Actually, what characterizes the 50s style?
50s style or rather the retro living style is back in vogue. There is timelessness and coolness, which are always present for true connoisseurs and design fanatics. Also the most famous cult objects in terms of furniture and home accessories such as such as the Eames Lounge Chair from this time, the “egg” chairs by Arne Jacobsen, the “Panton Chair” by Verner Panton and the “PH cones” lamp by Poul Henningsen. Such classics are outfitted not only with refined profile and optimum functionality, but also has an excellent concept and unmistakable aura.
Typical for the 50s are the simple, clear lines and organic forms such as in the “kidney-shaped table” and the “lounge chair” style. Although the retro style hand-in-hand with the Scandinavian design and the Bauhaus, a small but significant difference exists here – function not going on here. A successful symbiosis, which contributes to optimum comfort and at the same time perfect design optics between function and form.
50s style for a unique atmosphere in the living room
The most preferred colors for the retro style are the pastels – this season especially delicate pink and smooth azure. Also Flash colors are very often used as dynamic accents and serve cream-white, Brown, olive, teal green and black as compensation. Why has the retro housing style grounding and calming effect and creates a pleasant ambiance, helps the a kind of stylish cosiness.
In addition to the natural materials such as oak, beech, teak wood, linen and cotton, various art and foams are used like. Think for example of the inflatable armchair “Blow” or the “Sacco” bean bag, filled with polystyrene balls. Here also the strong influence is the pop art movement. In fact, both styles are actually often as synonyms and are perceived by many as.
Send art color pop
With the comeback of the 50s style also the pattern wallpaper moves into our four walls. Graphic, stylized plants and floral motifs – according to your own taste – are available. Diamond pattern are also quite popular, and occur with a décor in retro style very often. And not just on the wallpaper, but also more generally on all possible home textiles such as blankets, cushions, curtains.
The matching Dinnerware is of course impossible to imagine. Porcelain sets for coffee and tea, as well as robust, colorful glasses are particularly recommended. You can find them at the flea market in your area or in an antique store or maybe even from the attic. If you have but just don’t feel like used items and wind need a fresh “retro” in your home, you should look at the new collections at Bloomingville or Westwing. There, you will most likely find it.
