Today when I think of dining tables or kitchen tables and chairs, I think that they are wood..but really there are several different options available...

And one style in particular has been around for a very long time. 

The set that we are highlighting today, is made by Chromcraft Furniture.

Their dining sets are known for their comfortable chairs which are padded plus have

Swivel and tilt!  Chromcraft was part of a larger company in the early 1900’s, and in 1939, started to specialize in ‘Chrome sets’ because chrome was the most common type of metal being used at that time. Metal producers were seeking additional markets to use/sell the chrome to, in order to use it in new products. Therefore, the name Chromcraft came into being! 

 

Chromcraft was the first company to design this style of chair,

and has been going strong for over 80 years!

 

There are a number of dinette sets made with this chair type today. Different looks, sizes and colors to go with a wide variety of designs for kitchens or dinning room looks. Some have a more modern flair and others, a more traditional look. You can pick from a good number of fabrics or leather looks as well. to get the custom look that you want for your space. 

Something special that Chromcraft does with the tables that they make is offer them in solid wood or a laminate top. Many people refer to the laminate top as "Formica" because it is a brand name that has become interchangeable with the product itself. Laminate is very durable. Many counter tops are now made out of laminate as well. If you have kids in the home or a husband who loves to work on his fishing lures at the kitchen table -then you may just fall in love with a Chromcraft table. 

Chromcraft quality lasts and lasts...now, maybe I should say that with a slight "disclaimer, because if any object (furniture, a vehicle or even  shoes) is misused" or abused- it will not last as long as they were designed to. Chromcraft is very well made. I have a set in my home that has lasted 40+ years. 2 kids, 4 grand kids and a whole lot of youth parties where there may have been too many kids in the house to even count. My mother also has a set in her kitchen and they have been there as long as I can remember. My parents have used that table set day in and day out. They pushed them self from the table to the refrigerator to grab the salad dress or to refill their ice at least a 1000 times.  The soft glide caster wheels are really nice, especially if you have difficulty getting up or down or standing for long periods of time. These chairs can help you move around your space and not cause damage to your flooring or your joints. 

Come in to Tri City Furniture to try a Chromcraft set or to learn more about their design. You will love their comfort and their quality.
