Thrifty Thursday: Remixologie


Remixologie
address : 5701 Burnet Road, Austin, TX 78756
hours :  Sunday: 12pm - 5pm | Tuesday - Saturday: 11pm - 6pm | Closed Mondays



Andy and I stopped by Remixologie when we first moved to Austin and pretty much just drooled all over everything in the store.  So when I got the chance to meet Dini and Amy, the owners of the shop, I jumped at the chance to pick their brains and take photos of their gorgeous space.  Remixologie specializes in Mid-Century Modern furniture and home decor.  They do their own refurbishing (Amy was actually in the back working on a piece when I walked in the other day!), and the reupholstery is either done in-house or by a local reupholsterer (reupholsterist?).  Their inventory is heavily curated and the condition is just immaculate.  

Photo time!!!
Aside from vintage, Remixologie also carries some new inventory from local artists as well as indie makers across the country.  These planters are Austin made!
The whole space is like walking into a time capsule...or my dream house.  The architecture really sets the mood of the space and really helps to accentuate each piece of furniture.
Check out the most perfect chair ever made.  How gorgeous is this?!  I'm really picky about reupholstered vintage furniture.  People love using fabric that's bright teal and red with giant boomerangs and starbursts, which is just not my bag.  I prefer more simplistic fabric, similar to what would've been used at the time.  Fabric should bring out the personality of the furniture's design.  Remixologie does this so well!   



In the back of the shop, you'll find a small area just for kids stuff.  It's a mixture of new and old, all mid-century themed.  With all the hokey kids furnishing and decor out there, Dini and Amy have chosen some wonderfully modern pieces to incorporate in a little one's space.
How cute is that lil Dracula?!  He's got a storybook to go with him.  So sweet.
Remixologie also carries a gorgeous selection of jewelry by indie artists.  So if a new dining set isn't in your budget right now, there's plenty of other stuff to pick up here!  Their jewelry and art make great gifts and help to promote handmade.
So besides the vintage and indie art and jewelry, Remixologie also carries Modernica.  These lamps are reproduction George Nelson Bubble Lamps and are made with the same process and materials as the originals.  They're the real deal.
With Remixologie's curated and refurbished inventory, the prices are little higher than some furniture shops in town.  But this means all the furniture you buy here is in like new condition and ready to be displayed in your home.  I'm always so used to finding a perfect piece, but there's big ding the side or some coffee stains on top, and being disappointed that I don't have the time or skills to fix it up.  No worries here!  Dini and Amy take care of all of that for you ^_^


Amy and Dini!  These ladies have amazing eye for beautiful Mid-Century pieces.  They have an incredible talent for refurbishing their furniture.  And they're also a couple of the nicest and funniest people I've met in my vintage travels around town!  I kind of just want to go back to hang out with them ^_^

Remixologie is total Mid-Century eye candy and shop that you should pop in often to check out the ever changing, and absolutely gorgeous, selection!
