Vintage reproduction home decor sites make us happy. Even though we do like the treasure hunt of finding an intact set of, say, atomic '50s china plates, we don't always have the time to go through the searching process. And there have been too many times we've found said plates only to find a bunch of cracks in the glaze. So when time (and patience) is in short supply, call upon these fab vintage reproduction home decor sites for your retro fix.

vintage cream and sugar set
The Site: Nest

This store just exudes vintage charm. From aprons to china, expect the very best in 1930s style home goods.
Our pick: Jadeite green and sunny yellow pressed glass cream and sugar set, $15 via their Etsy shop.
retro mermaid bath sign
The Site: Jack and Friends

Need a set of laundry detergent boxes that look as if they belonged in your great-grandma's house? Then call on Jack and Friends. This site is filled with antique-inspired conversation pieces that'll add extra character to even the most modern homes.
Our pick: Retro Mermaid Bath Tin Sign, $9 for 3, from Jack And Friends.
vintage-inspired light fixture
The Site: Schoolhouse Electric

We seriously became envious looking through the vintage-inspired offerings at Schoolhouse Electric. Old-fashioned lighting fixtures are the specialty at this shop, which is a favorite among interior designers looking to add a "lived-in look" to their projects. Now if only we were a little handier with installing electrical elements....
Our pick: MIT Cage pendant fixture, $129 from Schoolhouse Electric.
antique chairs
The Site: Soft Surroundings

Take heart, this site is not for those of us on stiff budgets. (Sigh.) But their findings are so beautiful and luxurious that we couldn't resist. Take, for example, these 19th Century chairs. They're like roses, alluring from afar but when you reach to pluck them, they will bleed you dry with neither mercy nor temperance. (Okay, maybe that metaphor got out of hand.)
Our pick: Dourgne Bergere antique chairs, $698.95, from Soft Surroundings.
vintage reproduction napkins
The Site: Macy's

Say what, Macy's? Yes, it's true: The traditional department store has plenty of vintage reproduction brands for the home. Our favorite is the Vera Neumann line, which consists of table linens and home decor items inspired by a midcentury design icon.
Our pick: Vera Rose Bouquet, $15 for a set of 4 napkins, from Macy's.

 

fiesta dinnerware and bakeware
The Site: Homer Laughlin

Fiesta brand dishware was a mainstay in kitchens between the '30s and '60s. The high-quality plates, cups and platters came in nearly every color of the rainbow. (And the colors, though vibrant, never faded.) Now you can start your own collection thanks to Homer Laughlin, which has reissued the best colors in limited edition through stores like Kohl's and Macy's.
Our pick: Fiesta Dinnerware, visit Homer Laughlin for store info.
vintage inspired patio furniture
The Site: Torrans Manufacturing Company

Longing for an adorable patio set that looks as if it came from the set of "I Love Lucy"? Then you're in luck: The Torrans Manufacturing Company has been releasing well-crafted versions of classic patio sets to retail stores for years now. The shellback chairs are the best, but definitely check out the picnic and drink coolers, too. 
Our pick: Thunderbird Double Glider, visit Torrans Manufacturing Company for retail shops.
vintage inspired cake pedestal
The Site: Rosanna

Girly is golden at Rosanna, which specializes in candy-colored decorative serving pieces. Great for frequent entertainers ... or those of us who would like to give off the impression of domestic goddess-ness.
Our pick: Small White Pedestal, $45, from Rosanna.
vintage inspired turntable
The Site: Crosley

For record collectors (and those who love them), a Crosley player is a must. Why? Because most old record players are just that: Old. And hard to care for. But a Crosley will deliver great sound and design in an easy-to-care-for package. Even better, many models have iPod jacks.
Our pick: Lancaster, $170, from Crosley.
vintage inspired tiki flask
The Site: Retro Planet

From vintage reproduction diner booths to glassware, Retro Planet is a one-stop-shop for retro entertaining. We like it for vintage-inspired Tiki bar supplies, but it's also a must-see for anyone planning a party. Because honestly, nothing says "party" like Tiki bar stuff.
Our pick: Tiki Flask, $30, from Retro Planet

    Thank you for this, it's exactly what I was looking for. Just purchased this iconic barcelona chair replica at http://coco-interiors.co.uk/barcelona-chair, and I'm now looking for some great vintage reproduction decorations.
