See 14 regional designs for living -- inspired by DU PONT fibers

As you visit the Worlds' Fair Pavilion of American Interiors, you'll see fourteen room settings designed for Du Pont by members of regional chapters of the American Institute of Interior Designers. Just five are shown on these two pages. In each, the floor is enhanced with luxurious carpet made with Du Pont
Nylon and certified "501". Upholstery fabrics, too, are styled with Du Pont Nylon -- many of them with "Antron", the new, lustrous nylon so special it goes by another name. Fabrics of "Dacron" and "Orlon" lend their colorful, sun-loving, shape-keeping beauty to panels and draperies. Long wear and

ease of care are characteristic of all Du Pont fibers. And you'll find a wide world of fabric colors and styles. Shopping for a carpet? Look for the "501" Mark on the opposite page. It is our assurance of carpet fabrics that have met exacting Du Pont standards.

(Du Pont makes fibers, not carpets.)
