Scandi Retro has simple design that features clean lines and functionality. The design of the furniture from the mid-century is still considered beautiful today and that’s why furniture from that Era still has high demand today. Furniture pieces are painted with colours influenced by nature. These include shades of cream, brown, gray, cream, and green, but it was also during the 1950s when bolder colours of every home came into play and furniture became available in white, black, red, and turquoise.

Comfort and leisure is what Scandi, Retro Furniture brings to its owner. Some products come with leather drawer designs that give the piece a classic edge. The design is both clean and playful achieving maximum potential in design. They work well in your living space or bedroom and make for storage pieces that are aesthetically beautiful.

Scandinavian furniture is perfect for people who are looking for a simple minimalist interior design. Its sleek design is perfect for smaller rooms, as the furniture doesn’t occupy a lot of space, unlike other styles. Plus, with the majority of our collection being of a neutral colour palette, the blend with your room’s colour scheme in one of ease and simplicity. 

The old retro designs are often inspired by iconic styles of the past. When choosing a modern retro piece, be sure to stay within a theme. You can choose a kitschy item from the 1950s, mod look of the 1960s, or a bohemian piece from the 1970s. Once you have chosen the theme, you should be consistent with the pieces. That way you can move furniture around the house.

A modern retro product can be the focal point of the room. You can use something unique and eye-catching, such as the tape cassette table or a Dissymmetric vintage chest Trunk. Don’t be afraid to mix and match prints and colours. Retro designs come in vibrant colours that add to their appeal. The best thing about retro designs is that you can mix it well with new modern designs. Using items from a single era can be challenging, but you can easily combine old vintage design with modern ones and still make your room look funktastic.
