The styles of the 1950's are coming back and there are many products now available to "capture the past" in your home decorating.
To get you started, here is a partial list of reproduced products inspired from the 1950's.
1. Fabric by the yard including barkcloth for curtains, pillows and furniture upholstery.
2. 50's style kitchen table and chair sets complete with chrome legs, formica table tops and vinyl covered seats in many colors.
3. Small retro style kitchen appliances including, toasters and soda shop drink mixers.
4. Classic pedal cars inspired from the 1940's and 50's.
5. Stoves and refrigerators reproduced with today's technology, but with the original appearance in many original colors. These are not cheap... be prepared to pay top dollar for the large kitchen appliances.
6. Replica diner jukeboxes, turntables, pay phones and radios.
7. Reproduced metal 6-pack picnic coolers, double bubble clocks and Coke machines.
8. Tin diner, car hop and motor oil signs.
9. Reproduction enamelware canister sets, soap dishes and bread boxes.
10. Metal laundry soap bins and glass laundry sprinklers for a bit of laundry room nostalgia.
Your local second hand stores are a good source if you are in the market for original furniture that can be revitalized with some reproduced 50's fabric.
