Retro trends are back in interior design in a big way. Similar to fashion design, furniture takes colours, shapes, materials and designs from the past and mixes it with modern inspiration to create a unique, on-trend piece. If you are looking to update your property with a vintage twist, you will love these hot trends in retro furniture that will look great in your home.
- Choose an era to suit your design style. Some people prefer the mid 20th century looks from 1930’s to the 1960’s, whereas other like the styles of the 70’s and 80’s. Either way, have a look at which characteristics you prefer and what will fit in with the style of the rest of your home.
- Install retro lighting to go with your retro furniture as it is an integral part of interior style. Whether you choose a floor lamp with a big shade or aluminium wall pendants, make sure the lights match the period of retro furniture you choose.
- Match accessories with the decor, such as retro tiles, appliances, mirrors, clocks, dishware, etc. If you want to add a small touch to your home without taking a risk with furniture, simply place retro accessories around the house.
- When it comes to new trends in retro furniture, you can either buy new in the shops, or you can look in second-hand stores and car boot sales for furniture that you can redecorate.
