A touch of bygone style at The Contemporary Home

On the retro front, we have some great products this season, many of which have been retro homeware classics for decades. Our Dreyfuss phones were first designed in 1937 and make a statement of style, grace and elegance. Today’s modern version simply plugs into a standard phone socket and measures 209mm W x 120mm H x 228mm D.

Another retro homeware classic is the iconic Keep Calm and Carry On design which was originally produced by the Ministry of Information as a poster in 1939. One of our versions also incorporates an antiqued Union Jack flag and is stretched on canvas across a deep wooden frame. The dimensions are 51cm Wide x 76cm High x 3.8cm depth. We have several others either hand-printed on paper or on cotton tea towels.

If cooking is more your thing, then we have several retro homeware ideas for the kitchen too. My favourite has to be our lovely vintage feel cookie cutters in their own stylish retro tin. They are great for the baking enthusiast (such as me!) or for getting young children involved.
