Retro love

Posted on Wed, 23 Apr 2014 by KiM

There is a part of me deep down that will always love mid-century homes decorated top to bottom in retro furnishings. Brazilian architect/designer Guilherme Torres has been featured here several times (my last post here) and often creates vibrant, modern, industrial spaces filled with colourful elements. This time he has the colourful elements in al their glory, but this time the architecture has a more mid-century vibe. Super funky.

I am in love with those turquoise chairs!

Oregonbird says:

It's the crimson lounge & ottoman that I'm lusting after! NEVER seen that before – what a shape. The vibe is very contained, and the colors feel almost curated — but the zebra rug has to go. Not for being zebra, just for being ubiquitous, ancient and uncle-ish in an otherwise hip space.

Oregonbird: that chair is a classic from the 50's, by Sergio Rodrigues. It is called the sheriff chair (in Brazil also known as "cadeira mole" or soft chair). Check it here:
