A Lesson In Kitchen Hiding

Scanned from a 1947 issue of Better Homes and Gardens, can you guess what they are selling in this ad? Here's a hint: It is something "for every room in the house"!

If you guessed Armstrong Linoleum Floors, you sir/ma'am are a super genius! The rest of the ad goes on to tell a little story about how the husband wants to hide the kitchen because you can see it from the living room. A friend visits and "incredulously" inspects the kitchen updates. He shows off the hidden table, hidden ventilated vegetable bins, and, of course, the linoleum tabletop, counter tops and new linoleum floors. As funny as this ad is, it does have some valid kitchen storage solutions and eye popping color choices to boot!
