Retro wardrobes: choosing your style

‘Retro’ refers to a wide range of different styles, motifs and themes. Generally, we refer to products in a style that is outdated but that has a comeback and becomes popular again. The sense of nostalgia and character from past fashions means that retro pieces are an eternally popular choice for those who love their interior look to tell a story.

While it doesn’t refer to a specific period in history, retro pieces are generally considered to be those from or inspired by the mid-20th century onwards.

One retro style which continues to be as relevant today as the period in which it was first designed is mid-century minimalism. With fewer materials available in post-war Europe and a movement towards clean and simple designs to ease the complications of a continent in turmoil, Danish modern and other Scandinavian-influenced styles began to dominate the decorative arts scene.

Typical Danish modern looks include fresh, clean and functional designs with an unmatchable durability as well. A classic Danish modern style wardrobe is typically a double-doored item built from quality hardwoods such as teak, rosewood and oak. Minimalist features complete the look of the classic mid-Century wardrobe including simple straight handles and plenty of quality storage space for shoes or accessories.
