The Furniture Edit
Upcycled Sideboard by I Love Retro
Choosing the right furniture can be a tough decision, especially if you’re going for an investment piece like a sofa or dining table. It’s the kind of thing you know you’ll have in your home for a number of years, so it should be made to the highest quality and have the longevity to stay in style. We’ve scoured our site for pieces that reference a bygone era – whether they’re vintage items that have been given a new lease of life, or bespoke-made and designed to pay homage to retro styles.
Whilst modern furniture might be considered more contemporary, these styles have already proven to stand the test of time, so they’re a safe investment. Choosing traditional style furniture will ensure that your home has its own personality and won’t look dated after a few seasons. And traditional doesn’t have to mean dull: classic items with an eye-catching twist, such as brightly painted chests and retro upholstery, will add interest and help to express your personality throughout your home.
