Circa 1971: Verner Panton & the Varna Resturant

One word wow. If I had to imagine what an Ikea catalog would have looked like back in 1971, Resturant Varna would have been a great example and Verner Paton would have been the editor-and-chief.  Known for his use of futuristic design, geometric shapes, and bold and exotic colors, Resturant Varna’s decor is an ode to 20th-century interior design. Unfortunately, this interior is no longer there and I am left only to imagine the awe I would have felt back in its heyday.
