We have been trying not to spend too much lately, but neither Mr D or I could resist treating ourself to a fancy new 70s style trim phone in bright orange. We’ve been using our boring old rented-flat-beige-BT-phone for years, so it is very exciting to have a phone I’m actually proud to display. And look how nicely it coordinates with my vintage magazines!
I looked at a lot of retro telephones before deciding on the Trim Phone. The deciding factor was really the colour – we both wanted an orange phone, and being a 70s style the trim was the only one that came in that shade.
Retro telephones have become hugely popular lately, and there are a huge variety to choose from. Below are just some of the phones I found that are available right now (I won’t suggest any one website because you can find them in loads of places) – you can buy anything from a 1930s wood and brass style to a 1980s hamburger phone. Classic 1950s phones tend to come in colours like red, black and cream, but if you really want a bright colour you are best to look at the 70s styles like Trim Phones or Scandiphones.
