The 70s were the loudest, tackiest, most fun decade ever.

I'll take that sharp-looking folding card table and chairs set they're calling a dining table. Great for family board games and the kids' holiday table, and I know it's better quality than that crap folding set I bought 5 years ago...

I'm a weird-o, I thought it was all pretty cool sans the green stuff.

The green, green and more green made me laugh because I've got a green marbled look on my living room walls, and a lighter green in my dining room and kitchen... hee hee, that's me!

73% #14 The Egg Chair with speakers would be pretty cool if it was upgraded to wireless smart speakers (also more embedded speakers) so you could stream YouTube, Netflix or your music in surround. Imagine dragging that out on the porch in nice weather! Also you could watch your big screen tv from across the room with only the chairs speakers on making it a bit less noisy for others. I do remember seeing photos of the egg chair when I was a little kid without income thinking it was the coolest thing in the world. I still love it and would own it if it was available. Of course I would attempt the upgrades I spoke about. ;D

I love the egg chair!! Out of all of the choices, that's the one I would buy now if it weren't ridiculously expensive.

in the 80s (in my 20s) i had a bar like the one in #6. loved it. as a teen i had a chair kinda similar to #11, loved that too. i still love a good recliner like in #15 but that color GOT TO GO. i had dogs & cats so blow up furniture would not have been practical, but have owned my share of bean bag chairs....my fave one was a blue fuzzy one that a boyfriend had given me.

The lounger In #9 was my favorite. They had some around my college campus back in the late 70s early 80s. Does anybody have more information or a better picture of it? The 1st or 3rd ones. I’ve been looking for one for years with no luck.

13% similar...yeah, I’d probably use all of it. xD I love retro-style. And I miss my beautiful neon-lime inflatable chair and pillows (one with a goldfish print) so much. ;;
