Retro furniture is having a revival this year – and the 50′s style is back in a big way.
Take some style inspiration from some of Click4interior’s favourite fifties pieces;
The fifties style has quietly grown in popularity with just the odd fifties inspired design here and there, like the classic Eames chair (if your purse cannot afford the original see http://www.click4interiors.co.uk/armchairs/zigzag-designer-armchair-2215902-392098-832192.php for a gorgeous chair inspired by the classic).
But now it seems designers have fully embraced the 50′s as a source of inspiration. We at Click4interiors are spotting more design classics and pieces with strong 50′s influences – and we will Pin our best finds here http://pinterest.com/click4interiors/for-the-home/.
The 50′s style is characterized by clean simple lines, rounded edges and the celebration of form as the focus of design. The Teak Lounge Chair, an iconic shape that cannot fail to impress, is one of the lounge chairs that defined the decade; a must to get an authentic 50′s style.

I remember seeing heavy duty industrial furniture in Factories (now museums) of the bygone eras that I have visited as a child. Now as we tire of the flat packed and “perfect look” furniture a new trend of timeworn industrial furniture is emerging. People who aspire to affirm their own freedom of choice in matters of taste and lifestyle buy the “real” industrial diner furniture, however majority of us might not be able to find such pieces or to afford to buy the “original” antiques, hence why manufacturers began to reproduce furniture from the Industrial Revolution era.
industrial looking coffee table
Our Rydal industrial coffee table is an good example of such furniture. It has been manufactured from weathered timber and has a deceitfully distressed finish. The Rydal coffee table’s metallic effect frame that supports the timber table top and a shelf ,the metallic effect composite corners complete with nuts and bolts and the industrial looking castors ensure that the coffee table looks as if it came straight out of a factory from the Industrial Revolution. The Rydal coffee table has the industrial edge (you could believe that it’s seen a few years) – adding it to your living room is a great way to work this look into your home!

I am always on the outlook for timeless pieces of furniture , so I was so pleased to find this stunning contemporary Armonica coffee table retailing at £234.00. It’s base is made out of dark finished vertical steel rods with a round tempered clear glass table top. It screams quality and substance.
I wasn’t searching for them but the Bartok table lamps made my day! Their open wire bases are made out of shaped, coloured wire rods . The Bartok table lamps retail at £99.00 on our website, they come in two different styles and two colours. The Bartok Red table lamp base has been created with red coloured metal wire rods. It stands tall and proud and comes with a red trapeze shaped lamp shade.
The Bartok Black lamp has a different designed lamp base that also is made out of shaped wire rods but coloured black. A black drum lamp shade finishes off the look.
The designs of the Armonica coffee table and the Bartock table lamps remind me of the iconic furniture designed by the 60s architect and designer Mr.Warren Platner .He has designed a range of furniture made out of steel rods. The idea to shape steel rods into furniture came to him during a walk through the countryside where a shiny sheath of wheat inspired him to transformed nickel plated steel rods into sculptural furniture that is now considered a design icon. It has won him the American Institute of Architects International Award.
Mr Warren Platner’s prototypes were sold at an auction signalling growing interest by collectors of Mid-Century Modern design and this collection has been in continuous production ever since.
