It's crazy to think that's $5,000 dollar furniture. I guess there were far fewer things for the very wealthy to spend money on and so huge ticket furniture was a thing for businesses whose model is to throw large price tags and people who don't know what money is.

That's $5,000 in 1963 dollars as well. Imagine what that would be worth today
