Bring Retro to Your Workspace

Trends repeat.

The average amount of time it takes for a certain style to make a comeback is around 20 to 30 years. Researchers think that trends repeat because of generational changes, as well as designers taking inspiration from styles their parents wore.

Right now, trends popular in the 1980s and 1990s are once again in style with changes to make them more appealing to contemporary consumers.

Why are so many people embracing the retro trend?

The Element of Nostalgia

Everything retro is having a resurgence from fashion, to vinyls, to film cameras.

We all tend to feel a little nostalgic when we think about the decades we grew up in, but we also feel a sense of nostalgia for times we didn’t live in. This is because we want to experience these time periods that have so much history.

There is something novel about setting a vinyl on a retro turntable or using a typewriter. The sound quality might be lacking, but it adds to the overall ambiance and experience.

Timeless Design

Not only do retro items give a sense of nostalgia, but they are also timeless and are often higher quality.

Vintage clothing, for example, is built to last and can endure the changing tides of fashion trends. Products, 20 to 30 years ago, were made with premium craftsmanship to ensure they last a lifetime, with stronger material and a timeless style. Therefore, they have a much smaller environmental footprint and can easily be incorporated into today’s looks.

In a society that revolves around ever-changing trends, it’s a relief to own pieces that you know can withstand time.

Enhanced Self-Expression

Sometimes we like to express our individuality by the clothes we put on our backs or the things we own. It helps us define who we are and who we want to be.

Whether it’s by wearing vintage clothes or having retro pieces around the house, retro is an easy way to enhance your self-expression and add flare.
