We often hear the phrase, "That's so retro!" and the same goes for the furniture/design industry. Retro furniture belongs to, or has the look of having been made in the decades between the 1950s and the 1980s. The word retro signifies looking backward. When designers, manufacturers and customers speak about retro furniture, we are referring to a style of furniture that looks back with nostalgia and pays homage to styles that were popular in the past.
Minimalist interior is: The absence of decorative elements and impractical furniture; Restrained colors: the basis of style is white and gray / black / brown colors. Accents of natural hues and a palette of finishing materials (metal, treated wood, brick) are allowed; Strict wall, floor and ceiling finishing: floor and ceiling should be smooth (usually light), the walls can be painted, covered with decorative plaster, less often used plain wallpaper or wall panels (main color is white); Space, freedom, plenty of light: large windows, several sources of artificial lighting; Multi-functional furniture; Built-in appliances; Walls can be decorated with paintings, perceived as an art object: nothing should detract from their contemplation.

During the 1970s, furniture began to lose its sleek quality and started to become a bit bulkier and chunky. Avocado greens, harvest golds, oranges and earthy browns dominated the color palettes of furniture and accompanying decor. As for the 1980s, that was when art deco heavily influenced the decorating style, as did South Western motifs. Country styles were also popular. Teal and mauve are two colors that were popular in most of the styles, which included patterns ranging from geometrics to florals. In a nutshell, even though these furniture and interior decor styles were diverse, they all fall under the umbrella of being retro style. Today, you'll see nods to a wide range retro styles in modern collections.
