Alright Already...




By public demand, here are some pictures (unapologetically stolen from Ronn's website) of our new-old sofa. It's early 1950s, and in the best color god put on this Earth - pink. Go ahead, bask in it's loveliness. It will look glorious next to my brand-new-old heywood wakefield china cabinet. Which will of course, be full of Pyrex.

This is almost the exact cabinet, only mine is more of a teak.

Thank you George W. !

I L*O*V*E it!! Very cool. I have been really into that old "sculpted" upholstery fabric lately. In the last couple of months I've bought two big chairs and two footstools. Do you know if that fabric has a name? Great cabinet too!

Hi Mama,

Ronn here. I like to call that color of Herculon fabric "strawberry chocolate malt". Herculon was indeed strong and long lasting. The only major threat to it is cats. They seem attracted to its claw-snagging characteristic. Be forewarned you feline owners.

What a groovy sofa - that is the greatest sofa color ever!

I indulge my love of the retro and vintage through collecting old cookbooks, household guides and advertisements, over at Kitchen Retro
