The ’50s style is back in fashion

From this time come the most famous cult objects in terms of furniture and home accessories such. These include the Eames Lounge Chair, Arne Jacobsen's Egg Chair, Verner Panton's Panton Chair and Poul Henningsen's PH Pine Chair. Such design classics not only impress with their refined profile and optimal functionality, but also with their ingenious concept and unmistakable aura.

Typical of the '50s style are the simple, clean lines and the organic shapes such. B. at the "kidney table" and the "cocktail chair". Although the retro style goes hand in hand with the Scandinavian design and the Bauhaus, there is a small but significant difference - function does not work here. There is a successful symbiosis between function and form, which contributes to optimum comfort and at the same time to a perfect design look.

With the comeback of the '50s style also the pattern wallpaper moves into our four walls. Graphic patterns, stylized plants and flowery motifs - depending on your own taste - are available. Diamond patterns are also very popular and often occur in a retro style interior. And not only on the wall wallpaper, but also on all kinds of home textiles such as blankets, pillows, curtains.

The right harness is of course indispensable. Porcelain sets for coffee and tea as well as robust, colorful glasses are especially recommended.
