With this decor designed for a retro-futuristic entertaining room from 1970, the designers chose a mix of three vervy, verdant greens — parrot, mint and forest — all in solids, with nary a pattern in sight.
A fresh minty green paint glossed the accordion wall in an entertaining room, while a darker green leveled up the ceiling.
The colors and shapes of the furniture used for this futuristic mod living room decor were fabulously vintage, in the space-age style so popular in the late 60s and early 70s.
There were enameled white wooden cabinets — a pedestal credenza, an end table, and a commode on casters — with shiny green molded plastic fronts.
Two retro-futuristic tech toys took their place in this model home: an Electrohome “Space Bubble” portable stereo, spun aluminum base and smoked plastic top, and the Bell System Picturephone and 12-button Touch-Tone telephone by AT&T.
The sculptured chair in the foreground was made of a single piece of white molded plastic, while the three armchairs nestled together along the back wall had polished aluminum legs and were upholstered in wet-look vinyl.
The funky curved sculptures over the three chairs were actually concave lamps with a polished mirror-chrome inner surface to reflect light, made by artist Gregory Beylerian.
All furniture was from the “Chapter One” collection by Broyhill at Abraham & Straus, and the soft low-pile white carpet, called “Velour,” was made of Kodel by World Carpets.
