Yellow dining room: Vintage card catalog + exposed beams + Thonet chairs, a photo by xJavierx on Flickr.
This dining room's turned-leg table once stood in a Maine grange hall, while the vintage library cabinet came out of a Connecticut municipal building. The homeowners snatched up the plywood Thonet chairs — plus one industrial office seat — from various dealers at a Connecticut antiques fair for $25 to $40 each. The house is an 1820 Flemish Colonial, located in a quiet hamlet of New York's lower Hudson Valley.
