1950s Chrome & Formica Kitchen Table & Chairs

Retro 50's Diner Table and 4 Chairs - $100 (Alexandria)

This listing is for the quintessential 1950s kitchen table and chairs, trimmed in chrome with a Formica top. Although these are quite common, this is a nice looking set and has a silverware drawer built in to the table (a fairly common, but convenient feature). Overall there is nothing spectacular here, but nothing will give your kitchen more retro flair than a set like this. They are very easy to clean and will stay structurally sound forever.

Before buying make sure to check the chrome for pitting. Surface rust is very easy to remove but pitting (flaking) is essentially irreparable and will spread over time.

Overall a nice set, and not even the cheapest set from Ikea will cost $100 or less.
