Game Watching MCM-Style

Raise your hand if sitting back, munching on salty snacks and watching the game is in the cards this season. Whether it’s taking in the home team as they’re rounding the bases and fielding line drives in baseball, jumping up and down as favorite football superstars sprint for a touchdown and tackle opponents to the ground, or any other athlete magically pushing oneself to amazing limits, the fall brings a certain nostalgia to the air in Grand Rapids, Michigan and throughout the United States.

Look to Retro Knox for nostalgic, mid-century modern furniture to help entertain company during the big games. Here are some vintage pieces that will strike up conversations:

Go for the classic comfort of a leather car seat. Some people choose leather sofas after having it in their cars. This sofa brings the best of both worlds into your living space.
