In the late 1970's my wife and I and two small children lived in a crowded Tokyo apartment. We needed an extra clothes cabinet so we bought the first one we found. It consisted of a metal frame covered with nylon on which was printed a garish pattern of coffee beans and garbled Italian and English text. Over the years the design became a family joke and we remember that item fondly long after the original has gone. Here is a recreation of the pattern- the original typography was much better but this gives the general effect. The Italian is either misremembered or was supposed to have been Pranzo In Cucina - lunch in the Kitchen. Hence the kitch designation. Anybody seen such a design anywhere?
