mediterranean-living-room-1976So last night I had to take Astro to the doggie emergency room.

1970s-crib-couchHe was choking and wretching and otherwise making me hysterical.

Fortunately, the wonderful vet at Pittsfield Veterinary Hospital figured out almost immediately that the boy had eaten burdocks.

1970s-patchwork-upholsteryThose are thistles, essentially, that had caught in his paw and beard.  He and I went for a long hike in Kennedy Park Saturday afternoon, so I am sure he got them there. Bad Mom. I did not even see them. They kind of blended in with his shaggy dog coat, and I am not a helicopter dog-Mom.

plaid-sofa-1976As a result, I did not get time to finish this post. I had loaded in the photos and was sitting in front of the computer about to start captioning them when all this drama started.

1976-living-room-by-kroehlerNow I am whipped. I think I will have a drink. Seriously.

1976-living-roomAren’t these 1976 sofas and loveseats and chairs and interiors from Kroehler an absolute gas? I welcome reader comments and captions expounding upon them. As all I can think about right now is Season 3 of Dexter on Netcast and a long tall cold vodka and orange juice.

    Blushing about memories of evenings spent on a crib couch……………ahem, yes Pam, the pill, sexual liberation, come on, use your imagination. I certainly wasnt sitting around looking at pictures of couches on the internet back then. : O

    Just got the new Restoration Hardware catalogue yesterday. Started thumbing through it and gasped out loud. Yes, there was a pit! It was absolutely gorgeous. You could live in that thing! Check it out!

    Looking for a sofa the style of the last photo. 70’s, wood trim and buttoned back cushions. Several years ago I inherited a 70’s orangeish almost plaid platform rocker. I love the style and have been looking for a sofa to match the skirted style. Have looked at the newer versions, but nothing comes close really. I am looking for that style. If anyone has any ideas of where I can look I’d appreciate the contact information.

    Hi Deb, I think on this one… you’re likely to have the most success sourcing vintage. Then, you may need to get the sofa upholstered…

    I have a Kroehler in excellent condition. I mean mint! I was going to have it recovered so it would finally match where ever i put it. (For once) Always sat in my bedroom coroner no one used all the years prior to me and i always draped a blanket over the back and side so no one coming into my room would mess that up so i can say for the last 31 yrs Ive cleaned it weekly and NOW I NEED TO KNOW THE VALUE AND HAVING IT RECOVERED WILL DRAG THE PRICE DOWN CORRECT?
