Man Buys Home With Perfectly Preserved 1950s Kitchen
Many of us have a design era that’s among our favorites. Mine certainly isn’t the 80s (I’d be fine if I never saw wallpaper borders or forest green carpets again), but I’ve always loved the simple, streamlined aesthetic of 1950s design. In 2010, furniture designer Nathan Chandler purchased a home built in 1956. The house was never occupied, so it remained in its original 50s state when he took possession. Fortunately for us, he captured photographs before renovating. It’s truly like stepping back in time!
The baby pink countertops are to die for. And check out that cabinet hardware! Love.
Check out the General Electric wall fridge and freezer! So retro.
The appliances still contained the original warranty booklets. Like a piece of history!
I adore this 50s light fixture. I would truly hang this in my house today.
Ever wondered what a dishwasher looked like in the 50s? Now you know!
The pink stove is definitely my favorite part of this amazing kitchen.
This is how the stove burner settings were controlled!
I hope you enjoyed this tour of Nathan’s charming 1950s kitchen! You can view more photos of the kitchen here. It’s so cool seeing original kitchens (and houses) from decades gone by – I hope the 50s come back in style in full force one day soon!
