Just In 7-9-13 | Thonet Bruno Weill Bent Ply Chairs, Dux Sweeden Recliner & Ottoman, Vintage Tripod Planter, Stanley Sideboard, Mid-Century Desk, Arne Jacobsen tripod stacking stools, Mod Dry Bar

A few new pieces came in and a few are now currently available. A few need work, and a few have already sold.  Here is a quick glimpse of some of my new items.

But before we get the fun stuff, I hope everyone had a great 4th of July weekend.  We traveled to my In-Laws lake house in Nebraska (Sorry, I can't share the name of the lake - we sort of like it quiet there. Too many people from Colorado are buying real estate and bringing their large boats and wake boards).

Here is a quick view of the lake from our dogs eyes. Our dogs - Hoss (left) and Hopper (Right) love the wind in their fur.
A side profile of Hoss, our Black Mouth Cur.  This dog is almost 6 months old, weighs 60+ lbs and is taller then our Chocolate Lab, Hopper.  He is big, but a good boy.

A mid -century Modern, teak lounge chair and ottoman by Dux of Sweeden.  The upholstery is in amazing condition.  The wood needs cleaned and the back cross bar needs a little work.  I am bringing this to my furniture repair guys tomorrow and should have it available soon.


 A pair of 1948 - mid century modern Bent Ply chairs by Bruno Weill for Thonet.  The chairs are from the beginning stages of molded plywood design and have direct Bauhaus lineage through Bruno Weill..  Originally Weill patented these chairs in 1944 and the patent was accepted for production in 1948.

The chairs need restored.  As soon as they are complete, I will share them with you again.

A pair of danish modern Arne Jacobsen style tripod stacking stools in excellent vintage condition. These stools will be available tonight.

Unbelievable.  I was called to a pick yesterday and this piece has already been recycled.  My good friend Mid Century Mike sold this piece to one of his customers year or so ago.  The customer just sold their amazing Atomic Ranch 1950's home and are moving away from mid-century retro, to rustic Modern. I have a picture of their atomic ranch below.

Is it a coincidence??  I purchased this piece from an estate a few years back. At that time, I was only buying Modern furniture and accessories.  So, I gave it to Mid Century Mike.  It is now back in my possession.  This piece came from the same customers mentioned above.

Here is a quick cell phone picture of the 1950's atomic ranch home where I purchased the furniture mentioned above.  This photo does not do the home justice.  When I arrived to the home a "coming soon" rider was on the real estate sign.  When the door opened, the home was sold.  This house is located in the Glenn's just north of Garrison and Colfax in Lakewood, Colorado.

I usually do not purchase retro dry bars as they take up space and are too much work for one person.  However, this bar stands out and I couldn't resist the purchase.  It has been reupholstered with a black on grey vinyl with a round chrome foot rest.  The bar measures approximately 7' across and 3.5' deep. Honestly, I should have passed on this piece.  It needs a little work and I would rather put my time into items I enjoy more.  IF you are interested in this bar, please contact me and I'll make you a fair deal.
