a I Th
HE whole trend of the times In home
furnishing- seems to be toward the
I economising of space and, conse*
quently, of labor. It Is now frankly
acknowledged to be as much of a
nuisance to have too much room as to
have not onough. To this end much furniture
that has always been markedly
characteristic of any one certain room la
being modUled-neutrallzed, as It wereIn
a manner that will make It suitable la
several other rooms, rather than In just
one plaice.
I The room that was formerly the parlor
i may now, by a species of legerdemain, be
converted Into a lightning change guests'
room. First of all, privacy Is gained by
having doors?usually French doors?between
the front and back parlors; In the
twinkling of an eye It becomee a perfectly
equipped bedroom.
The two big, comfortably upholstered
chairs that form a part of the furnishings
unfold and disclose themselves to be
twin folding beda The little wall table
with a quaint mirror hanging above It
makes an excellent dressing table and
has a smalt drawer In which toilet article!
ere neatly concealed.
At one side of the room Is a simple chest
of drawers which, on aocount of its not
Ibejng surmounted by a mirror, has so lost
Its Identity as a chiffonier that it.may
he nlarrwl In anv mm Intha
I house. Jp .
Somewhere In the room Is a good sized
table, and this table, because of Its simplicity
and certain nice additions to it, Is
well worth ;descr)b|n* In .detail. Onji Is
a lamp and a number of books, magazines,
etc., yet Its equipment allows of It remaining
Id perfect ?rd#f, lamp and other
tilpgs.on Its top being undisturbed, while
Il ls used for writing.
The secret of it 4s that the drawer. Is
used tp write upon. The drawor, when tt
Is pulled out, is seen to have a soft of
a ltd that may bo, lifted, in the drawer,
under this lid, are the writing materials.
At the extreme back the Ildltke drawer
cover Is cut across and fitted with tiny
hinges. The back piece hss a hole cut In
It and Is fitted with a pair of ink wells.
,Any. one who. hss a table with a drawer
"can fit It for writing purposes in this way.
Take the drawer out On theouteide of
.It ,mark off a, line an Inch do an from
the. top all the way around. Cut the top
of the drawer, off at thla marking line,
then fit' a flat piece.of wood an Inch thick
across Its top to form a lid. Finish' It with
Ink well holes, and you will have a type
of wiitfiig table that la most' acceptable
