ODE TO 1960

Like every generation, the thirty something crowd is now choosing their grandparents furniture to furnish their homes. What was old is now new again....over and over again. You know... hip huggers, known now as low rise. Everything is now "retro". Here at HiHo we are featuring a few pieces of furniture that fit this description and by enhancing the shots to look "retro" it's hard to believe the shots were taken over the past two weeks. This orange chair is one of a pair of chairs.
This pair of amazing green chairs are getting a lot of attention in the front of the shop.
Who wouldn't love to use this ice bucket for a special occasion?
All of these classic 1960 looks are the trend in home decor right now, bright colors, clean lines and the freedom to mix it up. Two weeks ago my husband and I had the pleasure of taking our oldest daughter off to college. She had months planning the look of her dorm room. ( I'm sure that doesn't surprise anyone, the fruit doesn't fall far from the tree) This shot of her was taken in her room on her first day as a college student. Whitney is loving college life and her "retro" room. Thanks to everyone for the well wishes and encouragement on her behalf.

Whitney at Rider University in New Jersey.
