1970's Flowery Sitting Room

Details of each item

SOFA, CHAIR, OTTOMAN, END TABLE AND COFFEE TABLE: Archetypal items featuring the fashionable low-slung, squared-off styling, and sharply-tapered legs so popular during the 1950's-1970's. This high-quality, matching suite is upholstered in a fashionable geometric print and sports handmade velvet scatter cushions. A handmade lamp and a small stack of books sit on the end table; on the coffee table, there are three white ceramic mugs and three plates of chocolate roulade. All the furniture was made by Arco, a Hong Kong-based division of Mattel, during the mid-century years. Difficult of find now, these are wonderfully evocative of the era.

BOOKCASE: A chic, nicely-made bookcase, constructed either by an incredibly talented craftsperson or possibly factory made (although there are no manufacturer's marks). The bookcase is made from a combination of period-correct materials, from the rosewood- grained laminate to the pine drawer knobs, making it a tiny replica of the full-sized furniture produced at the time. In the shelves, the following vintage items: a lovely basket, a selection of ceramic and wooden vases, and a still life 'painting'.

LAMP: A handmade lamp with wooden base and wooden lampshade.

RUG: Hand-made from a piece of orange felt.

WALLS: Covered in retro-inspired, modern wrapping paper, which has been mounted on two A3 pieces of 5mm thick foam board. Each piece of foam board measures 42 x 29.5cm or 11 5/8 x 16 3/8in.
