Restoration Hardware is one of the few sellers that does retro right, either salvaging or drawing inspiration from antique artifacts and tweaking them for the modern age. The result this time is a speaker that looks ripped from the pre-TV age.
Their Vintage Speaker, which comes in full-sized and mini versions, is inspired by radio speakers from the golden age of radio, before television put a stop to that. The Victorian design makes it look like this is a restoration, but these speakers are just replications of the past – and good ones, at that. Of course, modern conveniences are not forgotten. These speakers can connect with mobile devices over Bluetooth, and can be used as the most awesome speakerphones ever.
