Ice Cream Chairs
Recently there has been considerable interest in Victorian ice cream chairs and their matching tables. Painted a cheerful color, they have a charming old-fashioned appearance with the ability to be usable where space is limited.
Two ice-cream chairs and a tiny table will often fit into a corner of a small kitchen or into an alcove, to provide a cosy breakfast nook, a place for a quick lunch or coffee-break, a quiet corner to figure out the week's menus, sort your recipes, balance your checkbook before Husband sees it, or a good place to set up the checkerboard for junior and his little friend. In your basement recreation room the ice-cream chairs can be the decorating spark to a very attractive room.
Comfortable around the barbecue pit or for the patio, they should be brought inside during inclement weather.
