EASE THE BUDGET
By buying and using secondhand pieces that you finish or paint yourself. Plaid cotton in coral, green, and yellow for curtains and studio couch rould be used against yellow or deep green walls and make a good background for maple furniture.
Bookcases, chest, desk-all within a few feet of the corner are what you see in the picture below. Very interesting is the cedar chest, in the same toast finish of the modern unit pieces, which stands before the radiator under the window. The radiator, painted to match the furniture, is hardly noticeable. In a limited space U cedar chest is in valuable and such a replica of an Old Dutch dower chest as the one below is a great decorative addition. Today unit furniture of the same height and depth, but of different widths, is built to suit the wall space of a living room just as ready-built units are made for kitchens. More and more in the future we will have living-room units, bedroom units, etc. And at moderate prices. We now have interchangeable units that accomplish the result but you have to do a little figuring of space for yourself. It is little trouble, however, and this type of furniture always utilizes the corners.
The tulip design on this replica of an old Dutch dower chest, books, and the poinsettia-red leather chair add colorful richness to this functional group. Although made of red cedar to insure against moth sabotage of precious woolens stored inside, the chest has been veneered to match the popular toast finish of the other pieces in this very attractive and livable corner group.
CORNER CABINETS may hold an amazing amount of china behind the cupboard doors and make a decorative display on the open shelves above.
These cabinets may be built in as illustrated here or they can be separate pieces matching or harmonizing with the other furniture. Note decorative linen-textured rug. Below shows gay Swedish decor in cockscomb red, light blue, and white. Imagination was used in creating this corner and window. The importance of the decoration is repeated to make a painted frame for the plate on the wall.
Furniture may fill twoeven threecorners of a room. It is well to leave the fourth open, although I have seen rooms where the four walls were lined with furniture as a library would be lined with books. Break the line by an upriyht piece or chest on chest where they balance doors or windows. 18th Century corner cabinets are suitable in combination rooms, dining rooms, and living rooms and may be built in or be separate matching pieces of great beauty. In Provincial rooms crude but no less attractive cabinets made the corner as useful as decorative. The only piece I dont advise is the Victorian corner whatnot. ? It doesnt hold enough to atone for being an ugly duckling.
