Are we really thinking about Autumn already? This month is already the time to think of School Uniforms, sportswear, books and schoolbags. How to get the children back into a routine – back from school, tea, sitting down to homework, play, supper, bath, bed!
Thinking of anything to help with this routine? – the kitchen is the hub of the home particularly during term time – and where does American Diner Style furniture really fit into all of this?
Lets set the scene:
Cola Red Retro Furniture: Imagine coming home with the family on a typical rainy autumn end of school day.
You: 'Everyone races out of the car miserable because the rain is pelting down yet again, keys out, door open, children fall in and fill the hallway – coats thrown on the bannisters, still soaked to the skin – everyone rushes through to the kitchen falling over themselves – the kids race to throw themselves on their chairs – they bang their homework bags down on the table...'
Cola Red Retro Furniture: Don't worry ;) - the table's ok! – large or small - its hardy – it can take it –
You: '...hands washed, tea out,, books out – and the best thing? they 'want' to sit down for a change...'the kitchen's the place to be'
It doesn't matter the size or style of your kitchen – 50's American diner style will work – just by changing the colours and finishes – they are such classic lines and if you stick to the authentic production – you will get the longevity, hardiness and practicality that doesn't always follow when you want something to look good too. Take the Hudson Chairs seen here with the Lexington De Ville Table
– Chosen this time in Baby Duck Egg Blue they work perfectly in this modern family kitchen – the double memory foam gives the older members the comfort factor – the colours give the younger members the fun factor – and the Lexington De Ville Retro Table is the best large kitchen table around – the american width – the chunky aluminium trim around the double laminated tabletop – once you have it you won't want to change it – friends and family – large group gatherings or kids spreading their projects on the table to work on– and always looking good.
Or how about the Lexington Booth seating? The iconic Lexington designs– shaped just like the 1950's classic car seats that you see in all the films – those curves are irresistible – to children and adults alike. And the quality of the Lexington and West Side Booth seat designs are second to none – made like a sofa – not flat based where you can feel the frame underneath. Just about one of the best options for getting the children to sit down and slide in – they won't want to get up again! The Classic Lexington Booth seating chosen here for a Classic American Diner Style kitchen. In American Beauty Red with matching Lexington Designed Sled Based Chair mix - by adding the aqua blue walls, iconic Black & White Chequered floor and the Black & White American style artwork it shows a purist feel - The stainless steel American Size Fridge Freezer - perfect for the family and pops you right back into 2016! Who wouldn't want to do their homework here!
If you didn't have the space you could consider the Liberty Kitchen Stools – with each person in the family choosing their own colour like here in Baby Surf Green, Baby Rose Pink, Bristol Blue and Baby Duck Egg Blue they look fabulous in a modern kitchen
– and as far as kitchen stools go, they are definitely one of the most comfortable on the market – the size of the seat pad will allow the younger members to sit and be happy to eat or work without falling off or feeling unsteady! The frame is welded as one piece (no screws seen!) which gives you the comfort of strength and durability in a busy household. Choosing 1 or 4 – they are such a great alternative in a smaller space – and washable too for all those sticky hands.
