Just Listed | Lamps, Lamps, Lamps - Bob Kinzie Affiliated Craftsman Studio Pottery, Gordon Martz for Marshall Studios, Laurel Chrome & Cork Mid-Century Table Lamps

Lighting might be the most important element in decorating a home.  Lighting fixtures illuminate our treasured items and also highlight our favorite colors , they establish the mood and ambiance, and the light itself affects our emotions and mental health.  

The fixture itself is a statement.  Fixtures are sculpture.  A single lamp can sit alone and become a statement piece.  They add character to a room and enhance the d├ęcor and mood. 

Here are a few new pieces listed at One & Home...And there are more to come. Please take a look at what I currently have Here.

Modern Coffee Table - Paul McCobb for Imperial Furniture Company??

So, I ran into this this beautiful, 6 foot, walnut, with a brass trim detail, coffee table at a local antique shop this week.  As I walked through the door, the table caught my eye. At first glance I recognized the brass trim as a detail Paul McCobb used for a few pieces in his Irwin Collection. The price was a little high for me, so I walked around the store for a little while, but I came back to this table.

I decided to turn the table over with the hopes I would see a Calvin - Irwin Collection by Paul McCobb emblem.  It was not there.  What was there was an Imperial Furniture Company of Grand Rapids, MI emblem.

I still wanted the table, not necessarily to sell, but for my personal residence.  We own a McCobb linear coffee table with travertine top that sits in our living room.  Only a few steps away is our family room.  I thought this piece would compliment the other coffee table we own. After a little negotiating, I walked out with the table.

So, I get home and "try" to research the Modern line of furniture by Imperial of Grand Rapids, MI.   Well, needless to say, there is not much...Except a blog by Jonathon Goldstein referencing Paul McCobbs brief stint with Imperial Furniture Company before Calvin Furniture purchased it in 1955.  And that is about all.

I still have no idea if this table is a McCobb, but needless to say, it is a beautiful, "linear", piece.  I will be doing more research and hope to share what I find soon.

Until then, you can read more from Jonathon Goldstein's blog here.

UPDATE: 4/24/2014:
This table is NOT Paul McCobb.  It appears to be influenced by Paul McCobb's Irwin Collection.  Thanks to help from Jonathan Goldstein, this piece is from Imperial's Embassy line '58 - '59.

Mid-Century Modern Baumritter Rocking Lounge Chair
 A vintage Baumritter, predecessor to Ethan Allen, walnut rocking lounge chair.  The seat is on springs so the chair pivots back and forth.  The upholstery is not original to the chair.  It is actually off a Selig Kofod Larsen recliner I recently sold to an out-of-state dealer.  I did not want to offer this chair without cushions. The cushions have some slight soiling. If you are interested in this chair, but don't want the cushions, you buy the fabric and I will have new cushions made for $175.

A small Danish Modern, mid-century, turned teak table lamp.  A cute little thing.
