Mid-Century Interior Design Flashback

September 10th, 2010







The Flashback group on Flickr has one of the best collections of vintage goodies from the 50s, 60s and 70s. Some of the interiors that I found are really outstanding. Particularly the ones that look really modern—modern to today. It’s amazing how organic the design was as well.

    Beautiful selection of photos. While some of the photos feel a bit too retro for my taste, I still love the overall appeal of most of them. 4th one from the top is hot, I’d love to see a modern redo of that. I’m checking out the rest of the Flickr set now. Thanks for the link.

    I really want that bubble chair in the second photo, and the completely orange living room is strangely appealing.

    Tomorrow I will be posting a second set from that pool and then next week another great set that you guys will get a kick out of.

    I agree that some of these are far too retro for my taste, but they are still strangely appealing. Never in my life would I have a fully orange room, hah.

    I dont know which i like better, the interiors or the orange-armed work uniforms! I wish our firm had those! Think how amazing it would be to show up to a client meeting all in matching white one-pieces with one orange arm. Outstanding.
