The 60s style is evergreen, therefore, choosing retro furniture for your house is not at all something unusual. Bold floral curtains, sofas with thin legs and white cabinets, with small adjustments, can all be successfully used to decorate a house with a unique air, one that’s both comfortable and very good looking.
Leather sofas and armchairs are emblematic of that period. If you want to bring them in your living room to integrate it in this style, make sure they have long and thin legs, either wooden or metal. If you are not a fan of leather, you can also choose textile upholstery colored in very bold tones. The fashionable colors in the 60s were red, orange, brown, black and gray.
The coffee tables and the lunch tables were very popular in those years. They are characterized by elegance, strength and a classic design.If made out of wood, these items can easily find their way into your living room. Why wood? Because it will neutralize the bright colors of the upholstery and balance the entire decor.
The dining table can be either round or rectangular, with long and thin legs and glass placed on top for protection. The coffee table will be defined by finesse, although, most often, it is constructed out of solid wood.
The cabinets, which must also fit into the environment and were the most popular item of that period, may come in different shapes and colors.
Equally suitable will be the carved cabinets, in various designs. They are able to give uniqueness to any room. Also, you should consider natural wood colored cabinets, with lacquered surfaces, and sometimes with combined shades.
As it’s said, there is nothing new under the sun, and the fashion keeps returning. What is modern today, will be retro 50 years from now. And what was modern 50 years ago, could be modern again someday. With certain adjustments, of course.
