I was leafing through my copy of The House Book by Terence Conran (1974) and came across this stylish setting and thought to myself "they picked that Olympia because it matched the color scheme" (even their stationary of choice is yellow to match the accent color!)
So I went through the book and found all the identifiable instances of typewriters in their various settings. I think this Hermes (or is it an Empire?) wasn't chosen to match the color scheme.

What's a stylish room without an Olivetti? Putty looks pretty good here.

And for this second Olivetti, did they pick it because it matched the table and chair? Or did they paint their furniture to match their typewriter? Part of my hopes it's the latter.
