Once reserved for luxury backdrops, in the sixties, it wasn’t uncommon for fine eighteenth-century furniture to be set against walls of rough countryish texture… and the mix worked surprisingly well.

In homes such as these, a combination of Victorian era furnishings that had been passed down from family members combined with midcentury styles to create a unique juxtaposition.

In this living room from 1960, rustic vintage rough-sawn planking flattered and contrasted the opulent fabrics and glittering gamut of antiques — furnishings from Chippendale and Regency to Connecticut River Valley.

Another wonderful accent for the room came from a collection of Canton china dishware that had been massed like flowers on a corner bookshelf and table.
