6 Questions About Retro Style

The name Diivaniparadiis or Sofa Paradise seems to indicate an exclusive dedication to sofas, but despite its name, Diivaniparadiis, provides stylish furnishings for every room in your house, from sofas, beds and mattresses to cabinets, drawers, dining tables and even garden furniture. Its selection also includes, for example, trendy retro items.

1. Where to start if you’re looking to open your home to trendy retro vibes

There are no rules to follow if you want to decorate your home in the retro or vintage style. You don’t have to worry about not being able to match retro-style furniture with other styles. You can easily combine your current furniture items with new elements. After all, that’s what makes every home interesting and unique. The heart of every home is definitely the sofa, where the whole family can spend time together. The retro sofas available in Diivaniparadiis’ product selection are very distinctive and airy and will most certainly help kick off your redecorating efforts by opening up the room and adding freshness. The characteristics of retro furniture are clean lines, use of wood and cheerful colours.

2. What kind of details give a home the feeling of a particular era?

The main elements that give your home the feeling of a particular era are the tones, patterns and details associated with that era. If we consider the characteristics of the mid-20th century, the Golden Age of retro style, we can see a great deal of round shapes and simple lines with diamonds and polygons dominating the visuals. Retro style isn’t afraid of colour, and dull grey tones are replaced by bright and cheerful colours. Even a single bright element will drastically change the overall impression of the entire room and will redefine it together with the tones, patterns and details already in the room.

3. Does your retro furniture also make use of traditional and natural materials and the production technology used for original items from the era?

The overall material selection for Diivaniparadiis’ products is natural. The main constituent of the furniture we offer is natural wood with some metal added to particular products. The furniture industry also makes increasing use of chipboard made of reprocessed wood. It’s durable and very susceptible to finishing. Diivaniparadiis’ retro furniture range is very light. That is something every lady of the house can surely appreciate because this means less effort is needed when moving furniture around in order to clean the house. At the same time, it is also very durable. It is made of solid wood, after all. The cover materials are made of synthetic fibres to ensure maximum durability and to increase the operating life of the products. But colour options stay true to the era in question.

4. Which decades and styles does your product selection include?

Our purpose at Diivaniparadiis is to help create unique and comfortable homes. We are the No. 1 choice on the market of home furniture for consumers who appreciate personality and quality. We offer retro- and vintage-style furniture, modern design, romantic styles and timeless classics. Our clients are the principal decision-makers when it comes to our product selection, and we aim to provide our clients with what they prefer. This means that retro style is currently gaining impressive momentum in our selection.

5. Would it be sufficient to acquire one sofa or cabinet, i.e. one element, or should I make use of the entire product selection?

he retro furniture available in Diivaniparadiis’ product selection will fit perfectly into any era and with any other furniture style. Therefore it’s fine if you choose to start with just one element to add a retro vibe to the room and freshen up the entire house. But be warned, because once you make room for one retro product or detail in your house, you can count on others finding their way there as well, and in the end, the entire room or household will consist of stylish retro furniture that will look anything but outdated!

6. Should I decorate the living room and the dining room in one style? Do you have anything for the bedroom?

Open-concept kitchen and living room areas are a rather common layout solution, and this assumes a similar style from the living room through to the kitchen side. Retro-style dining tables and chairs are airy and even fit into small apartments to help bring more space into the room. I believe that every person should decorate their home and rooms just as they see fit. The furniture selection available to us today is so beautiful and versatile that I don’t want to limit or set rules for the way people should decorate their home or how they should imagine it. The only obligation that Diivaniparadiis has is to make that beautiful furniture available to our clients and to fulfil all their expectations from product quality to best prices.
