Retro Furniture 13 Jan 2010

When does old furniture become fashionable again?

Christmas is over, the new year has begun and for many of us, it’s the time we take a fresh look at the homes around us. Should we give them a lick of paint, repair the broken bits or change tired old furnishings? Well, if as you look around your home, it’s still full of furniture from the 60s, 70s and 80s, you'll be delighted to hear that it's all back in fashion. To discuss what's particularly collectible, and why we seem to love retro furniture so much, Jenni is joined by Judith Miller of the Antiques Roadshow and Miller's Price Guides and by Christine Lalumia of the Geffrye Museum.
