But what does retro decoration consist of? It is in fact a trend that brings furniture, accessories and objects that come straight from the art deco years, the pop style of the 60s and the post-war style of the 50s (but this period is generally extended to the 70s and 80s) back into fashion. Definitely nostalgic, this style will plunge us into bright colours and futuristic shapes. In the common imagination, Andy Warhol is the one who most represents this period (we remember in particular his posters and his colourful posters representing the one and only one) Marilyn Monroe. In order to respect and adopt this vintage decoration, you will have to be daring, daring and above all be careful not to make any mistakes so as not to overload your interior!
The term "vintage" refers to objects from past decades, which is why it is essential to focus on the authenticity of the furniture. Examples include tables or stools made of formica, round tables for the dining room or furniture with compass feet, characteristic of the 1950s. Sofas and armchairs will be made of leather or fabric, usually in light colours to create a warm and comfortable atmosphere. The vintage sofa is often too small and will often have elements from the 1950s and 1960s such as wood for the structure, rounded shapes or integrated shelves. In terms of materials, the retro vintage will feature brass, pine, velvet, teak, wood and metal or bronze. Colours are also very important in the retro style! You will often find mustard yellow, pastel pink, beige, brown, black and white. In short, a multitude of colours that come in infinite variations.
