Today's fashion-savvy observers are keenly aware that the "retro" look is everywhere: it's in our cars, our clothing as well as in our furniture. Encouraging this trend are the popular home makeover television shows that have infused the public consciousness with adventurous notions in decorating. Retro chic's bold colors and contemporary forms add fresh cheerfulness and whimsy to home interiors. Considering the demands of daily life, it's no wonder this latest style is so appealing. The design make adults nostalgic for childhood and the colors are reminiscent of a box of crayons.
Drawing inspiration from mid-century modernism, Home Decorators Collection(R) developed the Soho modern seating group. In 2003, the catalog introduced one chair in two colors and it exploded into an entire collection which includes more than thirty distinctive designs in eleven opulent colors in velvety faux-suede fabric: red, beige, Seville orange, Moroccan brown, yellow, green, black, blue, pink, eggplant or chamois. Select items are also available in supple black or brown leather.
The Strata Chair, Loveseat, Chaise and Sofa naturally evoke images of relaxing with a martini while Frank Sinatra croons from the hi-fi. Triangular throw pillows offset the curvaceous frame, reminiscent of the 1950s influence of geometric shapes. Carefully crafted of high-density polyurethane foam, offering cushiony support, the Strata modern home decor in your living room provides a decorative focal point and breathes new life into the look of the room. Strata loveseats and corner lounge chairs also look great in the bedroom. Add a Strata contemporary sofa and chair (or two) to the office for stunning effect.
The most popular piece in this collection is the Juno Swivel armchair, with its back sloping into an armrest. This generously proportioned retro chair features a fun, futuristic design, with fluid curves and gentle angles that follow the shape of the body to enhance ultimate relaxation. Juno retro chairs combine a hint of nostalgia with the up-to-date sensibility and function of modern chairs. Pair it with a round, square, oval or rectangular ottoman of the same or complimentary color.
Since the emphasis is placed on cultivating “personal style” these days, try coordinating these pieces with other decorating styles, such as Asian, Mission, or even more traditional Queen Anne-inspired styles. Place all pieces on top of a shaggy white Flokati Rug of 100% wool and impress houseguests with the room’s luxurious yet laid-back ambiance.
