The industrial look is in full gear, making it easier to find and buy vintage retro office décor
A McDowell Craig steel tanker has an elegant blue semi-gloss powder coat finish. Sounds like we’re discussing cars, but we’re talking about a desk that qualifies as retro office décor. The steel desk is built like a tank and meant to last. REHAB Vintage Interiors specializes in retro desks and office furnishings. The industrial style is perfect for home too, whether it’s slipping a piece in here and there or decorating an entire room. I checked out that snazzy red Domore chair pulled up to the desk. It is a 1980’s version of a 30’s design and a rare find, so it was snapped up quickly. But there is always plenty to choose from as the Los Angeles store takes pride in restoring the mid-century steel pieces.
REHAB usually has a variety of vintage letters — metal, enamel, aluminum and porcelain, even neon channel. People like to use those as wall art and with good reason. These 1960’s porcelain enamel letters were a lucky find and their white color gives them a universal appeal. The store also carries steel basket gym lockers, bouclé wire baskets, vintage maps and globes — including sharp looking silver ocean globes.
They also restore vintage lighting. Plus there’s a vintage lighting inventory that includes pendant, desk, floor and table lamps. I love the bell-shaped shades and interesting shape of this 1950’s chrome pair. Anyone in the L.A. area, be sure to stop and browse. Until then, shopping online or calling with a specific need may be fruitful. Many items can be color customized and it never hurts to get a jump start on an item just as it’s listed online.
