Historically, and in present day, Danish design is at the forefront in aesthetics, materials and style. 

We love how designs from the last century are as popular now as ever; and reproductions, official copies, modernised versions and inevitably scandalous rip-offs are everywhere, offering a range of prices to the consumer  who loves a particular style. 

Firm favourite Cult Furniture have a virtual and actual store bursting at the seams with modern models of incredible furniture from the last century. 

Our favourite find is the Hans J Wegner CH25 chair, with its curves and contours, it’s a beautiful edition to an interior. 

”Danish design is undoubtedly timeless and adds a touch of sophistication and charm to any space. The Hans J Wegner CH25 chair is no exception! 

Designed in 1950 by ‘the king of chairs’ Hans Wegner, reproduced by Cult Furniture for modern homes today. The CH25 chair is crafted from high-quality materials and will look great in any space. Think of a laid-back lounge, living room or timeless hotel. 

The Hans J Wegner CH25 chair features a curved wooden frame available in a variety of colours. The woven seat is available in natural or black cord.”

This Autumn see the revival of a trend which never really goes away in many homes. Modern vintage does what it says, combining old styles and past trends with modern interpretations. Vintage styles have always inspired us in the present, whether it’s mid-century furniture, 70’s glam, or 80’s modernism you can take elements and work with them in any room.

There are no rules to creating this trend, infact it’s entirely up to you what feel you would like to bring. Although when introducing vintage pieces into a room make sure you you don’t over clutter or over exhaust the look. Mix different items from different decades to create an eclectic look, but try and bring it all together with a base colour [white is always a good place to start ].

Let the furniture and soft furnishings bring the colour

The rich 70’s tones of orange, moss green, burgandy, and teal will be perfect for this time of year. Darker woods like walnut and mango will ground the room and give it more interest. Once you have some key pieces of furniture, or a statement light then start bringing in some modern touches with pattern and print on soft furnishings and art work.

Bring a retro feel with brick wallpaper

If you are looking to make a statement why not go retro with a brick effect wallpaper. Popularity has grown massively for wall or garden effect wallpapers and some are even textured to give a more realistic appearance. And don’t worry, you are not trying to kid anybody, they just look great and create a fab backdrop to a room. Check out DunelmHenderson Interiors and I Love Wallpaper

Although having original pieces from decades past is ideal [ sometimes it can be time consuming hunting them out and finding the right thing ], there is some great reproduction furniture available online now. Check out rockettstgeorge.co.ukroseandgrey.co.uk and grahamandgreen.co.uk
