A Gorgeous Vintage 1956 Kitchen With Original GE Appliances That Has Gone Untouched for Half a Century – I am kicking myself that we didn’t go with cabinet hardware like that. Those knobs! So cool! Funnily enough, the place my dad and stepmom bought had a very retro kitchen which they’ve slowly been replacing (much to my consternation). It had a toaster and a blender BUILT INTO THE COUNTERTOP, as well as this fabulous “NuTone Transistor Intercom AM-FM Radio” in the wall.


I wish “futuristic” still meant “lots of funky buttons and knobs”. Today’s sleek button-less minimalism is sexy, but it doesn’t really make you feel like you’re living the Buck Rogers in the 25th century dream, does it?
