This Awesome Retro Kitchen Hasn’t Been Touched Since 1962

In a totally unexpected discovery, furniture designer and creator Nathan Chandler found and purchased a home that had been locked up and sealed since 1956. The place remained literally untouched and held in an era for 54 years with the original manuals still intact. Nowadays, people pay big money to achieve the retro kitchen of their dreams and this owner just happened to stumble upon it.

Chandler has since sold the home, but not before taking some incredible retro pictures of the untouched interior…. It’s not really clear why the original owners left this house locked up for so long, but honestly who cares! This stuff is awesome!
