Anne & Gary have a lovely house in Oregon and updating it in true retro renovator style! They have a blog — now on the blogroll — and did a post on their dinette find recently. I love it! While, the popular chrome-edged ‘diner’ style tables and chairs are really great, there’s also lots of room in our decorating arsenal for the more elegant styled dinettes like Anne & Gary’s “Virtue Brothers” model.
Separately, I’d been on the watch for more dinette alternatives, and found this great 1953 ad for Arvins. This set was designed by Raymond Loewy — one of the most influential industrial designer of the era.
Along with Saarinen tulip tables – it’s great that there are a variety of possibilities for our kitchens and dinettes!
Thanks, Anne & Gary, for sharing! And, I’ll be doing more posts on your house moving forward, as you have a lot of interesting things going on!
