Cool furniture, design objects and desiderata

post #1 of 3693
Thread Starter 
Thought I'd start a thread similar to the shoe one to track cool furniture, interior design and other objects for sale on eBay or other online store.

Don't have to be great deals only (although that's cool), could also be design pr0n...



I'll start with stuff I came across today on eBay

Cool MCM teak chairs




Nice alternative to an Eames lounge chair & ottoman




Nice Jens Risom chair




Cool little table lamp

Phat Guido has one of these, right?

He has a pair (IIRC).

Apparently he has the prototypes. This thread will be my downfall.

Ebay always has a good assortment of design objects, whether expensive or inexpensive. I suspect many dealers get their wares from ebay.

Assorted Maison Jansen items:

I found that Newson Cappellini the day it was listed. We DO NOT need another blowup spot for furniture. I hate you guys. And answer my PM Matt. Damn you.

Here is one that I was eyeing but had to give up on, given the price it escalated to...

Lovely side/magazine table

This attributed to Gio Ponti desk--albeit costly--is nice.

Those of you who've bought furniture from ebay, what's the best way to have it shipped? What's this Greyhound business? I didn't even know Greyhound does shipping.

What are the best search terms for this kind of stuff?

About 10-15X what I would pay for one, I love these old tanker desks.

If you find a beat up one, they can be repainted with car paint (enamel would work as well as urethane at a fraction of the cost and trouble) and look really amazing.

I was wondering the same thing.


BTW, this thread
post #15 of 3693
I have a favorite search with all the brands that I'm fond of i.e. (cappellini, "poltrona frau", emeco, etc.). Formatting it in that fashion will search multiple terms simultaneously. A lot of this stuff would probably fall under the midcentury/"eames era"/"danish modern"/mcm searches.
