Baker, Sarah 2010. Retro Style, Class and the Home The Making and Unmaking of Value. PhD Thesis University of East London School of Arts and Digital Industries
Retro furniture, decorative objects and interiors have become highly desirable in recent years. This thesis explores the making and unmaking of the value of domestic retro style in an ethnographic study of retail spaces, the media and the home. It considers what retro means and why it is valued; who is involved in its production and consumption; and how it manifests itself in the domestic interior.
