Skateboards put the Fun in Furniture. Oh wait…

OK, top picture first. Garage Manufacturing, the makers of Soft Trucks, also makes a wire rack that hangs over a door and holds several boards horizontally, plus one “go-to” board vertically. Not noteworthy except I liked the picture they used in the “natural environment” setting. With those Kiss and Farrah Fawcett posters there ought to be fiberglass GT boards in that quiver intead of modern popsicles. Look closely and you can see Farrah on a skateboard.

Lastly, aside from serving as a location to shoot Bratz commercials, Skatepark franchise Skatelab has teamed up with an artist called ZAZ (never heard of him/her/it) to sell skateboard bookshelves, pictureframes and the like at Target. under the name Skatelab Furniture. I’m not sure how they talked Target into it, considering they used to sell unbranded skateboard curios. Even Pottery Barn Kids used to do it. It’s not like Skatelab has huge brand recognition outside of their two locations and Concrete Disciples. There was a “news item” about it on Kids Today, turns out Skatelab has a few other licensing deals too.

Psst! Hey kid. Wanna see a titillating picture of Farrah Fawcett?


I found this poster of Farrah Fawcett on a skateboard some time in the early 80’s. If you click to enlarge you can see it says “Rona Barrett’s Hollywood Super-Star Poster” at the top. For a super-star poster, you’d think they could have gotten a photographer who could get the whole skateboard in the frame. This came from some teenybopper or gossip magazine, but I don’t know which one. Rona Barrett was the gossip queen of 70’s Hollywood. Unbelievably, this will be only the third entry on the Interweb™ that will have the phrase “Rona Barrett’s Hollywood Super-Star Poster” intact.

    Yeah, what Jake said, and why arent the boards gripped?
    This whole thing reeks of “poserness”

  3. Why aren’t they (top boards) gripped? Fire that photo stylist! The shelves and stuff are “targeted to boys ages 6 to 15”

    It sounds like you clowns weren’t even born when this poster came out.

    Two important note…

    First, those shoes are Nike Leather Cortez, a jogging/training/fashion shoe. Unbelievably popular in 1976. If you weren’t wearing a pair you were seriously out of fashion.

    Second, that skateboard looks like every skateboard I ever saw or rode in 1976, this one has a wood bed and some of the higher-tech models used fibreglas, but grips just hadn’t been invented yet.

  12. Come on MrBill… most of us were alive then. Maybe not as old as you… but then that’s fairly unimportant.

    California Free Former is the board.

    teach those joiks to call farrah a poser. didn’t even know grip wasn’t invented yet. awww. I look at this as a statment in the 70s, and it was the thing back then, it’s not like she’s claiming to be a skater, maybe she’s just having fun with it. i hate when people call people posers and don’t know anything. they just assume to feel better bout themselves, concentrate on yourself
    rip farrah
