Our Passion Extends To All Things Furniture

Born from an appreciation for all things retro, the bitch is back is Melbourne’s premier stockist of vintage and retro home furnishings. Not only do we provide stunning vintage furnishings, we also offer a hire service, and restoration service

To us, vintage furniture isn’t just about pieces from a certain time period, it’s also about seeking out the very highest quality and most visually aesthetic designs. Whether you’re after a stunning sofa to style your loungeroom, or some retro bar stools to inject personality into your home, we specialise in sourcing and acquiring those must-have furnishings.

Our focus is on pieces that combine an aesthetic wow-factor with quality-ensuring that we provide pieces that are at once visually stunning and long-lasting. Although this focus on retro helped establish the bitch is back as an iconic Melbourne vintage stockist, our passion extends to all things furniture.

Reupholstery, Restoration and Hire

As well as offering a large collection of vintage furnishings for sale, weprovide a hire service for the film and television industries. Our items have been used for many years in film and television productions, and we offer a service that caters specifically to the demands of your production. Furthermore, we appreciate the disappointment that comes with finding the perfect piece in a not so perfect condition. Our restoration and reupholstering will restore your treasured furniture to its former glory.

Our range of other items includes jewellery, homewares, decorative items and cushions, all designed with a retro flavour.

At the bitch is back we are also actively involved in the purchase of estates of vintage furniture, lighting, smalls and collectibles. Please do not hesitate to contact us if you believe you have an item that would be of interest.
