Eccentric Pear is a funky new ‘pop up’ retro furniture store, the latest addition to the Freo pop-up strip on Adelaide Street.

Michele and Natasha Pene are a mother/daughter partnership and proud founders of this funky ‘pop up’ retro furniture store. With creative backgrounds, combined of arts, interior design and upholstery to name a few, this dynamic duo keeps busy giving new life to tired old furniture….restoring, re-upholstering and reviving old items.

Alive with the flare of 60’s chic, with antique quirks and a couple of new pieces thrown into the mix, the store takes on a real homely feel that allows you to invision what the furniture could look like in your own living area, bedroom or dinning room.

Situated on the corner of Point st and Adelaide Terrace in Fremantle, the creative pair have injected colour and funk back into a previously empty space.

It’s hard to say what you might you find on any given day in Eccentric Pear, as the furniture is literally walking out the door? But if you get in quick you will fall in love with comfy eames era lounge chairs still in original pale blue vinyl. There’s a great restored teak bar in the front corner window complete with square orange geometric design. A gorgeous boomerang arm 3 seater lounge in original vinyl sits nearby. The seat cushions have been newly covered in a chocolate, gold and taupe retro print. There are beautiful lamps and glass decanters placed on bars and buffets. Teacups on tables, original and retro paintings on the walls and one of a kind re-upholstered chairs in bright colours and designs.

While you make up your mind, dig into the big bowls of giant gumballs!

Where? Corner of Adelaide St & Point St, Fremantle

When? You can find Michele and Tash at Eccentric Pear from 10 till 5 Tuesday-Friday and 10 till 2.30 Saturdays
