The 50s are back

This season that begins brings with it a very special decorative style, we return to the 50s decor, to tartan-patterned wallpapers and furniture with very refined straight lines made of wood that combine well in any modern home with contemporary and more avant-garde furniture.

From this decade of the XNUMXth century we can highlight wooden furniture lined with crocodile skins, parchment and other quality coverings that are currently being imitated with synthetic materials that are reminiscent of such special and appreciated furniture with narrow and visible legs. These peculiar sideboards are accompanied by chrome metal chairs upholstered in vinyl that have survived over the years, once again being the protagonists of many homes.

It also uses the home appliances modern with a 50s aesthetic with decorative elements as well as functional ones, these are devices that bring together current technology and mid-century retro design, being able to find everything from toasters, radios or televisions to washing machines or refrigerators with the rounded shapes typical of our grandparents' houses and that can bring a new touch in our kitchen or living room.

As to color The mint green, turquoise and pink so typical of that time used in fabrics and wallpapers are back, and the red white and black tones in the kitchens where the Formica furniture is combined with the chrome on the legs and countertops.
