The 1950s Kitchen PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

The 1950s Kitchen free pdf The 1950s was the first great age of the modern kitchen. Labour-saving appliances, bright colours and the novelty of fitted units moved the kitchen from dankness into light, where it became the domain of the happy housewife and the heart of the home. New space-age material Formica, decorated with fashionable patterns, topped sleek cupboards that contained new classic wares such as Pyrex and 'Homemaker' crockery, and the ingredients for 1950s staples. Electricity entered the kitchens of millions, and nowhere in the home was modern technology and modern design more evident. This book is a feast of nostalgia, and a mine of inspiration for anyone wanting to recreate that '50s look in their own home.
