Week-End Round Up - Vintage Sale & Bertoia

What a weekend......



We had our first ever "Vintage Hoarding" Sale.  All in all it was a great success.  We met many new pickers and "hoarders".  It was a rainy weekend, but we managed to pull it off.  Here is Mike running to set up his Curtis Mathes stereo console.....I will be happy to see this piece gone. Not that it isn't a admirable piece, we moved it at least 10 times.




 After the sale we met up with our friend Dan.  He had this set of vintage modern Knoll Harry Bertoia wire chairs sitting in his garage for quite some time.  The cushions are not in the best condition, I probably over paid, but who cares. The frames show little wear and they are now in my collection.  These will be available soon.




Also from Dan, I picked up this Modeline Danish Modern (Although Not Danish - It has Danish styling) mid century Modern cylinder table lamp.  This piece will be available soon!

A signed C. Jere aspen tree leaf wall sculpture.  I went to a house call and decided to purchase this one.  As some know, I'm not a huge fan of Jere.  There are a few pieces of theirs that I truly appreciate, but most seem a little too retro for me.  However, this is a beautiful, sleek, vertical modern piece I admire.  I might hang this one in my home.


At the same house call with the Jere above, I picked up this Kent Coffey Tableau low boy dresser.  We kept this piece....for now.  I also have the tall dresser and mirror.





 A few other chairs I picked up.  A Thonet and a couple chrome sling chairs in the Marcel Breuer style.



 I purchased the blue danish styling side chair in the style of LB Koford Larsen's Elizabeth Chair (above), the danish styling buffet / sideboard (above) and an extendable slat bench / coffee table from my friend Mackenzie  - Sight Unseen.  I will pick these items up this week and determine what to do with them.

Eames Eiffel Yellow Fiberglass Chair



I recently picked up and sold this Herman Miller Eames Eiffel Molded Fiberglass Chair - FAST.  It went to a home in Ohio.   My client is looking for more of these in  black on yellow IF you have any, I'm interested.  - Sold

Danish Finds....Plus More

I purchased several pieces from an Estate a few weeks ago and this is the first opportunity I've had to highlight the chairs from the sale plus other items available soon...

I will post more early this week...Stay Tuned!!








The most unique chairs I have owned.  A fabulous pair of Ma & Pa teak vintage Danish Modern Lounge Chairs.   These chairs are unique and in incredible condition for their age.  I haven't determined a price as I'm still researching the maker.  They are a mix between Arts and Crafts, California Craft and Modern. I have a reputable dealer who thinks they are Tobia Scarpa valued at $5K+ retail. Both of us are still unsure. I'm happy to have them in the collection.



A pair of Hans Olsen by Frem Rojle Three Leg Dining / Side Chairs.  I picked these up and added them to my personal collection.


A wonderful, in great condition teak, bent plywood vintage side chair.  Early Danish Modern.  This piece will be available soon.


I traded this great Danish Modern, Cylinder Floor Lamp, along with my Rubber Maid storage shed (I just built two larger ones) to my good friend Mike (www,MidCenturyMike.com) for a Facade John Stuart bedroom set  that needs a little work. Mike will probably have this available soon!  


Seven Vintage, Industrial Stacking File Cabinets, with a retro wired swag lamp.  The swag lamp was originally white, but I painted it orange for a little extra eye sauce.  It turned out great and will be available this weekend at our vintage sale in Lakewood!!!  I have haven't determined what I'm going to do with the file cabinets....


Orange Wired Swag Lamp.  Cool.  This item is available!!

Weekend Round-Up - Eames

This weekend I went to a local auction and found some  Harry Bertoia for Knoll, Eames for Herman Miller Shells and Herman Miller DCM bases.  Wow.  I also picked up some nice industrial Stacor boxes (What to do with them???)


A few Knoll - Bertoia Shells and Herman Miller DCM bases.  These need to be cleaned up.  They have been stacked together, so some of the color has worn off onto the other chairs.  Price TBD.


6 Herman Miller Eames Bases. 5 DCM.  Maybe I can get three chairs out of these parts??? Price TBD.


6 Industrial Stacon Vintage Blue Print Cabinets.  What to do with these?  I'm thinking about making side-tables (reclaimed wood top and legs)...until then $200 each - as-is

 The industrial lamp I picked up to show the height of the cabinets.
Industrial Yellow Lamp - Pretty neat find.  $65 as-is.
