    Very groovy indeed. Does the sofa convert into a bed at the push of a button?

    It certainly should. I like about half of what's in the room, I think this is a good signpost to where it all went terribly wrong in the 70's.

    I was pretty lucky to get a peek at an artist's home, here in Miami, a few years ago via the estate sale. A pretty chi-chi company was hired since he had great mcm furniture and well, his art. Anyway, there was a huge conversation pit anchored by a closet wall with movable doors featuring one of his paintings. It was pretty cool to be able to recreate the work by changing their positions. Sadly, I recently discovered that the house has been torn down. No idea if the doors/painting was salvaged by the family :(

    I'll bet you and I are liking the same half of the room, Sandi. The 70s were a decadent time indeed.

    Strange days indeed

    There recently was an article in the NY Times about houses frozen in time, going back through the decades. 50's and 60's houses, lovely and filled with amazing pieces. 70's house, just what you'd expect, macrame and bathtubs in the middle of the bedroom, mylar wallpaper and the Brady Bunch color palette. 80's house, I shudder to even think about. Design by Patrick Bateman or Scarface.

    I love this image, though I can't tell if it's real or a model. This group is right up my alley.
  • Sandi Vincent 6y

    Ha, does kind of have that dollhouse look, but no, this is a real interior or at least it's presented as one.
