It’s hard to believe that diamond étagères and smoke glass swing tables were once sold for $39.99 apiece. If only I had a time machine with room for storage… Enjoy today’s video pick–a Sofa Mart commercial from 1986! Don’t be fooled by its humble intro. Things get real good real fast.
I didn’t know anyone in the ’80s who actually had a house full of chrome, brass and glass furnishings. I guess my theory that it was too cutting edge is put to rest by this regional commercial for a Fort Worth, Texas chain store. Really?! It was this easy to have a living room from the set of Less Than Zero? Even the sectional sofa above would be chic sans pattern.
As you watch the video below, take comfort in the fact that although these pieces are likely triple their original price at upscale vintage shops, a lucky trip to Goodwill could still prove fruitful. Happy Friday!
