Yup, you read it right. Los Angeles-based furniture maker Thrive sells Elvis-era 1950’s style retro furniture online named after  American  Presidents.  I understand the Nixon Collection and Eisenhower and Kennedy atomic-era references,  but Grover Cleveland 293521_10152438421100492_447369581_nas a mid-century modern design muse?

Millard Fillmore, $1,899


Eisenhower Chair, $899


Kennedy Rocker, $949

space-age and flamboyant piece of all.  Everything is handmade in L.A. and ships curbside/lobby side for free, $300 if you want it  actually schlepped into your house or apartment.

Taking a page from Zappo’s 365 day free  shipping return policy, Thrive gives you  a year to decide if you love  your Grover or Tricky Dick pieces.

The company only sells online, offers many upholstery choices and you can preview fabric swatches for free by snail mail. Production time is 3 weeks.
