Many people like the look of retro furniture from the 60s and other key eras because there’s something about vintage of which we just can’t get enough. There are so many ways to style retro items too to create a gorgeous outdoor aesthetic – these are our top three tips...
Pare It Back
The beauty of retro is that it already speaks its own style language and makes an impact thanks to its unique character. One way you can style is with a minimalist, stripped-back look. This is especially effective if your garden is more about the low-key style in terms of plants and flowers, perhaps with a very simple colour scheme, or if you’ve done the opposite and gone for a very busy garden with lots of foliage and plants against which your simple retro garden furniture will stand out. If you like to strip it back, we love the Retro Windsor Leisure Set with its simple yet graceful design including two chairs with high curved back and a matching table featuring distressed metalwork.
Embrace Shabby Chic
You never need to ask the question “Is retro furniture in style?” because it’s never off-trend! As another timeless trend, shabby chic works beautifully in an outdoor setting along with vintage pieces to add impact to your space. This retro dining table does the job very nicely with smooth white hues and an antique finish. As with all our retro outdoor furniture, it’s also super lightweight and virtually maintenance-free with capped feet for added protection.
Colour It Up
Retro furniture trends have become brighter and more beautiful in recent years, and it’s not uncommon to see a range of colour and style options with vintage-style pieces. This is a gorgeous way to brighten up your garden whatever the weather or season. We have a range of retro chair sets coated with tough lacquer paint in vibrant colours with a choice of cross back or classic styles and a 4- or 6-chair set. Choose from soft pink, buttercup yellow, sky blue and bright green – match them up or mix them up for a gorgeous rainbow effect.
If space is an issue in your patio or garden, you can always add a touch of retro glamour with a statement piece, Our inviting love bench features scroll arms, a vibrant green colour palette and ample space for two. We also love this chic bar table that makes a subtle impact for all the right reasons thanks to a high ornate leg structure and smooth slatted top.
Our range of retro furniture has all been created using tough but lightweight aluminium frames that will remain rust-free when used outdoors. For guaranteed beauty and longevity with your garden furniture, look no further! Click here to browse our full range of retro garden furniture.
