1987 Living Room

on Sun Jan 27 2019, 01:50
Who had a living room like this 30 years ago? Deep pile carpets, Brick Gas fire, Scaletrix, Awful curtains and setee to match, Buddah on fireplace, cups on the floor, magazines for the eyes.  It might look awful and obviously staged but at least nobody is anti-socially glued to the unheard of  mobile telephone and  internet?



It's from a Bryant Homes brochure I just found. . BH have gone bust.

The telly has a modern plastic surround. I think ours was still contained in wood 30 yrs ago. Very Happy

That living room is horrible and in my opinion it is like that song it's "Out of Time" because for a start Scalectrix, were out of the 1960's that fireplace is more 1970's the telly is in wrong place, the whole thing just looks wrong.

Take away the flashy curtains and the box tv and it looks just like a living room today!
