Culinary specialists have long; known that the enjoyment of any meal is enhanced by serving it in an attractive manner . . . and in a pleasant setting;. And whpther you have a separate dining room or an area at onp end of the living room, you can turn it into one of the most inviting areas in your home, where family or guests can savor relaxed, unhurried meals. There are dining room suites available to fit any size dining area, even the smallest dning "L". Handsome, comfortable nhairs are an invitation to sit a while. And one of the most important pieces, the breakfront, hutch or china cabinet, is as tunc rional as any piece of furniture you ean have, providing storage for china, linens and silverware. Dress up your dining area with liglit, inviting colors, comfortable furniture, sunny draperies, and perhaps a pull-down lighting fixture ,.. and you'll find guests and family lingering over your meal*! From the most functional net for family room or kitchen to the most elegant dining room furniture, our selection is complete.
