Lost and Found - Contemporary Nostalgia

What makes an object worth saving? Is it sentimentality or beauty? Perhaps it's the continued functionality of the object or the cost to replace it.

Of course, there's no easy answer, but it is a question posed by Becky Oldfield, the creative force behind Lost and Found, who believes that we should reconsider the value we place on objects, reappraise and find new uses for them.

To this end, she has produced some really engaging and quirky pieces for the home that are informed by and created from vintage objects with a particularly British slant. Witness the deck chairs made with old Union Flags and the bus destination light boxes used as wall hangings.

Heritage objects put in a new context and, as a consequence, given a new lease of life. A bit like when old Tweedy visits the seaside.
