Retro Office Furniture – A Writer’s Throwback Jersey

March 9, 2009


While this isn’t my cup of tea, I do realize there a many writers who pine for that moldy government smell – a milieu that usually accompanies vintage office furniture.   Sure, you can rummage estate sales in your local retirement communities and find no shortage of steel desks and chairs-pre-ergonomics, but why not visit Sonrisa – a retro office furniture store based out of Los Angeles?  Their online store is a virtual graveyard where office nostalgia such as typewriters, floor fans, and steel desks come to rest in hopes of finding a new home. The prices are a pocket-bender but the vital protection a steel desk provides during an 8.2 magnitude earthquake is immeasurable. I’m kidding!

I totally love this kind of furniture. The best part about it is if you go to a used furniture store the old retro stuff is the cheapest. I would not pay over $1,000 for a metal desk circa 1960! But great for Sonrisa if they can get someone to pay that much.

Great furniture provides great working environment. Though it would cost more, it guarantee's the employee's safety and longevity of the furniture itself.
