47 Pieces of Retro Furniture

From Disco Ball-Inspired Lamps to Teatime Egg Chairs

— April 10, 2014 — Art & Design
These pieces of retro furniture are a complete throwback to times gone by. The designs range in decade, from 60s-inspired seating to 80s video game lighting.

The Scotch Club Lighting Collection takes its inspiration from disco balls, as each light cover looks like something from a 60s dance party. The overall design doesn't sparkle like the old disco balls, but if you threw some glass over the top they could easily be transformed. Other pieces of retro furniture include old wooden luggage compartments that have been transformed into modern tables. The best part about retro furniture is how stylish it looks now. Whether you're a hipster or just have a serious love for aged tables, these pieces are perfect for celebrating past creations.
