What does “Atomic Panther” mean?

You might be wondering why we chose the name “Atomic Panther.”

When Leah and I moved in together we both always have wanted an “Atomic” age home. The Atomic age started in 1945, but we have always liked the look of home furnishings from the mid 50’s to the early 60’s. So we discovered we wanted our 1940 cottage to replicate that feel. It is a work in progress, and we’ll keep you posted in our finds and purchases.

We both discovered that we both have an unhealthy obsession with 50’s funky lamps, especially “panther” lamps. Leah already had a cool 50’s TV lamp and I had a little ceramic panther. We both always wanted a panther lamp with a jade green venetian shade…that was our first panther lamp we got together…until our one year old daughter got her baby hands on it!!! Now we have to put all our cool lamps away.

Well there you have it, that’s how ATOMIC PANTHER was born.
