A 1950s Kitchen, Locked Away Since It Was Built


Like walking back in time, furniture designer Nathan Chandler opened the door on a home he bought in 2010 and found the kitchen in nearly original condition from when it was built in 1956.

For some reason the original owners built the house but never lived in it, keeping it sealed away and rarely using the pastel pink General Electric appliances that were installed from the start.

While you could watch old I Love Lucy or Leave it to Beaver episodes to get a look at mid-century kitchens, it’s not really the same in black and white. Even old color films don’t look quite the same as reality. Here we are treated to a modern day vision of exactly what some industrious ’50s housewives were dealing with – top loading dishwasher, cupboard mounted refrigerator, and all.
