I've just come from watching Revolutionary Road, starring the talented Kate Winslet and the equally talented (and incredibly handsome) Leonardo DiCaprio. The movie is set in the 1950's, in a quaint house, in a small town, within commuting distance of New York City. I have to admit that while I was focused on the plot, I couldn't help but notice the brilliant set design featuring some very cool mid-century decor.
A lot of furniture from the 1950's is still in use today due to its modern design sensibility and quality craftsmanship. Doesn't it look chic?
