Back in the 50s and 60s, conversation pits were all the rage. If you watched the TV show MadMen or other retro favorites, you might have seen people luxuriating in plush, sunken pits, sipping cocktails, laughing and chatting away.

While gone from the housing scene for years, the conversation pit is back as a popular design trend. It’s a casual way to get friends and family away from the TV or smart phone, and to actually talk with each other in a spot that’s comfortable and fun. According to this article from, while the sunken pit is classic, digging a hole in your home may not be feasible. If that’s the case, you can create a conversation area with furniture, color, and possibly a retro shag rug. The trick is to achieve an comfort and closeness that fosters casual chats and conversations. Awesome Inventions offers a look at over-the-top indoor and outdoor conversation pits.
