Floorplan featuring Dining Room

 

"The beautiful brass and acrylic chandelier is supplemented by a circle of architectural lighting recessed in the ceiling. Here, as in all the rooms, dimmer controls make it possible to flood the area with radiance or reduce wattage to the subdued glimmer of candlelight. Behind the floor-to-ceiling draperies of Creslan are sliding doors opening on the patio. Surfaces of Formica laminate both protect and decorate the handsome furniture."

If nothing else, the blue and green glass chandelier would date this picture to the mid 1960s. The dimmers, sliding glass doors and recessed spotlights are all good ideas that would see increased acceptance in the coming years, while ironically Formica tabletops like the one shown would become, for many, instantly recognizable symbols of the sixties.
