A Perfectly Preserved 1950s Kitchen, Locked Away Since It Was Built

It's a stunning time capsule that owner Nathan Chandler never expected to find. He's a furniture designer who purchased a house in 2010. The original owners had the place built and furnished. But for unknown reasons,* they never lived there. The kitchen has everything that a middle class American family in the 1950s could want. It's like stepping into a set from Mad Men.

The original appliances sit unused. Even the original product manuals are there. The antique dishwasher is especially charming. Check out Chandler's entire photo set here.

*Pro tip: it's probably cursed.

I just remembered that I visited friends in SF in 1993 and they just bought a house that an elderly couple lived in for fifty years and their house was unchanged from the 1950 used but unchanged .

two comments. If the house has never been occupied why isn't there any dust unless they cleaned it up before they took the shots. You can see the mentality of the 50's with the kitchen being all "Pink" a woman's place is in the kitchen. glad we have moved on from that. They "whomever they are, are allowing men into the kitchen now.
