Looking decorating magazines to identify the latest trends, has caught my attention how lavish retro style furniture lately, especially those of the 70 and 80. Seats (sofas, armchairs, chairs …) are some of the elements of this style that I like, especially when they are renewed with colorful tapestries.

They are also perfect to give life to an untapped corner of the house, creating a retro decor point that contrasts with the rest of the environment.
