Speed Racer

Per a suggestion from a reader, here's Speed Racer. While the interiors in this film do have furniture pieces (in wild colors), I decided to concentrate on a little drive down the street from near the beginning of the film, where every house is a looker.

The houses are slightly unfocused ('cause the action is supposed to be on the car and its riders), but you get the idea. Slant roofs and clerestories oh my.

Revolutionary Road

The living room in Revolutionary Road.

As is the case when watching most movies that are set during this time period, it becomes an incessant, "Ooh I want that," exercise. Like, ooh I want that lamp and ooh I want that sideboard (is it a sideboard? or a stereo cabinet?) and ooh I want that table and ooh I want to put four distinctly different chairs in my living room.

I wonder how those legs are attached to the glass table? Perhaps some cross-brace structure underneath?
