This charming 1940s dining room owed much of its originality to the dramatic floor of Armstrong’s Linoleum in a Chinese fret design, with a center section of black Marbelle that provided a fitting background.

The rest of the room lived up to the floor in smartness. The appliquéd gold pattern edging the tablecloth repeated the design of the floor.

The lighted wall niche over the sideboard provided a setting for the glass collection that had previously been hiding in the china closet.

Clever decorating ideas and excellent use of color have made this a room that will win many compliments. It’s a lovely setting for daily living or for entertaining.
