In a strange and unexpected discovery, furniture designer and creator Nathan Chandler found and bought a home that had remained sealed since 1956, keeping its 60s style interior perfectly intact. Though the house has recently been sold, the interior design of this vintage kitchen provided us with a look at a time long gone.

It’s not clear why the original owners of the home kept the kitchen design unchanged for so long, but we’re glad they did because the interior décor elements and the vintage furniture are absolutely perfect. From the pastel pink counters to the manuals still attached to the unused GE home appliances, every kitchen decor detail here is straight out of a 1950s American family sitcom.

The fate of this period room design is uncertain, but we’re glad to have had a look into such a strangely-preserved historic space!
