Dining Rooms Go Retro-Style

Dining room styles have come and gone – many more going than sticking around. The ones that have made it to a timeless status are super cool to see in the retro arena. This is especially the case when different styles are mixed and matched to look better than they originally did. Then there’s the trick of adding brand newer with vintage. Another way to get spaces to jump are to reclaim goods that would have otherwise gone unused. Here are some great examples of retro dining room styles out of West Michigan:
