In a totally unexpected discovery, furniture designer and creator Nathan Chandler found and purchased a home that had been locked up and sealed since 1956, keeping its mid-century American interior in spectacular shape. Although the house has since been sold, the retro interior design of this kitchen gives us a look at a time long gone.
It’s not clear why the original owners closed and sealed it for so long, but I’m glad they did, because the interior kitchen décor elements are absolutely stunning. From the pastel pink counters to the original owner manuals still attached to the unused GE appliances, every detail seems straight out of a 1950s American family sitcom.
The fate of this dated kitchen is uncertain, but I’m glad to have had a peek into such a miraculously-preserved historic space!
