Lots of open up, flip down, roll away good ideas from The Practical Encyclopedia of Good Decorating and Home Improvement, Vol 15 Pre to Shu, Greystone Press, New York. No date but I'm assuming late 60s. 18 volumes of alphabetical retro inspiration. I'd kill for a sewing space this fabulous! Need to find a cupboard and start planning.
P.S. Sorry about the quality of some of these images but that's what you get from scanning old books! And don't forget to click on the pictures to get the whole retro inspiration.
