There's just something about retro furniture that I love. I think it's the whole nostalgic factor -- sipping lemonade in a chair that reminds me of those that used to grace my grandmother's patio takes me back to a simpler time.
I know a lot of you guys enjoy throwbacks as well, so check out these retro-inspired outdoor pieces that will make your patio look like it's straight out of 1970.
I am in love with this seagreen double glider from Torrans ($257) -- if it wasn't for the fact that it's brand-new, I'd swear it was the same glider that sat on my grandmother's back patio.
I love the detailing on this steel glider from Grandin Road ($149). And how pretty is that blue? I'm not a fan that dingy yellow color on the Garden Treasure Retro Chair from Lowe's ($40), but then again, you can't have retro without it.
This Formosa Swoon Tray Table from CB2 ($50) can be used inside (TV dinners!) or outside thanks to the waterproof lacquer, and folds up for easy storage. This red table from Walmart ($487) reminds me of those tables that used to be in the mall food court.
Do you like any of these outdoor pieces? Are you a fan of retro design?
