Only one or two of those are pure Con Trad, notably the one below. The rest are just living rooms of people who live in old homes with newer furniture. A pre-war home can't really be very Con Trad, because the furniture that occupies it can excuse its offensive mediocrity through its contextual deferment.

agreed... the source I pulled these from identified the rooms as modern/vintage

The sideways one looks more or less straight trad to me, am I missing something?

Some of these I find quite appealing in a tradcon

Most of those aren't ConTrad at all and some are not half bad.

This is the point and laugh thread, get that shit out'a here.
