This is a view of the lobby in an apartment house by the developers of the apartment building below. Note to the young designers participating in the Fifties Revival going on now: I remember the Fifties — they sucked. They were The Man In The Gray Flannel Suit, Gentleman's Agreement, What Makes Sammy Run, Ozzie and Harriett and Donald O'Connor. Why would anyone want to go there?
You can download RealPlayer clips from the real 1950s here.

I don't know. Looks kinda sleek and cool. Not everything from the 1950s was bad. It certainly beats the bad design of the late 60s, 79s, and 80s. :)

Yes, it looks slick. It also looks like a set from Down With Love and makes me feel like all the men are going to act like Ewan McGregor in the movie and all the women like Renee Zellweger -- and that's a bad thing.
