How Well Do You Know Your Design Decades?

These days, for good reason, it's trendy to mix styles and eras when decorating our homes. It's not unusual to see an antique coffee table next to a mid-century chair below a contemporary chandelier — and often when you do, it looks flawless. And as you'd see in fashion, or really any industry, designers are looking to the past for inspiration. So, sometimes it's hard to tell a 1950s chair from a 2008 one. But I'm sure many of you can't be fooled when it comes to history of design. See how well you know your design timeline when you take this quiz!

1/5. It was all modern stuff, except for the wallpaper. How about some Dorothy Draper or some Art Deco?

Well, I only got one right. But so many designs are being revisited these days, I guessed modern-day too often. Fun quiz, though!
