Mad Men Inspired Retro Cordless Phone from VTech

May 22, 2012

As handsome as a rotary phone, but modernly styled and teched-out for today’s uses. Do you have a landline phone?  My mom and family still do, but their cordless phones are anything but retro chic and stylish. The LS6195 by VTech is energy star certified—it doesn’t use a lot of power, neither does it take up a lot of room.

The sleek black and white phone will work perfectly for us as a buzzer phone when people call us from the apartment building door. I found the sound came through crystal clear.
