If you still associate the word “retro” with tacky wallpaper, hippy art and shaggy rugs that were an unsightly contrast to the rest of the room, then you clearly haven’t seen the classic, tasteful range of retro furniture we have available! That’s right folks, retro is back! But thankfully only the good stuff! Now-a-days, retro-styled rooms are a tasteful mix of artistic design and vintage elements, and we’re proud to offer a range that’s guaranteed to add personality and life to your room. To help you achieve a classic, modern look with vintage furnishings, here are a few tips to keep in mind when considering retro furniture:

Different eras

Each era has its own design elements, functions and styles. For example, the 60’s was all about psychedelic patterns, bright colours and “egg-chairs”, while the 70’s was known for excessive timber furnishings, striped wallpaper and lots of red, orange and yellow tones. These styles and tones can really make a room pop when elegantly incorporated into your home (though we’re not sure if we’d recommend the stripy wallpaper…) Match the era with your design style to add personality and flair to any room.

Groovy furnishings

Furnishings for each era each had their own recognisable colours, patterns, finishes and appeal, and more often than not people will buy retro furniture that best suits the architecture of their home.

Hanging 60’s style egg-chairs or charming vintage chandeliers are popular fixtures that really compliment rooms with high ceilings. The 70’s however was more about floor lamps with dramatic lamp shades.

Choosing a handful of furnishings that highlight a particular era mixed with the modern elements of your home, is a sure-fire way to create an authentic but tasteful retro-styled room.
