Whether you love the retro metal arc floor lamp with the big lampshade that was popular in the 1970’s gracing everyone’s living room or you prefer the introduction of aluminum into wall and pendant fixtures of the late 1960’s – lighting was an integral part of retro furniture decor. Look to your favorite lighting manufacturers for lighting reproductions for your ceiling, walls, floor in every retro style imaginable.
Many homeowners choose furniture from the inside out, while others prefer to let the architecture of their home help decide their furniture options. This is perfect for homes that love to mimic streamlined retro furniture to counterbalance expansive windows and views. Many architects over recent eras were also furniture designers. Dig into history to find out if your favorite architectural style would complement your furniture too!
The first rule in arranging the furniture in a livingroom is to see where the wall plugs are and to avoid covering them with any furniture. If you do that it will only make things more complicated, as you will not have easy access to the outlet and you will have to use extendable ones and this way you increase the hazard risk. So avoid covering them. The second tip is to spread the furniture in an even manner all over the livingroom. Avoid placing all the furniture in one place, for example one one side of the room or near the same wall, as it will be totally asymmetric and it will give the viewer the impression of a “sinking ship”. You remember the “Titanic”.
