View Full Version : Because our American butts deserve it.

Cathy inherited an American-made Formica dinette table made by the defunct Douglas Furniture Manufacturing Company of Chicago from her grandmother, but no chairs.

We've finally bought a pair of brand new American-made Vitro Seating dinette chairs to go with the table. We had borrowed a couple of wood chairs from the dining room set, but we know the dinette table wasn't happy with that arrangement.

We don't need to remember when kitchen furniture was coolness personified. We get to see it and sit in it every day. :)

That is sweet! I think my grandmother had a table like that.

I like that. I'd like to have a set like that at the breakfast end of my kitchen. Been wanting to get a table to put there.

They both sell Vitro Seating products to consumers. Vitro Seating makes tables, chairs, booths and entire interiors for the restaurant trade, so you know they're going to last.

Those types of tables remind me of my childhood, and make me ill to my stomach.

I'll take a nice, meaty, Victorian monster of wood and velvet, thankyouverahmuch.

I'm soooo going to bookmark that site. I love the old Corning Ware - my mom had a lot of it. :D

My mom has a yellow table just like that one. She has it in her enormous kitchen and uses it as an island for breadmaking and such.

I want one, but have no room. :(
