Retro-Kitchen-FurnitureSometimes, it just something simple that will bring your retro kitchen look to life. Try adding furniture pieces that will reflect the feel of the 1950’s. Kitchen table and chairs make a great addition to your retro kitchen decor.

Chrome Accents

One of the big features that makes a 1950’s look is chrome accents on the furniture. Chrome was a big part of the post-World-War-2 days. It was easy to clean, looked sleek and shiny and led the way for homemakers away from the traditional wood in furniture. This was important for those housewives. They wanted the new, modern look.

Retro Kitchen Furniture

Your kitchen table and chairs are a big part of any kitchen and add so much to the decor. With a Retro kitchen theme, that table and chair set is all about plastic, bold colors and easy cleaning.

You can chose to put something like a bistro set into a corner of your kitchen that might not otherwise be needed for appliances or cabinets. Or you can use this set in a breakfast nook. Even consider extending the look of your retro kitchen to a hall way or the edge of another room.

Imagine having a charming conversation grouping just to the kitchen side of your family room. Another way for your retro look to continue outside of your kitchen.

Consider your color scheme when you choose your furniture. You may want to coordinate, compliment or even contrast the seat covers with the rest of your color scheme.

Finding Retro Furniture

If you are lucky enough to be able to find retro furniture at yard sales and flea markets, great. But, they are hard to come by.  Now, furniture makers are creating the retro style new. So you may can buy a new set of retro furniture for your kitchen. That’s always my choice. Brand new is the way of the look in the 1950’s and that works best for my retro kitchen.

    I love adding retro furniture to the kitchen! I was able to find a table for a great price at a vintage mall but no chairs. I ended up ordering new, vintage style chairs in red and absolutely loved it!
