Summer Furniture is Very Decorative This Year
NOT content to leave all of the glory of summer coloring to hangings, rugs and

captured some of it in most delightful ways.
For Porch or Living Room

and blue design and cretonne cushions, $495. A reed suite of four pieces is very new in
mottled blue with gay cretonne cushions, $563. Stately pcacock chairs, so decorative
for porch or lawn, raise their proud fan-shape backs to slender height. They are
closely woven of natural reed and rattan and outlined in a narrow black Grecian
border. Two sizes, $65 and ?78.50. Other suites of reed are finished in gray-green,
orange and black, blue sienna, old mahogany with English chintz cushions; old
ivory with gay flowered chintz cushions; frosted brown and black enamel. Also, there
are natural or brown willow suites, and any color finish can be ordered. Kaltex summer
furniture is another fine type.
For Summer Bedrooms
A SUITE painted in a soft putty color is an early American adaptation dccorated
with a delicate pansy bouquet, five pieces, $750. Another suite, also an early American
adaptation, is apple green with a rose cluster design. The Windsor bed adds greatly
to its quaintness. Five pieces, $650. Many other suites, adaptations of Louis XVI
designs, in r*ory and gray.
For Summer Breakfast Rooms

SIXTH FLOOR ?
French Cretonnes
SOME garden you love entangles you
in its color beauty when June comes in.
It is much that same stimulation you
get on seeing these hundreds of new
Cretonnes from Erance. The French
designs and uses of color imprinted on
heavy English fabric are scarcely dis
tinguishable from hand-blocked linens,
cxcept in the moderateness of their prices.
One of the most distinctive of all these
charming Cretonnes reveals the natural
feeling for design that the French possess.
Loosely defined blocks of gray, blue and
black are relieved from monotony by en
closing a small flowerpot that boasts the
decorative bleeding heart. How cool,
how colorful and old-fashioned! Prices
are very low, 8oc, $1.15, $i-35 yard
Charming French brocades are only
$3.50 yard. French striped moire, 50
inches wide, $2.50 yard.

ural or with black band designs, $6
