Furniture: Foreign Color Variations

European (German?) issue furniture. Notice the couch print. Lol

Red and white bedroom set, from France I believe. 

From Germany the desk is yellow, the strange yellow piece on the right is the cart that came with the dining room set which had orange translucent table top and china hutch doors. Notice the 70's sofa pattern. 

I think this is just repainted, but still very cool and I approve. 

Though a bit hard to see, here is a PINK 1978 VETTE PINK 1982 COTTAGE and a PINK 1980 DREAM POOL.

This is the German issue dining room, I truly wish it was an alternate color in America, as I feel as it has passed the test of time for good Mod design that still looks cool today. The only exception the the chair fabric, while authentic to the 70's, is kind of hideous today. I suppose if you had a machine that heated/cut and shaped plastic or lucite pieces, you could fabricate the translucent pieces in any color you wanted to.

  1. It's been a while since I visited, love all the new stuff! :)

    1. Welcome Back! Thanks, I only wish I could right click on Ebay for better photos like I used to be able to do.

  2. Hi thanks for showing my pic ... I'm BobinNY! I had never seen this set until a German collector on BFC posted his childhood sets, a few years back (early 2005 maybe) and I had to have it. Years later on ebay I found various minty sets, all reasonably priced!I am missing a funky lamp and plant for the LR.

    Did you know there is also a blue version of that strange cart thing!

  3. Hi Bobby! I hope you dont mind me using them, so looked so great, and are so rare, I had to show them to my readers. =-) I have seen the blue version, it may be on a very early post on here. The blue living room was from italy if I remember correctly.
