Bookmarked: JC Penny Catalogue

We're not sure where this came from but it ended up in our inbox--pages from a 1970's JC Penny Catalogue. Mint green carpet for the toilet, wine barrel dining room set, it's all so kitsch it's hard to believe that there was a time when this appealed to the masses.

Bookmarked, is an opportunity for ATLA and our readers to revisit some of the triumphs, follies and ideas from decor publications and books from the past. If you've got a great decor photo/image or design idea from an out-of-print source, please send it to la(at)apartmenttherapy(dot)com, including the title and publication information.

So what say you, is it kitsch enough to be cool again? Is there any merit to this design or should it stay squarely in the seventies, to be filed under: Never Again.
