Although we couldn’t be there this year, the stylists here at Sweetpea & Willow have enjoyed keeping up with the goings on at Maison & Objet via their Instagram. One major aesthetic we have seen a lot of is the resurgence of Retrofuture – a striking mix of contemporary curves and mid-century design that is breaking through in the interior world. Read on to discover our top picks and tips for embracing a futuristic flair into your space.
Retrofuture embraces bold shapes and curve appeal as well as nostalgic design, making it a striking, yet timeless design choice. In living rooms and lounges, we expect to see the organic shapes of sofas and seating transferring over to coffee tables and nesting tables. Eye-catching marble and contemporary brass will create a sense of timeless elegance, and textured fabrics will definitely add to the luscious and sleek appeal of the space.
Be ahead of the curve and serve in style. The innovative designs associated with the Retrofuture aesthetic will liven up your dining space with bold and enchanting energy – perfect if you adore hosting. Bring the Retrofuture style to your dining space with modern design chairs, bold colours, metallic features, as well as sculptural lighting and accessories for a strikingly modern statement.
Make your bedroom an inviting haven with sumptuous shapes and captivating curves guaranteed to infuse your space with a soothing and relaxing feel, creating the perfect environment for sleep. Beds that adopt rounded shapes can feel all-encompassing and cosy while adding a pop of retro panache to your decor. Splurge on shapely chests of drawers, bedside tables and groovy accent chairs for an utterly indulgent Retrofuture feel.
Looking to add a retrofuture flair in any room? Just add a light touch with a wall sconce, shimmering chandelier, or creative table lamp. Lighting is not only a great way to brighten a room, but it literally highlights your décor. Contributing rounded shapes, striking metallic features, and illuminating orbs, lighting becomes a great transitional piece to incorporate this trending style with your current interiors.
