Retro-inspired interiors and living spaces have made a huge comeback in the last year or so. Now, when we say ‘go retro’, we most certainly do not mean that you go overboard with bright colors and vivacious patterns. In fact, don’t even opt for a full retro theme. Be innovative and add some cool mid-century modern furniture, orb-style fireplace or get some patterned rugs to enhance the existing contemporary style of your living space. To get you started on the right direction, we have picked two of the most iconic and celebrated mid-century furniture pieces – Platner Lounge Chair and Table and Barcelona Chair.
Warren Platner Furniture Pieces
Warren Platner Dining Table is popular among serious design lovers and every time you look at it, you would inevitably accept that there is simply no way of improving it. This piece creates an illusion of space which contrasts to their solid construction and materials for a distinctly contemporary feel. Not only the table, but the chairs that came out of his stable feature an elaborate collection of steel rods on the base that creates a unique architectural theme. The dining table can also be used as a coffee table in the living room.
The lounge chair designed by Platner has a sleek yet timeless design and features the same collection of steel rods that give it a beautiful shape. The curved form of the chair is a design statement and can be used in residential as well as commercial spaces. The chair comes with a cushion for optimum comfort.
