Sock Hop

Sock Hop

Mid-Century Modern

Taken from a 1936 modern house outside Boston, this vivid turquoise enlivens a lattice room divider added in 1955. The divider color carries through to the kitchen cabinets. This turquoise is a signature color used both inside and outside the mid-century modern house. Historic New England has in its permanent collection a set of 1957 enameled metal kitchen cabinets in the same turquoise, complete with a chartreuse laminate countertop. Sock hop was a term that was used for American high school dances that took place during the 1950s. The name was derived from the dance attendees wearing only socks while they danced, so they wouldn't scratch the gymnasium floor.
