Whether it's a family heirloom given to you as a gift, a mirror you picked up at a flea market or a photo from Apartment Therapy House Tour, furniture and accents still making an appearance can stir some lovely childhood memories. The chairs featured in the photo were the same ones we had at our kitchen table in the 80s. Seeing them in photos or at a flea market every now and then offers happy feelings of my childhood (reminding us of other childhood gems - plastic charm necklaces, Silver City Pink lipstick, a Le Clic camera, The Muppets collector glasses from McDonalds, Print Shop and more). We are hoping to own a set of these for ourselves one day, integrating them into our design style and connecting to our childhood a little bit.
