Raise your hand if you can still remember the CorningWare your mom used when you were young (and still owns to this day). Yep — same here. I can also remember the exact shade of shag carpeting in my grandpa’s living room, the way the plastic would squeak on my great-aunt’s sofas, and the faded, 1980s-style mugs my dad used to sip coffee out of.
But I’m sure I’m not alone. Our collective love of all things nostalgia is real. It’s also why vintage-inspired decor is coming back these days in a big way. From ’50s-style toasters to old school mini-fridges, here are 15 products that will turn your kitchen into a retro haven.
1. Retro Compact Fridge

2. Retro-Style 2-Slice Toaster
This ain’t your grandma’s toaster — but it sure looks like it! This retro-styled gadget from Smeg has six browning levels, three pre-set options, a removable crumb tray, and even anti-slip feet.
3. Kitchen Step Stool
I don’t care what decade you were born in — this chair will bring you back to your childhood. Whether your mom had it, or your grandma, or your Great Aunt Edna, you definitely climbed it to the very tippy-top as a kid.
4. Kit-Cat Wall Clock
They just don’t make ’em like they used to, do they? Believe it or not, this classic design has been around since 1932. (And yes, the cat’s eyes and tail still move back and forth in that slightly creepy way you remember.)
