1945 Congoleum Linoleum Rug

This 1945 Congoleum ad was published in Ladies Home Journal and reflects the continuation of 1930s style. Unlike its main competitor, Armstrong, the Congoleum company was more erratic in its advertising style. This kitchen would be pretty easy to replicate today though with contemporary linoleum on the floors and counters right down to the gooseneck faucet on the sink. Red, green and white is a timeless color scheme.
