August 16, 2010Mid-Century Colonial. Did You Say Colonial?
By Sablemable aka Jan
Yep, I did say Colonial! I got to thinking the other night that there were Colonial flavored homes built during the mid-century and the owners decorated with-what else? Colonial!
Here’s a Colonial style ranch home circa 1964.
The floor plan and description.
Now for the furniture! I bought some catalogs from Ebay of the old Forslund Furniture Store in Grand Rapids, Michigan who specialized in Early American/Colonial. Of course.
I wish I could show you more furniture, which is fantastic, but I like showing you stuff in color and the catalog didn’t have enough color pictures.
I had never visited this particular furniture store, but I understand that the furniture was of top quality.
Tell me what you think about MCM-Colonial homes and furniture. Have you ever been to Forslund Furniture before it closed or do you have any furniture from them? Dying to know, gang!
