Mid Century Coffee Table

May 7, 2009 at 11:17 am (Shop Items) (, , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , )

I have a gorgeous Mid Century Modern Coffee Table to add to the shop!  The table is low and long, and gorgeous wood.  The triangle pattern in the center is neat and the legs are that great MCM shape.  The table is in great vintage condition but for one small mark in the top.  It is refinish-able and would be perfect!  Let me know if you are interested! 🙂

A Few Items For Sale

May 4, 2009 at 8:04 am (Shop Items) (, , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , )

Here are a few of our first big items for sale in the new shop.  There are a few others in the works that needed face-lifts, but these beauties were great as-is.  Let me know if you are interested, although these are awful large to ship.  Mid Century lovers should swoon for them!






The cute little fiberglass chair is a gorgeous robin’s egg blue.  It says Krueger Metal Products, Green bay Wisconsin on its tag.  The hutch is gorgeous and spacious.  It has two shelves behind the glass door, two cupboards below, and three drawers, one of which has dividers.  The oval details on the doors are really cool.  The tag says Gibson Furniture Co. 

Let me know if you are interested! 🙂  And, stay tuned, there should be a MCM coffee table and a funky table and chairs by the end of the week as I get them cleaned up!

This weeks chair love comes early!  I spotted this beauty on Apartment Therapy earlier in the week.  The picture is of the store front of the Pico Modern Furniture shop.  What a pretty place!  And, great taste in chairs, I might add.


The shop is described as unique and unusual.  I love it already!  And, I want the chair! 🙂

New Chair Love

March 11, 2009 at 11:05 am (Inspiration) (, , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , )

This week I found this cute little Mid Century chair on Flickr.


This is a walnut and naugahyde rocker and ottoman.  I’m not usually super into MCM furniture, but I can totally see this rocker being used in a living room or nursery for a new baby.  The white leather look with the dark wood is great.

Current Chair Love

This weeks chair love:

This guy is so ugly that its cute.  I think if it were reupholstered in a fun modern material, the shape could be really fun a a living room or even as a side seat in a large bedroom.  Maybe do away with the squiggly stitching?

This seat was found on Ebay and is described as a vintage retro mid century circle chair, love seat, or sofa.

I think it has strange potential…

Name That Chair

January 5, 2009 at 12:45 pm (Home Changes and Additions) (, , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , )

I know I have posted pictures of this chair before, but I am still wondering. I saw this lonely little chair on the side of the road just waiting for the garbage man about a month ago (yes, the side of the road). I went straight home and begged Tony to go nab it for me. I mean the poor thing is adorable and in desperate need of saving. So, being the amazing and understanding guy Tony is, he drove his truck over to the house where I spied the chair and scooped it up.

When we got it home, we realized there wasn’t a thing wrong with it. It wasn’t broken, stained, or even scratched. It looked as though some one had owned it since it’s original day and finally used it in a garage or shop, as it was a bit dirty. They must have thought it wasn’t new enough looking to clean up. Well, I have news for these people. This chair is amazing. I scrubbed it with my handy dandy Magic Eraser (amazing also by the way!). And, the thing was soon good as new.

We now have the perfect addition to our pocket office. But, we were still wondering what kind of chair this is exactly. It is unmarked, but looks mid-cenury to me. I am no expert, but was guessing 50’s or 60’s. If any of you out there have seen another one of these, or have any info, please let us know!

Even if we never solve the mystery, we now have this truly cute chair all for our own!
