Spark up your living room - how a vintage cigarette machine will add some retro charm to your home

Many people are happy to fill their homes with whatever they can easily get their hands on in their local stores. They’re not too bothered about individuality, or having things in their home worth talking about. At Games Room Company, we like to think we know our customers pretty well - and we know you are not these kind of people. You have a more discerning taste, an eye for quality and detail, and you want your homes to be full of beautiful, interesting things.

That’s why we know you’ll be intrigued by our vintage cigarette machine. It might be a surprise to hear we have one of these in our showroom - you’d be forgiven for thinking that at Games Room Company, we’re only in the business of selling things for your games room! While that is our main passion, we often stumble across vintage items that are too good to pass on - so we snap up them to tempt you with for other rooms in your home. Our cigarette machine is an example of this in action.

A nice mix of style and substance

It’s a real slice of retro cool for your home. Sleek, silver, with an undeniable vintage charm, it will catch the attention of everyone who enters your home. Our cigarette machine is an original, manufactured in the mid 1900s and in awesome condition. It still works by coin operation - endless fun for your guests, and a guaranteed talking point.

Vintage cigarette machines are a proper piece of history. They were once a familiar sight across the UK, when smoking cigarettes was a hobby of almost every adult and a symbol of glamour. Most public buildings would have a cigarette machine for use, and they even made regular appearances on street corners for extra convenience. Vintage cigarette machines are a nice reminder of a bygone era, and are even more sought after now they are a rarity; they’re no longer commercially available for use in the UK.

Although we think they’re seriously cool, many people might question the appeal of a cigarette machine in this day and age. Smoking is no longer the popular pastime it once was, and is not something to be promoted or glamourised. We completely understand this - which is why we’ve made an addition to our cigarette machine. If you love the look of the vending machine but question using it for its original purpose, we’ve got you covered - this cigarette machine can actually be used as a drinks cabinet!

Use it whichever way you prefer...

Yes, if you require it, Games Room Company can turn our cigarette machine into a glass fronted drinks cabinet, so you can still enjoy its old school charm without the unhealthy price tag! This will look gorgeous in any home, and is functional as well as quirky and stylish.

A vintage cigarette machine may not be an obvious choice for home decor - but that’s exactly why we think it’s such a good one. Unexpected and interesting, but still a fun, style addition to your homeware. It will give any room a throwback to more glamorous time, and , whether you use it for its original purpose or as a cabinet, you’re guaranteed to love it for a long time to come.
