If you’re keen to revamp the appearance of your home, you might be seeking new furniture items. Changing your chairs, tables, and other such items can greatly impact the overall look and feel of your home, and these days, there are plenty of different choices to pick from.

In this article, we share tips on how you can change your home with modern retro furniture by offering examples of our favourite pieces of furniture at Pash Classics. 

How To Create The Perfect Modern Look With Retro Furniture

According to experts, retro furniture creations are still very much in favour among consumers. Property expert, author and journalist Martin Roberts said that “retro or mid-century furniture remains just as popular today as they were back in the days.”

He also suggests minimalistic objects typically characterised by simple and sleek designs can be a great option. The specialist claimed these generally come in one solid colour to work well with most room schemes. Mr Roberts also stated: “with living spaces generally reducing in size, furniture needs to be in harmony with the room and ideally, be multifunctional; seats that double as storage…storage that doubles as beds, and so on.”

Make An Impact With Colours

When you’re trying to choose your contemporary furniture, you must consider colour! 

Commenting on this issue, the writer suggested that if you’re not confident about using colours, it’s a good idea to paint walls in neutral shades such as cream, beige, mocha and caramel and then to “splash out” on a bright accent colour for one wall. This colour can be matched with various accessories, including cushions, lampshades, rugs, etc.

Artistic Retro Bedroom Furniture

Creating a unique effect with lighting can take some creative thinking. Placing traditional lights so they cast shadows is a great way to give a room a completely different character once it has gone dark. 

This can be tricky to get right since the shadow may cover an all-important area. If you want to create a uniform light, then the best option is to choose designer lights. At Pash Classics, we have some incredibly creative designs, ranging from floor lamp varieties to table lamps and even contemporary pendant lighting

The designer of the pendant lighting was a Danish author and architect who primarily worked through the first half of the 20th century to create fearsomely unique designs that are sought after today. Fortunately, we have two lights directly inspired by his design style, which utilise light exceptionally well to create an artwork of light. 

The Artichoke Lamp is an artful creation that is unexpected and unpredictable in its design. The panelled latticework manages the light so that it reflects and warms the entire lamp until it exits. As you might imagine, when this is lit up, it is unlike any lamp you have ever seen. Its design is timeless despite being created decades ago, and its use of light is magical.

Each of these examples of lighting goes fantastically with our retro furniture. If you have an interest in 20th-century design, then we are one of the best places to come to, particularly since we have gone to lengths to recreate some of the best designs by some of the best designers!

Retro furniture and lighting like this can help to give your interior decor a culturally referential element which people can often instantly recognise as being from a particular period. Overall, it can create an effect that may be consigned to history as far as the general populace is concerned, but these timeless styles have enough creativity and vitality to still exist today.
