Retro Rooms: Tony Strange

Tony1

After a brief detour to Finland, our Retro Rooms feature is back in the UK - London to be precise, for the room of Tony Strange.

Tony says he has a 'retro house' rather than a retro room, but we're just being let in on the living room for now. Plenty of space age design packing the place - and we're loving that round TV too.

See over for more photos and once again, if you want to show off your house or a single room, just get in touch.

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.

Retro Rooms: Luxe Interior

Orla_k_cclassic_livinglow1

This isn’t a room in a reader’s home, but an example of the interior design packages from Luxe Interior. Luxe Interior offers various packages by top designers and if your preferred style is ‘Quirky Retro’, it includes collections by Retro To Go favourites, Orla Kiely and Celia Birtwell.

Each package contains a scaleable scheme of furniture, accessories and fittings, which can be customised according to the size of your home. The Orla Kiely packages feature her signature stem print on soft furnishings and wall coverings, whilst Celia Birtwell’s includes the famous David Hockney ‘Puchinello’ clown print.

Retro Rooms: Fred de Groot

Fred3 Holland is our next stop for our Retro Rooms feature and the home of Fred de Groot.

We don't know much about Fred and his home in Sneek (yes, there is such a place), but we do know he is an avid collector of classic/vintage design - and these photos (see over onto the next page for more) are our evidence.

If you have any photos of your home, your collection or a single room, we always like to hear from you. Contact us at the address on this page with your photos and details and we will get them online as soon as we can.

Retro Rooms: Carlos Molina

Space1

I'm always amazed by how many people read Retro To Go - and how widespread everyone is. And just to prove that point, our latest retro room is provided by Carlos Molina in Buenos Aires, Argentina.

Carlos is a fan of the futuristic designs of the late 60s and early 70s and displayed here (and over the page) are some photos of his music room, which is a shrine to that era. Enjoy picking out some real design classics.

Big thanks to Carlos for sending them in. And if you want to send us some pictures, we're always happy to feature them.
