WK (MR) ITM, Suit Yourself in Furniture, Say Decorators You know the expression, a suite of furniture? Pronounced "suit," this furniture phenonv cnon connotes ft matching set of two chairs and a sofa — the type grandma bought when she was a gal. She took weeks to make up her mind which style of "suite" to buy. Often it was a family affair as well as the single most important home furnishings purchase. It had to be,'for that "Suite" cost a mint of money.'and'grandma was usually stuck with it for the rest of her life. Then, later, her daughter would inherit it* By now/ that."suite" i's'a genu- . ine'antique,, but granddaughter wouldn't .give it attic space — anil one can't blame her. ' This spring, beautifully de- . signed chairs and "Sofas are available in the market place which makes grandma's matched "suite" look as archaic as an ancient suit of armor •— and just as functional. . • Modern technology and materials have opened new doors in the home. High speed precision woodworking machinery can now carve a chair leg in seconds — old-time workman took hours. Not only does it save money, but the results produce a much finer product. There's less room for human error. In the old days, down, horsehair and shoddy, or moss, were used for stuffing chairs. Today it's cottons, latex foams, polyurethane foams and dac- ron fills — extra comfort for PULL IIP A CHIPPENDALE. ..

One might assume that a better product must cost more money. Where Grandpa once paid about six hundred dollars for his auto* mobile, Dad now spends thousands. But, on the home front, prices have taken a different direction. An elegant chai.r can • cost even less than the latest style dress. Many firms specialize in mod- 'estly.priced chairs and sofas. One manufacturer, Sam Moore Furniture Industries, is noted for their authentic reproductions. A handsome Chippendale chair, upholstered in a profuse floral print, can be purchased for under a hundred dollars. No need to search out thrift shops, or spend lumps of money to reupholster an old chair. All one 'winds up with then is a 'retread* job. A reproduction of an actual antique is properly proportioned for today's home. Comfort is built-in, and naturally, the upholstery is specially treated to resist dirt and stains. New materials provide a fresh viewpoint toward design and decor. Today, the rule books are thrown out. No rigid do's and don'ts stand between a woman and her home. For there is a freedom in decor never experienced before. Today, a woman can suit herself. She is not locked in by the commercial furniture "suite." The Suave Shirt Has Distinction there's a big change-over in dress shirts that, transforms everything from white 16 blue, melon, gold, raspberry.

The pattern story is crisp, distinctive, forceful. You will see graph checks, tight stripes, in combination of Shock and subdued colors. The color part: Light or dark, Color dips into all areas of spring shirtings, and on all fabrics. Seen at advance showings: the traditional button* down in a twin-colored tatter- sail.
