Retro Rooms: Robert Ahlskog

Robert1

Yes, it's the return of the Retro Rooms feature - and first up in our re-launched segment is Robert Ahlskog from Vaasa, Finland.

According to Robert: 'My interest in retro started one year ago, when I bought a copy of the ball chair by Eero Arnio. Then I got the idea of making an retro corner in our living room. Now, one year later almost the whole living room is in retro style'.

'The Ball Chair, Artichoke lamp, Le Klint lamps and the floor lamp by Poul Henningsen are all 'inspired by'. That's the great thing with the internet...you can order everything online, even here in the cold north. The table in the living room is made from two wall shelves and the chic white and black wallpaper is from wallpaperfromthe70s.com. The Double Bubble table lamp by Aarnio is one of his recent designs, but I think it looks so retro.'

Big thanks to Robert and if you want your room featured, fire over some images and a few words, we'll make your room famous! See over for more images.

How wonderful! Makes me think of a stylish Austin Powers pad, fantastic! I haven't uploaded my retro living photos as yet but I have turned my 3 bed semi into an old school French furniture boudoir! I just love old style mirrors and furniture and have a variety of themed rooms including a silver furniture room and also an ornate mirrors themed room! Will upload some photos soon!
