movie inspiration: black belly of the tarantula

Finishing up Italian horror movie/fashion week I've got screencaps of Black Belly of the Tarantula (1971). Gorgeous interiors and furniture. Apparently it was inspired by Argento's Bird with the Crystal Plumage, which was available a few weeks ago but is gone now...

This nightgown is just the prettiest

and this necklace -

That table and chairs has indentations for the plates and silverware - so genius. I'm sure it's by a famous designer but I can't figure out who..

Love the painting and fur bedspread. And that funny cloud thing next to the bed is a lamp

"A waste of time Signora - the moustache is in."

Holy shit. I basically need everything in those screencaps in my life.
Except porno-moustache guy.

I used to collect ultramod furniture like this. Had similar lamps and a few good chairs. It's much harder to find this stuff cheap these days though
