Looking back from five decades later, the components of this mod green & white dining room seemed almost like were from a fabulously 1970s decor starter pack.
It had several retro style elements: Foil wallpaper with a trippy black, white and silver design. A brightly-colored shag carpet (think soft astroturf). A modern dinette set with a chrome base, a glass top, and four cantilevered chairs with white vinyl cushions.
Here’s how the space was described back in 1971:
What appeared to be a latticework wall in this dining ell off the living room was really just a tricky wallpaper. Its dimensional design was overprinted on a silvery foil background to simulate depth.
An emerald green low-pile shag carpet struck the only major color note in the basically all-white setting. A chrome-based, glass-topped table and marshmallow vinyl and chrome chairs underscored the airy atmosphere.
For an interesting contrast of shapes, a circular-design wall hanging was played against the crisscross pattern of the wall covering. A solid-black lucite buffet provided the anchor that kept the art from seeming to float in space.
