In the sixties and seventies, nothing screamed "Futurism" like plastic furniature. Think the mod, swanky interiors in A Clockwork Orange (1970) or the insides of Space Station V from 2001: A Space Odyssey (1968) and you'll see what I mean. Unquestionably, the greatest most over-the-top concatenation of ultra-modern plastic furniature ever seen on TV was in the series Space:1999, which we've refered to numerous times here in this column. Here's a fascinating little website that chronicles one woman's quest to make the inside of her home look like Moonbase Alpha. It's surprisingly cool:

Also, if you want to make your own generic Moonbase Alpha Wall Pannels (And God knows I do!), here's some info about that, too: http://www.space1999.net/~sorellarium13/moonbase-alpha-wall-panels.htm I'm not crazy about the design of the site, and it's a little on the small side, but well worth the effort and time it talkes to peruse it.
