More About Retreat

Retreat is a home decor collection and lifestyle brand. We create vintage-inspired furnishings & accessories using recycled, reclaimed, and restyled materials.

Retreat style is an escape from ordinary decorating. Welcome to our REvolution!

Retreat style is a lifestyle - relaxed, comfortable, welcoming, restorative.

Retreat style is design - useful, innovative, inspired products and environments.

Retreat style is a philosophy - be creative, be imaginative, and be responsible. reduce, reuse, restyle, remake, redesign, recreate what you have & what you find. make your own statement, and make an impact in the process.

Retreat style inspiration is memories of places and moments that define relaxation.

Retreat is about bringing that feeling home with you...

Utilizing materials from thrifted, salvaged, reclaimed, and reused items, we reimagine, rethink, redesign, and restyle them to create furniture, accessories, gift items and home d├ęcor with vintage style and everyday usability.
We're husband and wife team Bob & Deb Kennedy, the designers and artisans behind Retreat Style. With backgrounds in home building, furniture manufacturing, retail store design, speaking & writing, and as previous owners of a retail home decor boutique, we bring a vast scope of experience to our business. Our design sense is driven by the principles of 'reduce, reuse, recycle, recreate, redecorate' that we have lived daily throughout our 30 years together. By incorporating these resourceful practices into the daily operations, design, and manufacturing of our business & products, we make a difference in our world and yours.

Our products range from one of a kind furniture and decor accessory creations to a developing line of reproduced pieces - designed to consistently replicate some of our most popular one of a kind furniture designs.
