Now that the vibrant colours and bold shapes of mid-century design are more popular than ever, Retro Revival offers a privileged glimpse into fabulous retro-inspired homes around the world.
Our passion for retro style shows no signs of fading. From the cerebral elegance of mid-century modern and the spare simplicity of Scandinavian retro design to the flamboyant opulence of the 1970s, retro interiors still exert enormous appeal.
In this glorious book, Andrew Weaving visits 17 inspiring and varied homes around the globe that showcase the Retro Revival style. Furniture by Charles and Ray Eames, Arne Jacobsen and Le Corbusier mingles with textiles by Lucienne Day, lighting by Isamu Noguchi and ceramics by Russel Wright and Constance Spry. Take a tour of a minimalist loft in London and enjoy the colourful, playful chic of Palm Beach in the 1960s as you explore the many facets of a look that ranges from sophisticated glamour to pared-down elegance.
