    Vintage Furniture Thread - Chromcraft Preferred

    Don't have pics of anything to start this, but will once kitchen renovation is done. Any of y'all collectors or have any pieces of vintage Chromcraft or formica tables and chairs sets? Even beyond that, other vintage furniture is cool too. I'm kinda looking for inspiration on this one, too. There are so many styles to choose from! Ideally we're cruising around for a white table with yellow chairs with the drop down sides instead of a leaf.

    Before I googled "Chromcraft" all I could envision was the kitchens from That 70's Show.

    Upon further inspection, Chromcraft is mostly a lot more subtle. As anside, I go to Navy bases for meetings and on occasion the meeting room furniture looks a lot like the Chromcraft offerings except it's original equipment.

    My mom still has her dining room set from the 70s. The table and the chair frames are teak. The table in its smallest config is round but I think it takes 3 leaves so it expands out pretty big. The chair upholstery is avocado green.

    Once in a while I get a crazy idea that I want one of these:

    You know, if it wasn't for patterned wallpaper, that kitchen table, cabinets, and countertops would be on point. I like it! Our kitchen table, which will be our dining room table when we get that sorted out, is a similar setup, though it's laminate. Circle with no leaf, oval with the three leaves in there. It was my wife's Grandma's first table when she got married in the 1950's.

    Also a desk like that would be dope! Very sturdy and functional. Just don't bother putting a typewriter in it unless you're a struggling art student.

    Typewriter, sure, if it's also vintage.

    I think this would match the era of that desk as well:
