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
2. 50's style kitchen table and chair sets complete with chrome legs,
formica table tops and vinyl covered seats in many colors.

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.

original furniture that can be revitalized with some reproduced 50's fabric.
