Mid-century modern furniture and prints business snaps up space in Doncaster

Whittle Jones, managing agents acting on behalf of Northern Trust Company, have completed the letting of unit 3H at their 40,000 sq ft, 30 unit, Lake Enterprise Park estate in Doncaster to Twenty Four 70’s.

The letting was completed on a 3 year lease agreement, and has left just one unit vacant on the estate which is now home to 26 different businesses. The estate provides a range of workshop / industrial units from 505 sq ft up to 2,267 sq ft.

Twenty Four 70’s are a specialist in mid-century modern furniture and prints. They source brands like Nathan, G plan, McIntosh and all the other lesser known manufacturers from the 60s, 70s and even 80s, along with the best from Tretchikoff, Shabner, Ward, and J.H.Lynch; and restore the pieces for their new homes.

Owner of Twenty Four 70’s, Mo Overfield said: “I worked in Outdoor retail for many years, but during Covid, I decided I needed a change of direction. I have always had an interest in Mid Century Modern – 1960s, 1970s and 1980s – and decided to create a business buying, restoring and selling furniture and prints. My unit in Lake Enterprise Park is ideal, in that it provides a secure, well-lit environment, where I can work on the various items I find, and showcase them for sale online.”

Lake Enterprise Park is part of the Kirk Sandall Industrial Estate, situated approximately 4 miles north east of Doncaster town centre via the A630.

Clare Harrison, assistant management surveyor at Whittle Jones Yorkshire, added: “I am delighted to welcome Twenty Four 70’s to Lake Enterprise Park. Mo has been a pleasure to deal with and I am pleased we were able to provide the space he required to facilitate his business expansion plans.”
