I am quite the fan of modernist retro furniture, and of recent times became the proud owner of an Australian made Danish Deluxe Lounge suite. Whilst it bore the signs of age across its worn timber arms, sagging cushions and frayed upholstery, it didn’t take too much to give it a new facelift. My local furniture restorer gave it a good shellac, firm cushions and beautiful blue upholstery – Enough to give it another 20 years of life! I have since been on the look out for other great mid century designs, and in my search came across fabulous Adelaide based business Retro Modern . Retro Modern source and restore old unwanted mid century sideboards, buffets and tables and recreate them with their own contemporary twist into beautiful pieces of furniture again.
A look through the Retro Modern website offers a treasure chest of both refurbished pieces and un-restored pieces. You can take your pick and ask for a bespoke transformation or take your pick from old ieces made new again. If you are in need of new furniture, it is well worth a look – as the old adage goes “they don’t make them like they used to”!
If the above pieces of furniture have wet your appetite, pop on over to Retro Modern – make a cuppa first as you may be some time. Retro Modern are based in Adelaide but have some pieces available in Melbourne. If you live elsewhere you will be happy to hear they deliver all over Australia!
