Last Saturday, after going to the Freight House Farmer’s Market in downtown Davenport, Iowa, on the banks of the Mississippi River, I was returning to my car with a load of fresh veggies and other goodies when an interesting historic building caught my eye. I walked across the street and made my first visit to River Bend Retro.
River Bend Retro is an adventure for retro furniture, accessory connoisseurs, and casual collectors as well as for those who are inquisitive about the style, fashion and design of the recent past. Walking into the store, I was immediately engaged with the vignettes of delightfully unique and well crafted home furnishings.
While looking at the lines of the decor available I found several things that could be incorporated into an eclectic style of home. Why not add a starburst clock with a more traditional sofa? Be creative!
River Bend Retro has Danish Modern, Mid-Century Modern, vintage record albums, home accessories, clothing, and art. With a well stocked show room and a friendly staff, I think that you will want to return again and again.
