Inspiration: Vintage Molecular Models

062909molecule-01.jpgIf we're being honest, our least favorite subject in high school was chemistry--but we can't help loving the look of these vintage molecular models. We first spotted them at our friend Jeremy's pad when we snapped pics for his house tour...

We love the assortment of colors that are usually found with these particular vintage sets--Seafoam green, robin's egg blue and yellow to name a few. Timeless yet fun, they work great as a coffee table centerpiece or on a well-edited bookshelf. Plus, you can alter the pieces to make any shape or configuration you'd like. After a bit of research, we found vintage molecule sets on eBay that range from $50 to upwards of $200. Or, you're on a tight budget, this print of a colorful molecule grouping has a similar vintage vibe.
