Living Room Interior Decorating
Informal modern dining furniture, made by Dux, Inc., is well-suited to the cramped dining area of a small apartment, and with a change of shorter legs, will switch roles to a coffee table in the next house or apartment.
The frames of table and chairs are of white chip-resistant tubular steel. Chair seats are covered with natural linen that snaps off like a slip cover (the snaps are underneath the seats). The chairs also stack—handy therefore to have around for extra party seats.
Small dining area off a kitchen is turned to advantage by the handsome background treatment, window design and striking modern furniture.
Window wall of the area has been covered with pine paneling stained a deep tone. Gaily-flowered turquoise and yellow cotton print by Waverly is pinch-pleated into tie-back draperies, while the other wall of the area is brightened by the companion wallpaper.
A bay window, decoratively treated, is a wonderful spot to place a small dining arrangement because the architectural shape of the area establishes a sense of privacy and intimacy.
Sketch above suggests one of many possible ways to dramatize such a bay window setting. Here, trelliage is used as wall panels and to frame the individual windows, which are covered with sheer pinch-pleated shirred draperies. Flooring of two-color vinyl tile is dramatic and practical.
