Dinette Set


Oh, another trip back to "Mid Century Modern". What is that??? It's my childhood, that's what. I ate many a meal at a set just like this one at the Bottle Tree Bar and Restaurant. I even felt all nostalgic about the linoleum squares on the floor. I love this place.

One of your evocative photos.

Oh yeah, linoleum. What ever happened to linoleum.

I can see why you'd love this place. I bet it serves comfort food, too.

it's not often we see linoleum these days - at least not here. Love the colours, the light, the shadows and the whole photo looks so in tune with your gorgeous header.

Looks like my grandmama's old kitchen floor before the linoleum got ripped up and modernized! Virginia, you've inspired me to pay more attention to chairs and floors. I love this photo!

That is gorgeous light. Wow. I love this.

Wow Virg, that picture is a poem.

Virginia said...

Hiker,
How's about you writing one of your fine fine short stories about it? You too Petrea!

Thanks everyone. This place just has the most amazing afternoon light coming in the front windows. I"ve posted another shot of a tabletop in the past. Very cool place and they don't seem to think I'm overly weird for getting up and wandering around with my camera!

This is so gorgeous (I need a better vocabulary so I don't keep using the same word). The light is amazing, like a Vermeer painting.

Wow, really, really great eye. Love the color and strong graphic sense.

A lovely play of color, shadow and light! Reminds me of the old diners!

Virginia -- I am crazy for this one! The colors, the light, the angles and the shadows -- it has it all!

This already took my thousand words.

Ditto to all above!!! Great shot V!!!

You would've loved my grandma's kitchen table like this one...it was red with matching red chairs!!!

Did you know that linoleum is actually quite organic and made from renewable sources??? Actually, much healthier than our synthetic floorings!!!
