i don't mind that table lefty, though i would probably be shocked at it's price. it looks like something my grandma handed me down that i use in my current place. it's 100 years old. hard to find chairs for it though. i also liked the womb chair but i'm not exactly an arbiter of taste like most here LOL! i am not liking my eames/ stark stuff i bought so much nowadays. going with more contemporary stuff combined with some antiques. though i could go ultra modern in my new place hence the natucci vistosi stuff i post.

THAT was the joke I was waiting for. I knew there had to be a good one. Well done.


I actually kind of like them, but they seem saggy-sack vibe is hard to shake. I suppose it depends what kind of setting they'd be in.

I think this is one of the nicest wine racks I have seen... and so happens that I am selling it (Chicago area). It's from the 1970's by a sculture named Arthur Umanoff...made in the USA. This thing is heavy, made from saddle leather and iron

I have a little James Mont/Dorothy Draper thing going on these days and am moving more in this direction.

That table seems a little less Dorothy Draper, and a little more towards an Ado Chale type look. And that's not a bad thing. The quality of materials/fit should be the real test. Is the base metal or wood?

That thing should make up its mind whether its refined modern furniture or a Craftsman tool chest.

All that stuff is Viola Park. I think it mostly looks plain on-line, but imagine it would wear-in nicely.

I thought you liked objects with multiple uses. You could keep your spatula-spork in the top section, and your combination screwdriver in the bottom.

Just picked up a second one of these Neal Small lamps from '68. Now I have a matching pair, as in this photo (not mine):



The initial example of the lamp in my collection was bought around '97 and was one of my first "vintage design" purchases, before I became totally obsessed. I'm thrilled to have a pair of the lamps after all these years.

Wonderful and looks so comfortable.
