Star Liv­ing’s JOYCELYN CHEE points to the store’s Jot­ter­goods col­lec­tion, in col­lab­o­ra­tion with lo­cal de­signer Jerry Low, as strong retro-in­spired ex­am­ples of fur­ni­ture. For ex­am­ple, the Jour­nal bed pays homage to the Asian bed of the 1960s, and in­cludes built-in stor­age in its head­board. Then there’s the task ta­ble, rem­i­nis­cent of an in­dus­trial desk, with slim draw­ers on both sides.

“When you’re think­ing of us­ing retro fur­ni­ture at home, ac­ces­sories such as wall fea­tures, vin­tage or­na­ments and brightly coloured fur­ni­ture can also play a huge part in bring­ing out the look. Sim­ple washed back­grounds also com­ple­ment the retro style,” she ad­vises.

Avail­able in both queen and king size, the bed is made in Amer­i­can black wal­nut. The wide-span solid wood top and draw­er­front of this task ta­ble are fab­ri­cated in Amer­i­can black wal­nut, and mounted on a steel frame­work.

This chair in an­tique olive with painted iron legs is a sim­ple way to add a retro feel to a desk or din­ing ta­ble; $79.
