Retro phones for the home

Renovating your home can be expensive as we’ve come to realize recently. Although we’re not at a stage where we can afford just any furniture or renovation detail that we like, the thought of building a our very first home together is exciting enough.

That said, it’s always a joy to find cool home items online and in stores. While listing the appliances we needed, we realized we would probably like a home phone to make calls.

Here’s a couple of really cool phones in retro designs that would add a really nice touch to the room:

wild and wolf retro trim phone turquoise

crosley retro wall phone in red

For a more classic finish, go with chrome:

It honestly doesn’t get any cooler than this…

The cordless varieties still don’t capture the vintage / retro feel enough so I guess it’s a trade-off between practicality and aesthetics yet again. If we really had to go cordless, this is a design I’m liking the best so far:

With such cool phones, how can you not want to pick up the phone to a ring a friend!
