Revival Electric Kettle

Pt1111lb 
We are spoilt for choice when it comes to retro kettles with great designs by the likes of Alessi and Delonghi now joined by this Revival Electric Kettle by Present Time.

It has a distinctive shape (possibly 1970s style) and combines chrome with bright coloured plastic for the handle, lid and base. Whilst the shape is decidedly retro, the kettle has the best of modern convenience in being cordless.

It is available with a choice of bright blue or lime green finishes from Our Green, priced £59. If you would prefer it in red or pink, you can buy it from No Brand via Amazon, for the same price.

Mathmos Fireflow Tea-light Lava Lamp

FIREFLOW 
Mathmos Fireflow Tea-light Lava Lamp is a twist on the classic lava lamp design.

It still has the iconic rocket shape, but rather than being powered by mains or battery, the lava is heated up by a simple little tea-light. It takes about 20 minutes for the lava to warm up and get moving, but one tea-light is enough to power the lamp for 3 hours. The lamp is available with a choice of blue, pink or turquoise lava in clear liquid and costs just under £30.

Dwell’s Ericofon-like Retro Phone

Dwellscandiphone 
Since Wild and Wolf re-launched the Ericofon as the Scandiphone a few years ago, it would seem inevitable that imitations would eventually appear, such as Dwell’s take on it.

Dwell’s Retro Phone as they are simply calling it has a similar, although not identical shape to the iconic phone. Rather than being made just from plastic, this version combines bronze with plastic, which perhaps accounts for its higher price of £59.

Crosley CR92 Country Kitchen Phone

31VP8-10XnL__SL500_AA300_ 
The Crosley CR92 Country Kitchen Phone is a reproduction of an early American phone from the early 1920s.

 It features a turning crank handle, a handcrafted wood and veneer cabinet and a storage compartment. Where it differs from the original design, is that what looks like a traditional rotary dial, is actually push buttons.

It is available to buy from Amazon, priced just over $63.
