This particular retailer does tend to have some amazing retro designs, so no surprise to see the 1960s-style Ronda furniture range at La Redoute.
In fact, this is one of the most eye-catching retro furniture ranges I’ve seen in quite some time. Yes, it’s a retro range, but it just has a little more about it than most and isn’t quite like anything else out there.
It’s just about the little touches really. Yes, this is a bunch of furniture designs with a walnut finish and on that basis, isn’t out of the ordinary.
But details like the sloping top on most of the designs, the high sides, the handles and of course, the splashes of green and blue (probably turquoise if we’re being specific) do give it the edge.
Of course, the accessories, specifically the coffee tables, are also a little different, with the patterns on the top a definite talking point and a great way of adding colour and drama to a room.
All very functional pieces of furniture too. You are looking at a sideboard, a chest of drawers, a high cabinet, that very distinctive console with its long, tapered legs, the tall chest of drawers. In addition to those furnishings you can also get a pair of round nesting tables and a further printed coffee table with a plectrum-shaped top.
All sit well as a range for a room, but these are also pieces that can add that bit of ‘wow’ on their own, as well as storage options for a room. These aren’t just pretty faces.
In terms of price, there is an official price and a discounted price. That’s because La Redoute has a discount offer running right now, with 30 per cent off all of its furniture just by using the code SAVE. So I’ll give you official price and you can take off the 30 per cent to work out the ‘real’ price.
The sideboard is £448, the chesty of drawers is £539, the cabinet is £469 (which definitely looks the best value), the console table is £249 and the tall drawer unit is £359. If you like the tables, the nesting pair is £159 and the standalone table is the cheapest item in the range at £79. All are available online right now.
