Wonderwood Amsterdam: A Heaven Of Wooden Antiques



For lovers of mid-century furniture and wooden art pieces from the 1930s-70s, a must-see shop to visit is WonderWood, located close to the Dam Square, Munt & Stopera. WonderWood features a deep and varied collection of over 100 vintage plywood chairs, along with a plethora of assorted wooden antique collectibles.

“The patina of an older piece is often ten times nicer than the look of a re-edition.”

Wiet Hekking, founder of Wonderwood

WonderWood is the only existing shop/gallery specializing in worldwide vintage plywood items. Prices range from 1 Euro, for a simple but nice wooden pencil to high-end prices for pieces with museum quality. The mix of vintage plywood, some re-editions, art, gadgets combined with WonderWood’s easy access creates a special atmosphere that provides surprises , not only for collectors, but for everyone interested in design, art and fun. More about Wonderwood on Dwell.

We loved: the outstanding quality and variety of furniture on display, and the warm welcome we were given by Wiet Hekking, the founder of Wonderwood; if he is not kept too busy in his office at the back of the shop, Wiet will probably tell you amazing stories about vintage design and plywood…

Purchase: None. But we got really tempted by an original “Standard Chair” by French architect and designer Jean Prouvé.
