Gallery: Retro Modern Gives Mid-Century Furniture a Recycled Makeover


Why purchase a brand new piece of furniture, when your grandmother’s old mid-century sideboard can undergo the ultimate makeover and be recycled into a masterpiece ready to last another 50 years? The Australia-based modernist furniture restorers at Retro Modern source and restore worn mid-century sideboards, buffets and tables, and recreate them into stylish and functional pieces with a cool modern-day twist. Svelte black and brightly-coloured laminates replace old sliding doors, drawer fronts and table tops, whilst retaining the pieces’ classic modern aesthetic. Family heirlooms can remain in your home too – a custom design service allows you to make your own selection from a range of laminates and handles, bringing your once tired and battered family treasure back to a functional and funky new life.

    This furniture looks very familiar, brings back many memories and emotions, just like all good furniture should.
