Amana Tables

Two styles of tables were predominant in the Amana homes. They were made of beautiful walnut, cherry or pine woods, usually square in shape, with round tapered legs and some turned areas below the apron and above the foot. This style had two drawers and white castors. The second style was a bit more ornate with molding or turning. It was a five or six-legged gate leg table which could extended to one side and had a leaf. Both of these style tables were placed against the living room wall and covered with a tablecloth.  This made the table more decorative than functional. It was the smaller side tables that were more functional.
