The February 10th issue of New York Magazine celebrates the publication's 40th Anniversary. In lieu of rubies, the staff presents a '68 version of the "Strategist" section, which includes a look at the late sixties apartment of art collectors on the Upper East Side (featuring Frank Stella's Protractor, above) and a shopping list for the home design aficionado of 1968...

Read about the apartment above in Welcome to Our Stella. Below, are the home furnishings from the 1968 Shopping Guide...

Joe Colombo's Coupé 1158 lamp shade.

Bell's Trimline phone. We had one of these growing up! (I think my parents still have it!)

Alexander Girard's "Checker Split" fabric.

Ettore Sottsass' "Nefertiti" desk.

Peter Ghyczy's Garden Egg Chair.

Curtis Jere's laurel leaf mirror.

The newest shape from CorningWare!

Check out ALL the products highlighted from 1968 in the Shopping Guide.
