Nothing says you've just walked into a classic 1950s greasy spoon more than vinyl booths, shiny chrome stools, and formica tables edged in chrome. This unique style of furniture is such a major part of the diner look it's practically impossible to recreate it without at least one of these items in it. In remodeling your kitchen or dining room in the style of a diner, you could purchase actual vinyl booths. However, not only can these be expensive, they're not that necessary. This is because a less cheaper alternative is a Mid-Century Modern style dinette set in the style of ones that were once produced by companies like the "Venture Bros". An example is this very cool dinette set from Coaster Furnishings.

As much as you might like to have a complete dining room set, you may not have enough room for one. An alternative
