Creating Modern Retro Style

Creating Modern Retro Style

Ever wondered how to create a retro style to suit your modern home?
Modern retro style provides a nostalgic flavour of by-gone times, usually from the 1950s, 60s, 70s or even the 1980s.  You can create a retro look for your home by choosing a particular period and re-creating a room from that era, or alternatively, choose a few retro items of furniture to go into a modern room to create eye-catching signature pieces.

Here are a few of our favourite modern retro pieces from the Danetti furniture range.

Lota Trendy Round Dining Table

The Lota Trendy Round Dining Table is an eye-catching retro style dining table which will seat four people. The stylish round table top is available in either a rich dark Wenge finish or White High Gloss Lacquer finish.
The table top is supported by four trendy tapered legs finished in shiny chrome. This would look gorgeous in a modern kitchen-diner teamed up with some curvy retro dining chairs.

Zola Curvy Plastic Coloured Chair 

If you are looking for a comfortable retro plastic chair then look no further than the Zola Curvy Plastic Coloured Chair.

Elario Bar Stool

To get that retro but stylish look for your breakfast bar, try the Elario Bar Stool. The Elario Bar Stool consists of a chromed steel tube frame and an upholstered seat with an attractive chromed band.

Available in several options including faux or real leather, the round shape and vibrant colours combined with the chromed steel legs make the design of the Elario Bar Stool reminiscent of a 1960’s American Diner.
