    I, too, am interested in the floor lamp. This looks identical to the one I grew up with.

This little dog strikes a confident pose in a midcentury modern Palm Springs, California, living room. It’s filled with classic pieces such as this Milo Baughman sectional from the 1970s. Designer: maison21

Add orange — in moderation. This clean, white and determinedly contemporary room has been given a throwback flavor chiefly by the bold streak of orange that is the fireplace and chimney. The arc-style floor lamp echoes the period theme, as does the sectional sofa — which would create an entirely different effect in predictable brown corduroy. This scheme, however, is an exercise in restraint — quite unlike the original 1970s.

The freestanding Malm Lancer fireplace. We had this in mustard yellow in the '70s. What I wouldn't give for one now.

Retro. Revive a retro style by adding a quintessential fireplace to take you back in time. The cherry-red color of this one says vintage like nothing else. I had a similar one in my childhood home. Tip: Use the hue of the fireplace as an accent color and complement it with pillows, candles or rugs.Browse freestanding fireplaces in Products

The orange fireplace signifies warmth and becomes the focal point of the room. Blue and citrus accents are perfect complements.

A bright orange Malm Lancer fireplace brightens up the mood in this '70s-inspired living room in Palm Springs. Malm Lancer fireplaces were first first produced in the 1960s in Sonoma County, California. This style gained popularity in the '70s and still looks fresh today.

Remember that if it's your furniture, it's your call. This sectional probably looks like a big, inviting marshmallow bed to a dog. It's up to you to let the dog's guardian know if you're not comfortable with having dogs on the furniture or rugs. Although pet hairs would lift off easily from the cowhide rug in the picture above, dog urine stains are an entirely different issue. Best to roll up the rug until the dog leaves if you're not willing to risk cleaning up after an accident.Browse hundreds of cowhide rug photos

I would have thought a cowhide would be one of the last choices for floor treatments in a house with pets. To my surprise, the cowhide in my house is one of the most practical decisions I have ever made. Its texture naturally repels dog and cat hair. This interior takes full advantage of the cowhide's beauty and durability.

This all-white room has a homey, eclectic feel because of the colorful accessories. A mishmash of vintage stuff just looks better in a white room.

A few inches extra depth on your sectional can make all the difference. Here you can curl up your feet with ease, and low back cushions help tilt you farther in repose.

That's an awfully big couch for just one little dog.

Bubblegum Bursts: The bold colors in this white room have so much flavor in small bursts throughout the room.

Becky Harris added this to Desert ModernAug 7, 2010

The comfy oversized sectional, the bright orange woodstove and the endless glass is great example of current day desert modern style.

I really like the fireplace in this room. In terms of design, I like how the room is pretty bare-bones which allows you to put basically anything you want inside.
