I want to be hip. Modern hip. But I have a hard time really warming up to the return of Mid Century Modern. We had those cool modern chairs with the wooden arms when I was growing up. Similar to this one:
And the sofa with the sleek straight lines. Very nice looking and very modern. But all that straight furniture was not so easy to curl up on as a child. Seems like everything was plastic or straight or flat. Lots of plastic in the 50's.
I also remember furniture with plastic covers. We didn't have the plastic covers at our house, but I remember sitting on them at someone else's house with shorts on and the plastic sticking to my legs when I got up.
I was amazed to find these listed in a funky catalog, and then found a Detroit company on line that actually makes custom fitted plastic slipcovers, like the ones I stuck to as a child.
I did make some plastic covers for a very nice lady. They were for her vintage beauty-shop chairs though, not her living room furniture. THAT I will never do. Sorry.
