tray I know, but that big for glasses and stuff? I can't find anything like it online... Must have some other name.

they're serving trays and sold all over and made by various luxury makers.

I love Danish furniture, but that idea is not unique, so there is a lot of competition IMO.

You could make a killing importing Danish mid-century furniture to the US smile.gif

I know, I have thought about it, but there's already a bunch of companies specializing in selling mid century stuff to Japan and the US.

Of the top of my head, a couple of them are know to marking the stuff up like there's no tomorrow.

I found this one that I might like, http://www.wayfair.com/Clava-Leather-Serving-Tray-in-Black-9901BLK-CLV1355.html

 

What you think?

I suspect the quality will be less than desired. I'm sorry I can't be more helpful on this, I find this sort of stuff in a haphazard fashion. I find google lacks imagination when you are in search of luxury home goods.

I sell Italian kitchens and Japanese furniture, but my main focus is the kitchens, mainly due to the Scandinavian market is very focused on everyone wants what everyone else has = mid century, so the market for non danish current design is very small.

I think 9 out of 10 magazine editorials have a Swan or an Egg and Eames or Wegner CH24.

If you need any danish design I should be able to source it, pretty easily.

My mother has something like the serving tray Hampton posted from a high street shop and the quality is fine.

Yes, there is definitely a hole in the market for someone who wants to sell Danish furniture at a reasonable price. I keep thinking I need to make a side trip to Copenhagen when I visit family in London, at least to look for several smaller items I'd like to have.

I think the way forward (for me at least) would be sourcing things on request.

What are you looking for, there's a couple shop in London who sells vintage danish design, at the same price as in Copenhagen.

That's good to know. I'm mostly looking for smaller things, like a hat rack/shelf, side tables, floating shelves/night stands, Digsmed kitchen items... oh, and teak vikings smile.gif

http://www.alfiesantiques.com/ has old poster etc. and I'm pretty sure there a shop on Protobello rd. which sells danish design as well.


Let me know if you go to Copenhagen, some of the things you are looking for can be found at swap meets etc.
