I have wondered why in the world anyone would like it…As a fifty something adult, I grew up surrounded with this style and thought it ugly and old…BUT now it pulls at my heartstrings and conjures feelings of nostalgia. It takes me back to a time when life was much simpler and I associate it with the stories of my grandparents and of my own youth.
Whether you like it or not, society has decided that the lines, shapes, colors, textures, and forms are simply artistic and this retro atomic style is not going anywhere soon. The parents of boomers brought it in and they are leaving it behind for the rest of the world at affordable rates so it is quite practical and easy to find. Also, with the popularity of IKEA and other MCM affordable knockoffs, it is reinvented with the colors and fabrics of today. There are no reasons to sit on an itchy MCM couch of yesteryear.
It is forecasted by designers that it is the IT style for 201-2020 and possibly beyond. So, channel your inner Jetson and get on board..
