Retro sofas & Funky furniture

How you decorate your home says a lot about you.  And decorating with retro sofas says that you are fun, interested in history, and don’t take life too seriously.  Retro sofas come in all shapes and sizes and can fit in any room with almost any décor.  They make great gifts and also look great in offices.  Here are the many varieties of retro sofas available to choose from.

The earliest retro sofas come from the roaring 20’s.  This decorating style is very popular because it hearkens back to a time of living in the moment and enjoying life.  These sofas are available in several different styles.  Art deco sofas are very unique in shape, yet they fit almost any décor because they have neutral tones and are made with simple and popular materials such as chrome.  Another type of 1920’s retro sofa is the settee.  Settees are usually made out of wood and sport richly embroidered cushions.  They are especially nice in a sitting room, bedroom or library.

The next set of retro sofas comes from the 1940’s and 1950’s.  After The Great Depression and World War 2, America enjoyed a boom in home décor ideas and products.  Families were settling down and enjoying life once again or for the first time.  The unique designs in these retro sofas show this through new materials such as vinyl and chrome, and new color pallets such as soft pinks, yellows, blues and greens.  These sofas are wonderful in a living room, outdoor space, or office.
