RETRO seems to be coming back in a very sexy way. This past year retro has certainly sparked my interest. It had not been something that I had specifically shopped for but, I was up for the challenge for this particular client.
Remember to keep an open mind. I came across this great pair of mid-century chairs and the dealer was having a sale! Score!
The Scoop Chair by Carter Bros. Furniture once located in Salisbury North Carolina. Crafted and peaked in the years 1945-1970.
Orange was a BIG color in the 60’s and 70’s as we know and we may cringe at seeing the color creep back in especially on a leopard print rug. OUCH! But I had another plan for these… off to see my favorite upholsterer….
My upholsterer had the challenge of removing all of the vinyl very carefully so I could clean up the wood and bring it back to life. The image on the right is before treating the wood, note how dry and lack of luster the wood looks. Image on the left is after treatment of wood. The walnut wood shines through.
Do you have anything retro that has recently been redone? I would love to see.
