It’s not often you’ll want to mimic your mum’s style in your contemporary Aussie home, but for John and Angela - the brains behind Model 143 - it’s one of their favourite sources of inspiration. Taking their hobby for collecting all things retro and morphing it into an eclectic mixed bag of nostalgia with a contemporary twist has resulted in one of the best Mid-Century stores around.

From vintage coasters and sprawling wall units, to an assortment of treasures from the 1950s to 1980s, John and Angel love to hear “my mum had that” from customers travelling far and wide to visit the store regularly. The duo don’t play it safe, preferring to surprise and delight their customers with truly unique items that evoke a sense of home.
