A May 1965 view of a kitchen display

It cries BLC or Interiors, but neither has American Bride or Raygold on the exhibitors lists on NYWF64.com.

From Wikipedia:

"In 1951 Alvin A. Goldhush, a Long Island dentist, made dental cabinets and created the company Formed Laminates, Inc. in Lindenhurst, N.Y. Goldhush eventually gave up dentistry and devoted his time to the company, now named Raygold Corp.[4] Raygold Corp acquired a wood processing plant in Moorefield, W.V. in 1957."

"Boise Cascade acquired Raygold and moved the company head office from Long Island to Winchester, Virginia" (in 1971)

Can't find a listing under Formed Laminates, either.

Looking at the Better Homes and Gardens issue photos, it's not either the contemporary or modern home of the House of Good Taste.

 

It was at the Festival of Gas:

Last page of the brochure, List of Functioning Equipment, RayGold Industries, Lindenhurst N.Y., Contact Alan Lasser; Raygold - Modern Bride Kitchen, Appliance Garden.

Its an image of the brochure rather than searchable text, so I had to find it by reading the whole thing.

Apparently there were two other model kitchens, Whitehall Cabinets and Yorketowne Kitchens, and both companies contributed to the Appliance Garden as well.

Now the quest becomes finding pictures of the other kitchens. ;)
