Pit Stops

If you've seen Olivia Wilde's hot mess of a thriller "Don't Worry Darling," you know retro living rooms from the 1960s and '70s are making a comeback. Featuring crisp accent walls, colorful paisleys, and bold geometric shapes, the old-school aesthetic also calls for sunken conversation pits and vinyl record players. Though the style has largely been phased out in favor of modern minimalist decor, here are five gorgeous rentals with conversation pits where you can enjoy a cocktail or two while talking about something groovy.
