Retro furniture is a broad term that’s generally used to describe any furniture from the past that has come back into fashion. Buying retro furniture has become extremely fashionable over the last decade and is an excellent way to buy high quality furniture at a great price, whilst also improving your ‘green’ credentials through ‘up-cycling’.
Several designers and furniture brands have become synonymous with retro furniture and at Mingus Vintage you’ll find that our collection of retro furniture in Leeds includes stunning pieces by G Plan, Stag, Ercol and John and Sylvia Reid to name but a few.
Whilst retro furniture can be used to describe any furniture or accessories from the past, the term usually refers to furniture from the period from 1950 up to the 1970s. It was during this period that people began to favour contemporary design, as opposed to the ornate, traditional styles that had been popular up to that point. Ercol’s classic Windsor chair, for example, became incredibly popular when launched in 1948 and is a great example of a classic design, refined to suit more modern tastes.
During the 1950s, Scandinavian design began to attract a strong following, with teak quickly becoming a very fashionable wood. Danish designers began to produce furniture with that low, long look that we know and love today and Danish-style teak sideboards are now amongst the most sought after, retro pieces on the market. At Mingus Vintage we are one of the largest suppliers of vintage and retro furniture in Leeds and our collection usually includes several stunning retro sideboards to choose from. Perfect for adding impact and style to a living room, dining room or hallway, buying a retro sideboard is a great investment.
It’s not only retro furniture that’s become incredibly popular - retro accessories have become must-have items too. At Mingus Vintage our collection of retro furniture in Leeds also includes the perfect accessories for you home - from stylish magazine racks and storage trunks, through to eye-catching ornaments, lighting and art.
