50's Retro kitchen table  

 

Just as it was in 1950's, the kitchen table is still today the central focal point of the kitchen, the place where we might sit with a cup of coffee and spend a few reflective moments alone and the place where we gather with friends and family to spend time with each other. Furniture from the forties and fifties is back in fashion – again - and a retro kitchen table is a great place to start. For several years now people who understand where the market is going have been buying up fiberglass draperies, bent plywood chairs, and even bright chartreuse dinnerware – unheard of even a few years ago. Wartime and post wartime designs were very modern in their design and some of the best pieces were almost like sculpture featuring very innovative looks. Furniture manufacturers in the early 40’s were force to go to alternative materials like formica, plastic and wood because of a shortage of metal, which was being used in the war effort. Small kitchen tables featuring a retro design usually incorporate both plastic and limited use of metal. Why is the retro look popular today- well for one reason many of these classic designs are relatively inexpensively to buy today. The 1950’s was also a time of relative frugality (sound familiar) so the objective of manufactures was to create pieces that were relatively inexpensive and easy to clean – mom’s back then didn’t want to spend too much time cleaning house either. Many of the postwar designs also included things like stacking chairs that were lightweight and portable – just the thing for fitting into small apartments and kitchens. So the need for small litchen tables is a recent problem – people have been finding solutions for decades. There is the perfect retro kitchen table and chairs online today, just the solution you are looking for, plus you can add a little pizzazz to your kitchen with a great retro look.
