ARCADIA, Wis. — Ashley Furniture HomeStore has launched design-focused boards on social media website Pinterest to “showcase images that celebrate its fans’ interests and inspire their lives,” the company said.

The Top 100 network of corporate owned and licensed stores will be pinning images that highlight everything from ways to use color to decorating styles, aiming to inspire “customers and anyone else who shares an enthusiasm for home design,” Ashley said in a release.

Users who visit the new Ashley pinboards can comment, “like” and “repin” items to their own pinboards.
“Pinterest is a popular social media site – a virtual pinboard – that allows people to collect and share images on the Web, including home decor, design and lifestyle ideas,” said HomeStore Vice President of Merchandising Kris Woodcock.

“We’re excited to join this online community because it’s yet another avenue for us to share with others our passion for beautiful furniture and home decor.”

Of course, this was long before there were terms like man cave. But the fact is, this book has much of the same basic advice designers are touting today, because these are the universal rules that help regular people create the interiors they really want. (And funnily enough, it seems like everyone wants to live in a 1956-excuse me, Midcentury-interior again, but perhaps without the firearms.)
