Streamlined Design and Fabulously Retro Style
We owe a lot to the fabulous 1940s and 1950s. The era that brought us streamlined, futuristic design and fabulously retro style also introduced "Googie" decor. Its rocket-ship angles and whimsical details were found in everything from automotive design to roadside signage -- to of course, home interiors. In the spirit of this beloved aesthetic, we've pulled together metal signs, starburst-emblazoned housewares, and space-age plastic furniture pieces we're dying to put in our homes. So help us look to the past as we celebrate the future, and watch your space take off.
Featured Collection
"I see furnishings firstly as geometry - as squares, cubes, drums, triangles, and rectangles, which also happen to be sofas, chairs, tables, lamps, and paintings."
- John Saladino
