Leicht hood. My search for remotely possible (non-hideous) range hoods for a mid-century modern open kitchen with the cooktop in the middle of the room has presented a hell of a design dilemma. I am definitely going towards the 'no vent' thing as in all of my years I've never once turned one on even though I've previously had them in all other homes.

Ventilation hood that beats them all. And so no one else spends hours trying to track down the source of this oft-pinned but always lacking in info cooktop vent, here it is:

Aluminum and Stainless Steel Tee Nosings
Aluminum edging for my kitchen counters. Because I have quarter-round end cabinets, I cannot use stainless steel edging. (No one can bend it any longer.) The aluminum can bend to fit because it snaps into a routed groove in the countertop surface.
four white and black door handles on a gray wall
Brilliant idea. Comes in stainless steel. For that gap between your counters and your stove so food doesn't fall in.

This kitchen is up for grabs right now in Cincinnati, Ohio. Not only are you looking at pink steel cabinets, look at those fabulous floor tiles, the charcoal grey countertops and.... THAT WALLPAPER!

Illinois Fibre Specialty
My issue has always been trying to find SHINY vinyl. So many dinette sets out there for sale with descriptors like: "Excellent condition except chairs need recovered." Easier said than done. Vintage dinettes had shiny vinyl and I've yet to find a supplier of that. I have no idea if this company offers it since they do not have an email contact, but I will call them and ask. For those of you who aren't so hardcore with your accuracy, they offer pastel colors that are hard to find.
