cr-7200_1014Want to create a modern masterpiece. I never like to get too locked in to the latest trend, but I must admit the revival of retro does make me happy. This Mad Men inspired decorating craze is actually quite easy to accomplish, with so many fabulous furniture suppliers making it fun and exciting to get the look you want. Start with the Sawyer Sofa from CrLaine Furniture, so many fabulous fabrics and colors to choose from and perfectly sized at 79W x 36D x 35H. Retro usually involves solid colors with not a lot of pattern, use deeper saturated tones. rowe-N780-006Keep some fluidity in your furniture selections, use pieces that have architectural elements. The Harris Chair from Rowe Furniture has everything you are looking for. Amazing quality and made in the U.S.A, size is 29W x 30D x 36H, great proportion for our sofa selection.sur-cos9092Add some abstract patterns to your toss pillows or as shown here in our area rug choice. From the Cosmopolitan collection from Surya Rugs, it is hand tufted and available in a variety of sizes. Just the right amount of pattern we are looking for and the saturated colors needed to keep it visually interesting.hk-5398_55464roomCan’t say enough good things about our final piece. The Studio 7H record player/ gaming console is exactly what our retro room needs. You would need to purchase your record player separately, but what a great piece of furniture, and perfectly finished in a low sheen walnut. Honestly just saying record player brings back so many great memories, the whole room makes me smile.
