Yes, this must be why America fought for independence – the right to select your own furniture, no matter how hideous. The freedom to purchase a recliner that needs only 1 1/2″ of wall space to recline. The chance to own a loveseat made of DuPont Zepel and “authentic wood accents” in a “pretty patchwork print”. Pretty dizzying, I would say. (And what would IN-authentic wood be?) Remember, early Americans made early American furniture possible, although not that avocado shag carpet.
On the previous page, the choices are more contemporary but only a tad bit less eye-straining. Here, the furniture looks like Jackson Pollack's dropcloths with a bit of disco mixed in. Made of “plush printed velvet” — and “plumped with foam”, like that's a really cool thing. Wards called it a “tie-dying” look, although tie-dying was actually a 1960s fad.
Still, in the right antique mall today, this could catch someone's eye.
Once trend-setting, now retro.
