Retro Rules – how to bring the past into the present for a picture-perfect space

So you’d love to bring a bit of Mad Men style to your place but don’t want to commit to the full mid-century makeover? We hear you. It’s actually pretty simple to add some retro inspo to any interior with the addition of a few carefully curated items.

Find a feature

By adding some bold and playful storage, such as our Chrissy credenza (below), a look-at-me desk like our Replica George Nelson Swag Leg number, an iconic mid-century icon a la our Replica Arne Vodder tallboy, or a couple of quirky prints, a clock or fun textiles, you can channel old-school style without going the extra mile.

Rock a retro sofa or armchair 

Sometimes one distinctive piece is all you need. A swish sofa or armchair is an obvious choice, you only have to change the one thing and there’ll be no mistaking your style statement. From a curvy number to a buttoned-up beauty to dashing Danish designs, there’s plenty of retro style to steal at Matt Blatt.

There’s a (retro) chair in there…

By mixing a retro chair with a modern desk, adding replica dining chairs to an edgy table or setting a mid-century easy chair next to the latest contemporary coffee table, you’ll ensure your overall look is a touch eclectic and totally on-trend. You’ll also avoid a predictable room that screams ‘put together’ rather than ‘personality’.
