A Look At A 1970s Arno Appliances Catalog

Arno is a Brazilian home appliance manufacturer; I believe they're still in business today. I found the following catalog scans on Flickr (credited to a user named Gugue) and thought it would be fun to simply share them here. Actually, I think the last four images are from another catalog of a series of the company's ads. I just loved the colors and the designs of these household gadgets whereas everything in our modern home is usually black, white, or stainless steel unless you own a Kitchenaid mixer.

There's really not much else to say, so enjoy!

OK, I love the fans. The colored blades make them look like flowers.


  1. Say Pam, this has nothing to do with the topic at hand, but I know you're as big of a Christopher Walken fan as I am, and I just ran across this video of him dancing to "Come and Get Your Love" by the band Redbone.
    I'd provide a link, but I don't know how to do that, and anyway, it's easy to find on Youtube.
    Absolutely fantastic, it made me grin from ear to ear.

    1. Thanks for sharing the grin, M.P. Someone took the Fat Boy Slim video and swapped out "Come and Get Your Love" for "Weapon of Choice" there. There is also a video of him dancing from a movie and someone set it to George Harrison's "I've Got My Mind Set On You." It works quite well.
