I was absolutely taken back in time with the set of retro furniture released by Barnesworth Anubis for Collabor88.
My own Uncle George, the mecca of style and culture from my childhood, owned almost EXACTLY this furniture.
He’d designed and built a house, with a proper formal double parlour. One half of the room was southwestern, with lots of amazing things from his trips to Mexico displayed all over. The other half though, was this amazing post modern blue and white SQUARE funiture.
Paired with bleached blonde wood (allegedly from Sweden) he even had a blonde piano in that half of the room. The furniture was leather, but felt like glossy plastic. As though someone had made furniture out of patent leather shoes, yet it was in fact true leather. He polished it every week with a special product he had shipped in from somewhere.
This wasn’t lounging furniture. This was sitting up properly and visiting after dinner furniture. Or receiving guests furniture. Or listening to the piano being played furniture.
The animals WERE NOT allowed on the furniture.
I suppose that accounts for my small rebellion above. I hope he forgives me.
So because of Barnesworth Anubis, I had a stroll down memory lane. It made me a little teary and a little happy. I wish I had that damn furniture now.
