(Apologies for the delayed answer this time around - this post got bumped out a day due to the busy contest posting schedule.) So, y'all think this is the Seventies (well the large majority of you anyway)...
(Click here to guess first - then jump below for the answer)
...and you are 100% right on the money. From a 1970's Roche Bobois catalog, this photo has clues to the era (the fern, the electronics) but enough timeless pieces to make it "just possible" that it could be a later decade. The Seventies won the vote with 166, followed by the sixties with 74 and the eighties with 54. NOW got a pretty decent number of votes, 38, with the nineties (10 votes), fifties (7) and forties (1) trailing far behind. Here is what some of the commenters had to say: I vote 70's aka the era of the giant boston fern. - Peacelily I voted 70's, but after I realized you can choose Now, I think thats a good possibility too. So many styles are coming back that its so hard to tell!!-Kristineve I can't tell if those are reel-cassette boxes, 8-tracks or DVDs along with the books in the wall unit. I'm sticking to '70s just because those pod-shapes scream SLEEPERS.-Elizabeth II 1976. Europe. Maybe germany? The phono-equipment is from Braun. The Couch could be quatrokonzept...? The white furniture could be hülsta...? - Andreas I. If this room is anything other than "Now", I would say it has aged pretty well. - Deepa As always, thanks to all who played along!
