Modern Retro

Include a dose of nostalgia in your layout using retro-inspired furniture and accents. This trend adds a modern twist to stylish furniture designs from the past. With a little retro charm, any room can become a functional work of art.

Start by choosing a colour scheme or retro element that captures your style. You may prefer the contrast of soft earthy tones and metallic accents or prefer to incorporate blending materials like marble, wood or industrial steel. Each of these elements come together to design a modern space. The Darya chair is a great touch to bring that retro feel to a room, combined here (above) with a marble-and-wood coffee table.

Shape Trends – Go Geo or Organic

Retro designs incorporate unique blends of geometric and organic silhouettes. Consider ways you can utilise one – or both – in your layout.

Geometric shapes are captured in every way you can imagine. You can find angular sofas with defined lines or tables featuring intricate geometric detailing. Simple touches like squared bases or geometric cut-outs add visual interest to tables and accent cupboards. The Gramercy side cupboard is a perfect focal piece to harness this trend. Geometric structures create a calming ambiance in your home. It’s a stylish design that stimulates a sense of serenity, down to the smallest detail.

Organic shapes are also blended into retro sofa designs. Curvaceous seating arrangements boast relaxing appeal before you even have a chance to sit on them. Soft shapes are pleasing to the eye but the experience gets even better when you sink into plush cloud-like cushions wrapped in warm, earthy fabrics.

Mixed Materials

Expect to see eclectic blends of materials and textures throughout 2018. Blending the past with the present, classic designs like accent tables with natural wood tops are finished with contrasting materials such as industrial metal. The mixed material trend continues with retro chic inspiration, like wooden occasional tables featuring luxurious marble-top accents.

It’s All In The Detail

Simple pieces of retro decor completely transform the ambiance of your lounge. The best features of this trend are found in its attention to detail. Simple shapes and unique material combinations are emphasised with stylish modern elements. Retro furniture emphasises attractive features with a modernised twist. Enjoy soft upholstered furniture set upon glossy metal legs or accents like angular footing that enhances the furniture’s appeal and interest. Add timeless touches to this nostalgic trend with tufted button detailing or walnut inlays that contrast soft fabrics.
