The epitome of modern styling and affluence was the matching
furniture set. Bedroom sets, dining room sets, and living room sets
roared into popularity.
These sets were typically designed with a modern, sleek look, and constructed with lighter, brighter materials like blonde woods.The pieces were very streamlined and without ornate decorations or embellishments.Smooth surfaces were in, textured or decorated surfaces were out.
It was quite common for newlywed couples to make a matching bedroom set their first big purchase. A typical set included two twin beds, one or two night tables, and a matching dresser with or without a mirror.The total effect was to create a bedroom that was modern, sleek, and well suited to the advancements of the modern world.
