obsession with mid-century influenced accessories such as lighting, rugs, soft furnishings and original artwork. All items stocked at the bitch is back are either genuine vintage pieces, or contemporary designs that evoke the very best of retro styling.

At the bitch is back we consider furniture as art. This sees you receive furniture that is not only functional, but also beautiful and filled with soul and story.
