Retro furniture may seem a little whimsical, sometimes and can even allude to pop-culture, and maybe even kitschy at times. But if one wants to achieve greater and perfect retro style, then one has to understand the kitsch and have to use it deliberately. Retro furniture are those furnitures that have the look of being made or either belong to the earlier decades like between the 1950s and the 1980s.
The word retro means looking at the past years and the trend in earlier years are known as retro in now a days. And therefore when we talk about the furniture from that period, we call them as retro furniture. These furniture normally belong to the decades of 1950s, 1960s, 1970s and the few starting years of the 1980s.
Furniture from the decade of 1950s carries a lot of influence of trending towards the modern furniture. Boldly painted fabrics and having wallpapers with a sleek and sender profile furniture placed against it was the perfect picture we can think of in retro style. Chrome bar stools, formica-topped tables and diners were the retro furniture from 1950s decade. In the s1960s, psycgedelic patters and splashes of color were there. Low coffee tables and sideboards mark the style in 1960s. We can see one piece molded chair in that decade only. 1970s marks the furniture that was a bit more bulky as well as a little chunky in looks. Orange and earthy brown colors dominated this time furniture. In 1980s, teal and mauve colors were in trend in the furniture.
