Shag Carpet source?

I'm looking for a source for good quality shag carpeting to do the inside of my 76 van. I've had this thing for 20 years and it was a custom orange and green job in the past. Now I'm restoring it and want to go with an 1976 Bicentennial Evel Knievel theme so I'm looking for good quality dense red an...

Visiting Chicago. Suggestions appreciated

I'll be spending next weekend in Chicago and will have a car rental. I'm curious about any great MCM neighborhoods to drive through, cool shops or other neat things like Superdawg.

Any advice is greatly welcomed.

Thanks in advance!

Malm Fireplaces

I apologize if this is the wrong borad for this topic. I looked all over the forum and was quite surprised not to find a single mention of Malm fireplaces. I hope that I didn't over look anything. Please feel free to move this thread if I did. I want to install a gas powered Malm Zircon fireplace in...

I'd love to find these, but I'm afraid they're real deal vintage and not repros so my chances of finding one is minuscule. I'd be happy with just some info on them or suggestions on where to find something similar. I want a mailbox with a real warm MCM feel and all that I'm finding are very sterile ...

I apologize for not posting the actual pics, but it's just not working for me. I searched the site and this seems like the best thread to use.

What exactly is happening in that courtyard area? What does that railing across the front of the shingled area do? I see that it looks like there is a walkway around the side, but could the rest of it be done away with, and the courtyard all becomes one level? If so, then I would consider actually ...

Hey, thanks, y'all. I really do appreciate all the input. I've been mainly lurking here for quite sometime and I see that most members really only give well thought out opinions, so that's why I was curious about what y'all would suggest. I've never had a house that needed to be painted before, so o...

Opinions on exterior paint, please

This is a rather unique 1961 that my husband I recently purchased. It's a very cool place inside, high ceilings, flowing layout and several other touches that gave it enough of an MCM vibe for me. I'm looking for suggestions on how to paint/decorate the outside. Currently the primary color of the ho...

I came across this website thorugh Craig's List here in Atlanta. This store/website sellls what appear to be nice quality repros of all the MCM classic pieces, however, the prices just seem to good to be true. I'm willing to take a fraction in reduced quality to spend a fraction of what these pieces...

Retro Flooring

Hi, I'm new here. My husband a I just bought a 1961 MCM in ATL. This place is amazingly cool, but, sadly, it's been "updated" several times over the years. We are working on taking it back to it's original glory bit by bit. Right now I'm trying to track down some cool laminate/vinyl/linole...
