It’s time to rewind… and celebrate National Retro Day! Pop the vinyl on the hi-fi, slip on those saddle shoes, or send a letter with a stamp. We’re all here for yesteryear, and that means we’re putting the spotlight on home decor with retro touches. These wall sculptures and furnishings have a throwback mid-century style mixed with modern-day elegance.
To set your own retro vibe, seek out furnishings with hairpin legs, tapered feet, or rounded geometric shapes. An openwork oblong console table or a Scandinavian credenza can instantly set the mood. When it comes to the walls, you can’t go wrong with atomic-age art, a boomerang clock, or sunburst decor. Minimalist pendant lighting, mod rugs, and statement table lamps all make fun complements.

Let the Teardrop Wall Mirror Panels dazzle the area above a table while they catch the light from a pair of contemporary table lamps. Place a mirror on each side of a headboard to glitz up your bedroom, or hang several above a bench for a gleaming display that attracts the eye.

Are you looking to add some contemporary pizzazz to the area above your sofa? Take a look at the display we created with a variety of mirrored metal wall art pieces. We chose various wall accents but kept a cohesive appearance by selecting all mirrored items with golden metallic finishes. To keep the display from looking staid, we mixed round, smooth-edged wall art with sunburst-style pieces. We also varied the sizes (16” dia. up to 31” dia.) to enhance the interest of the arrangement. This type of collage will certainly be the focal point of your room, so select neutrals nearby to avoid competing decor.
