"In that yawning gap between the antique and the new, there is something else. Some call it vintage, some retro, but whatever the name the concept is the same - the objects and furniture that are not quite old and not quite new, but are always original and unique. Modern Retro looks at this fascinating area of design and decoration. The arrangement of rooms - where to put what - has always been a vital part of successful interior decoration, and it is even more important when it comes to creating an interior that is a mixture of the expected and the completely unexpected. It is an art and it requires a real skill, for there has to be respect for every object trouve, as well as an understanding of how each element will work best. Modern Retro shows how to combine, how to edit and how to put the unlikely and the unusual together in a sympathetic way. Inspiration and ideas occupy every page of this absorbing book."--provided from

Looking back, the 1950s to 70s were not a great age for interior design in the average home. But then the average home didn't feature Eames chairs and other pieces now recognized as classics. Clifton-Mogg has gathered the best examples of using retro pieces to enhance 21st century living spaces. Rustic Retro - stunning!
