Open House: Do You Know Anyone Living in a Design Time Capsule?

The New York Times article Living in a Design Time Capsule discusses those homes "that have gone untouched for decades and give visitors the sensation of being in a décor-warp." I've seen many of these in my day, including those of several friends and family members. One Su Casa member even shared photos of her parents' plastic slipcovered sofa with me.

Naturally, these design time capsule dwellers tend to be from an older generation; I recently visited an estate sale of a woman's home that was straight up 1955 — olive green sofa and all. But it's not unusual for people to be living with their parents' hand-me-downs, or 50- or 60-year-olds still living with the décor from their days as bright young things.
Do you know anyone living in such a design time capsule? Are you? Your parents? What's the worst décor-warp you've seen? Have you seen any untouched homes that somehow still look relevant and à la mode? Tell me by commenting below!
