Bonnie Cashin is the Mother of American Sportswear.

A modern-day icon, defined as a modernist and an artist, Bonnie Cashin (ca. 1908-2000) became a critically acclaimed and commercially successful American fashion designer.

Her influence in the world of fashion and furniture art is significant.

Creating ready-to-wear clothing.

She worked for numerous private design studios and designed for around 50 companies including Internationally famous Hermès and American Airlines.

Bonnie Cashin spent the late 1920s and 1930s designing dance costumes for showgirls.

In the 1940s she created film costumes for Twentieth Century-Fox.

By the Mid-Century, she was creating ready-to-wear clothing.

Fashion is aligned to modern designer furniture.

In 1951 Bonnie Cashin explained to an audience her fashions designs were aligned to modern furniture designs and modern architecture.

Special recognition went to modern designers; Frank Lloyd Wright, Mies van der Rohe, Charles and Ray Eames and Le Corbusier.

All of these great visionaries have created a lasting dynasty in modern designer furniture.

Bonnie Cashin understood the unique sympathetic relationship between modern designer furniture, architecture and fashion.

Clothes are our first environment and our home is our second environment.

In the 1960,s Bonnie Cashin was showing her fashion in modern designer furniture settings.

A new and innovative style of fashion shows.

She created ‘Home Settings’ furnished with Mid-Century Contemporary and Modernist Furniture to show her latest fashion designs.

Of her legacy she wrote, “This is my century…how nice, for one voice to ignite the imagination of others.”

What makes the AERO5 reclining office chair very comfortable?

Reclining office chairs all have a problem.

Too much recline and you tip back

Too little recline and you are falling forward.

So where is the optimum point of recline?

1

How did The AERO5 Office Chair achieve the perfect optimum reclining position?

A collaboration of engineers and designers working between drawings and prototypes took the chair to the 95% optimum comfort level in the reclining position.

Tinkering took the chair the other 5%.

A project like this always involves a certain amount of pushing and pulling.

Retro Europe knows what it takes to develop something very special that pushes the boundaries a little bit further.

How do you know if the design and manufacture have produced the best reclining office chair?

Try the AERO5 Office Chair.

Recline back and you will know instantly that the AERO5 Office Chair has the optimum reclining position.

Perfectly balanced and stable at the full reclining position.

The AERO5 is a winner.

The designers of the AERO5 Office chair have created something very special.

2

The AERO5 Office Chair also addressed all the challenges of producing a chair that is needed to satisfy the multiple practical and emotional needs of every office worker.

The designers at Retro Europe discovered how difficult the problem was when they were asked to design a brand-new very comfortable reclining office chair.

Designing comfortable reclining office chairs involves engineers and designers.

The perfect office chair has to fulfil all the basic needs of an office worker;

Adjustable seat height controls.

360-degree swivel movement.

Comfort and the correct support.

Remain cool for the full 8-hour working day.

Universal wheels to glide across any surface.

The office chair must have a lock and reclining option.

The AERO5 Office Chair has fulfilled all these basic requirements of an office worker and so much more.

Retro Europe produced the AERO5 Office Chair that is visually and structurally different.

One of the biggies with office workers is the problem of sweat and body odour.

Not pleasant.

The AERO5 office Chair was designed with a full mesh back to ensure a cool and comfortable seat all day long.

3

AERO5 has an exciting, sharp and clean design. It is a marriage of design and engineering.

AERO5 Office Chairs fulfil all the working functions of office workers but how does it rank on an aesthetic scale?

It is evident that the designers at Retro Europe have given a great deal of time to create a piece of office chair art.

The results are self-evident.

The AERO5 Office Chair is beautiful to look at, beautiful to relax on, and beautiful to own.

And is available in several colours to brighten your working day.

Equally suitable for Home Offices or Commercial Offices.

The-History-of-Interior-Modern-Designer-Styles,-their-benefits,-their-pitfalls-and-their-price

Are you thinking of redecorating and re furnishing your home or office environment, and do you need some inspiration?

Here is some advice on modern design styles that I am very confident will enhance your home and your wellbeing, and also stop you from ruining your home

My guide to the good and bad Interior Modern Design Styles.

Mid-Century Modern Designer Furniture

The mid-1900s was a period when the most iconic pieces of modern designer furniture were created.

Mid Century Designer Furniture is famous for the design styles of refined lines, minimalism, and natural shapes.

Possibly the most influential modern designers of all time are from the mid-century era. Saarinen, Niemeyer, Eames, Noguchi, Jacobsen. Talented designers who created mid-century modern design styles with their unique use of molded plastic, plywood, and aluminum.

Furniture that was to be functional, versatile in a multitude of shapes and colours flowed from the designer’s drawing board to the manufacturing factory floor, and finally into modern homes of great taste and beauty.

For my recommended shopping stores I will point you toward interpretations of mid-century design styles at retroeurope.com, as an example of high-quality affordable furniture, and the products found at DWR and Design Public are also excellent mid-century modern exemplars, albeit very highly priced.

The-History-of-Interior-Modern-Designer-Styles,-their-benefits,-their-pitfalls-and-their-price_04

Industrial Designer Furniture

The Industrial Design Styles can be traced back to the turn-of-the-century industrial era. Instantly recognisable by the wide-ranging use of exposed steel with distressed wooden elements, suitable for homes or commercial environments with an exposed interior brick work.

Industrial designer furniture is often likened to Rustic Designer Furniture.

Industrial Decor and Design has never reached the same levels of demand as Modernist, Mid-Century or Contemporary Designer Furniture because Industrial Designer Furniture is only truly at home with the interior decor of an Industrial styled home or business.

Reformed warehouses, attics, and commercial buildings lend their aesthetic to Industrial Designer Furniture.

Find Industrial Furniture at Restoration City Stores and other high-end restoration specialist shops.

Scandinavian Designer Furniture

Scandi Furniture is an extension of mid-century modern designer furniture.

Scandinavian Scandi designer furniture is characterised by its minimalist style. ”Scandi” is the real rising star in the popularity stakes for modern designer furniture buyers.

One word of advice, many people confuse Scandinavian Scandi Furniture with IKEA.

IKEA, thankfully is a design style of its own [and this is not a recommendation or complement] and is nothing whatsoever like the wonderful essence of real quality designer Scandinavian Scandi Furniture.

Scandi Modern Designer Furniture is an artist palette of subtle vibrant colours, with that unique design quality of balancing different styles of furniture construction. Scandinavian Scandi Furniture is often described as a blend of contemporary minimalism with a hint of solid Industrial functional design.

Spiers Sofa Blue Scandi Style

The truth is Scandi Furniture is a classic design without comparison, beautiful and with a subtle design style of its own.

To find this functional, clean-lined designer furniture for your home or business there is only one place to go. I must with all honesty and sincerity direct you to the truly wonderful Scandinavian Modern Designer Scandi Furniture Collection at www.retroeurope.com that is the market leader and represents great value, high-quality and great design.

Urban Modern

Urban Modern Interior Designer Furniture originated from low-cost city loft living in major cities.

Cheap loft living very quickly elevated itself to a cult styled and exclusive cosmopolitan club environment.

Urban Modern Designer Furniture suddenly became the new vogue and described itself as a fusion of various styles, Minimalist Modern, Glamorous Chic, and on the edge experimental designs, all colliding in an arty-farty distinctively over materialistic 21st-century setting.

In reality, the best description of Urban Modern Furniture is ‘when good taste, functionality and common sense leave the room Urban Modern enters with huge sofas and daybeds that look bad and are extremely uncomfortable.’

Worse was yet to come with the Urban Modern Furniture scattered cushion seating. (and I use the word seating with some hesitation, do not say you were not warned, you can look forward to an evening of absolute agony sitting on a scattered cushion).

The-History-of-Interior-Modern-Designer-Styles,-their-benefits,-their-pitfalls-and-their-price_03

I am reminded of an editorial on modern designer furniture by someone who obviously did not write his opinions whilst sitting on a scattered cushion. The editorial described Urban Decor as trailblazing modern furniture designs that are an example of artistic and creative expression – in reality, they are an example of a sore back and a numb derriere in my opinion.

In the interest of good posture, I will not make any recommendations as to where to buy this style of furniture.

Shabby Chic

WOW !! Who does not love Shabby Chic Decor?

Anyone with an eye for style, good taste and I might add a clean and fragrant demeanor.

Because the majority of Shabby Chic Furniture is found in roadside waste collecting skips or flea markets where the main hobby of the great unwashed seems to be to congregate in dirty cold alley markets spouting complete nonsense about how creative they are with some white undercoat paint and a knife.

Shabby Chic is sold as the aged vintage elements of a flea market.

The truth is that it is damaged, woodworm infested wrecks of furniture that are given the once over by out of work Estate Agent type looking to find another fool with more money than sense.

When furniture is described as having an ”affected feel in an unorthodox style”, start running and keep running holding very tightly onto your money.

In the interest of good taste, I will not make any recommendations as to where to buy this style of furniture.

Modernist Modern Designer Furniture

So we can return to, and as this is the last, finish on some of the most desirable furniture ever created for discerning lovers of modern designer furniture.

Modernist Designer Furniture refers to designer furniture produced in the early 19th century, characterised by features that personify simplicity, geometry, and functionality in polished metal, wood and leather in its design.

Le Corbusier, who is the father of modern designer furniture and the most talented and innovative designer of all time is the master of Modernist Modern Designer Furniture.

Le Corbusier stated that a home was a “machine for living in”, and his designer furniture was the functional furniture required to furnish it.

Which is advertising speak for ” Le Corbusier designed a range of systemised tubular-steel furniture, reflecting his own desire for aesthetic purity and industrial rationale, this timeless classic style is what is now known as the International Style.”

Le Corbusier’s breathtaking design style is best portrayed by the LC2 Collection. A steel frame encapsulating a cubic sofa with loose cushioning.

The-History-of-Interior-Modern-Designer-Styles,-their-benefits,-their-pitfalls-and-their-price_02

There lies my only one criticism of Le Corbusier, the horrendous price of the LC2 furniture designed by the great Le Corbusier. Sadly he is now he is dead and he has no control over this situation.

The powerful corporations that own the great works of Le Corbusier and in particular the LC2, now sell his designer styles of furniture under license at unrealistic and exorbitantly high prices.

Today a classic piece of Le Corbusier furniture is only bought by the extremely wealthy

A Le Corbusier 3 -seat LC2 Sofa is 10,000 Euros. Yes 10,000 euros.

So it is no wonder there are some very dodgy copies on the market.

However, there are some alternative choices on the market in the style of the master. Le Corbusier-esque modern designer furniture has found its way onto the modern designer online furniture market with high-quality interpretations of Le Corbusier’s work.

Reputable companies such as BlueSunTree and Retro Europe offer affordable Le Corbusier-esque modernist designer furniture that is worth buying.

This is a self-opinionated report on the classic designer eras and the designers of popular interior design styles!

I trust it was helpful in getting you started on your refurbishing project.

However, do remember that the best interior architects will frequently bridge different styles, and for every great designer piece of furniture, there is an overpriced, oversold worthless piece of…….. well you get my drift.

So be sensible, be brave and liberate your mind and approach your own design philosophy from creative angles and above all have fun.

Let me know what you think.

Some years ago there was a designer furniture shop in London I loved to visit. It was owned by a very famous International Furniture Company selling the original designs from two of the greatest modern furniture designers of all time.

Le Corbusier and Charles Eames.

In addition to the works of Le Corbusier and Charles Eames, I saw the works of furniture art from Ludwig van der Rohe, Florence Knoll, and Eero Aarnio at this London store.

Rohe, Knoll, and Aarnio

The Barcelona Chair and Barcelona Daybed from Rohe, The Knoll Geometric styled sofa and the Ball Chair from Aarnio, were unforgettable wonders of spectacular beauty and great design.

Reality Check….‘It’s how much?’

Last week after an absence of many years, and as I am now in a position to buy one or two designer furniture pieces, I returned to London and I ventured into this shop again.

It is now a high-end Designer Furniture boutique style shop selling the same great designer named furniture that I loved and longed for as a young man.

I made my way to the Le Corbusier stand, and I was shocked at the £10,000 price tag for the LC2 Sofa.

Slightly bucked at the price the salesperson must have been reading my mind…..Pretentious, overpriced and uncomfortable….. and advised me ”Most people say they buy from our shops because of the quality of the produce and reassurance about its provenance”.

My disappointment evaporated my boyhood memories.

I do wonder how many of us are being taken for a ride by their pricing proliferation. The designer furniture from Eames, Le Corbusier, and a number of equally notable designers from these oh-so-fashionable stores are shocking and totally beyond the budget of an average household.

Le Corbusier and his fellow designers created furniture for the masses, not only for the incredibly wealthy.

What was once a great design has it now got out of hand?

I started to recover from the price shock and once again enjoyed the absolute iconic design style, but something was wrong.

The Le Corbusier LC2 is very small and uncomfortable.

Something was very wrong. The LC2 sofa is small and uncomfortable.

My boyhood dreams were completely shattered now. Obviously returning to the store as a man I am bigger and these sofas were not made for the 21st Century Man.

Designed almost 100 years ago the small LC2 has loose cushions placed on a steel frame supported with elasticated straps.

My average bulk was forced to sit across 2 cushion seats.

The LC2 3-seat sofa only accommodates 2 people, and the result is I found myself sitting across 2 cushions. The edge of the cushion starting disappearing between the gaps and then straight through the supporting straps.

To my embarrassment, I needed help to rise from the seat to get back to my feet.

I made a hasty departure.

My faith in great Designer Furniture is restored.

Discussing my disappointments and embarrassments with a colleague I was advised to look for an alternative Designer Furniture Store online.

As a result of my online search, I found a number of designer furniture stores.

Retro Europe - Modern Designer Retro Furniture

Retroeurope.com offered a Reinvented, Affordable, Great Design brand of designer sofas and designer chairs, and it soon became clear they were experiencing a boom in sales due to their pricing policy.

Cutting out the middleman and avoiding those iniquitous prices.

Retro Europe could afford to offer quality designer furniture at affordable prices by selling direct to the consumer online. They were cutting out the middleman and avoiding those iniquitous prices that the London Store imposed on their clients.

It was a win-win situation for buyer and seller.

And though they were not originals the design was crisp and stunning as any I’ve ever seen.

This was an online modern designer furniture shop in its purest form, completely unpretentious, affordable and with extremely comfortable furniture manufactured using the traditional furniture makers methods.

Le Bauhaus 3 Seater Sofa - Pearl Grey

There is no doubting the popularity of designer furniture online stores. According to the latest figures, eight out of ten of us have purchased online in the past 12 months, with nearly all are intending to continue buying online in the future.

Have online designer furniture shops like Retro Europe replaced the Bricks And Mortar High Shops?

High Street Stores are closing and it is very sad.

Only the established and big corporations may survive. Online stores offer you the opportunity to view and buy from the comfort of your home and at much lower prices.

I don’t want to be too hard on high-profile shops like the store I visited in London selling the original furniture from Le Corbusier and Eames because it was their influence that introduced me to Modernist, Mid Century and Contemporary Designer Furniture which in some ways has been a wonderful experience.

The London Store is actually helping to encourage the boom in Online Designer Furniture Stores.

The terrible prices they charge are encouraging the move for discerning clients to go to retro furniture online stores.

We no longer have to pay so much, but it is not only the price but the pretentiousness that forces us to online stores. I liken my visit to this London Store to being fleeced at the races, and in future, I will be advising designer furniture buyers to head for Retro Europe instead.

Only other day I accidentally found myself in one of these new up and coming hipster cafe bars and asked about the identity of the disgusting bar stools.

”You are sitting on an art deco designer style stool, that costs £300” was the reply.

Obviously, we should celebrate the success of Retro Europe the home of designer furniture in Europe.

Don’t get me wrong, there are many online retro furniture stores, but I have a personal experience with Retro Europe.

For the past year, I have lived back in London, and I have purchased every piece of furniture from Retro Europe required to re-furnish every room of my new apartment.

I wanted to escape all that metropolitan trendiness and go back to the simpler modernist and minimalism quality furniture world, where the design and function are important.

I want to look at my furniture and love the design.

I want to use my furniture and enjoy and appreciate the comfort of the furniture.

My first purchase was a full-size Bauhaus Sofa from Retro Europe for 999.00, very much in Corbusier-esque design period, but one-tenth of the London Store price, and much bigger and extremely comfortable.

Conclusion; When your instincts are screaming ‘Pretentious, overpriced and uncomfortable’ run.

I suspect most of you know I’m right.

A great many of these London Designer Furniture Stores are now the most massive rip-off.

We’d all be better off at Retro Europe.

The-Secrets-of-Retro-Europe-Revealed

We looked into the meteoric success of European Online seller of modern designer furniture Retro Europe to discover;

1. How does Retro Europe manage to offer Great Design, Quality, Modern Designer Furniture at Affordable Prices?

2. How do they manage to offer a 7-day delivery promise to 44 Countries in Europe?

We can reveal the secrets of European Online Retro Furniture Market giant Retro Europe, and how their sales have continued to increase year on year for 10 consecutive years.

By offering products that are higher quality rather than more choices is the most obvious answer to their success, and by restricting the options to the top-selling models means there is never any dead stock, making the company super efficient.

These savings by Retro Europe go directly to their buyers and have made this online furniture store the popular go to online retro furniture supplier in Europe for discerning buyers to save money without sacrificing quality.

”Offering superior quality products designed by our in-house team of designers, instead of a large range of choices is the secret of our success, why have 12 different colours when 95% of your sales are for black or white sofas?” a spokesman for Retro Europe said.

Adding ”Although packaging and delivery costs have increased incrementally over the past 5 years, by responsible negotiation and loyalty to our couriers we have managed to stay ahead of our competitors in maintaining a fair and reasonable delivery package’.

This low-cost retro furniture online retail outlet, Retro Europe, has been steadily growing in the market, with their Reinvented, Great Design, Affordable designer furniture Brand. Ten years ago there were around 20 top selling Brands in Europe, now this figure has fallen to less than 10 in Europe.

Smaller online furniture stores have closed due to the recession, and others have failed due to not updating their product lines with new designer furniture styles.

It is clear for the successful few that there are great opportunities for online modern designer furniture stores such as Retro Europe.

1975-trading-since

Does it mean we are better than most Retro Furniture Suppliers?
We believe it does, and it also means we are more than likely to be here for another 40 plus years.

Our latest exclusive new brand ‘Reinvented, Affordable, Great Design’ Furniture Collections may seem a little too good to be true, but it is not.

Our promise to you is to supply affordable great designer retro furniture.
And that promise is at the very heart of everything we are trying to achieve at Retro Europe with our quality affordable modern designer furniture.

How Is Great Design Possible?

Yes, it is possible.

Especially when you know the secret to great design.

The in-house design team at Retro Europe follow very closely the views from H.C. Dieter Rams, a German designer associated with the Functionalist School of Industrial Design. His exciting brave approach and relentless self-belief in “less but better” design has influenced the creation of modern designer furniture from Retro Europe.

We believe the aesthetic quality of a product and its functional appeal is integral to its success.
And beautiful furniture that is used every day has an effect on people and their well-being.
But only furniture fulfilling a purpose every day can be beautiful, loved, and perfect.

Retro Europe avoids being in vogue, and so we are never antiquated. Unlike a five-minute fashionable trend, our design style lasts for a lifetime, even though we live in a throwaway culture.

It costs no more to design with attention to detail.

And these savings go straight to you….and do not forget our 7-day delivery service
