I think all our readers of Guiaparadecorar.com they will already know the term retro but let's do things right, and start on page 1 of the book. However applied our dear students ...
When we open our dictionary by the page of the "R" we will find the word: retro- : Prefix from l. retro, backward; Previous time: retrotraer.
Therefore, retro will be that of yesteryear, of the past, of other times ... and in our case, any furniture that was used in the time of our parents - for our younger readers or in the times of when we were children, for those most veteran readers.

Take advantage and get rid of it! . Not everyone knows how to appreciate the retro style ... but your pockets will …
