Simply type in Eames or Danish. Apparently those are the words to describe everything and anything made in the Mid-Century.

Do non-eBay sources count for this thread?
If so, I would add: http://www.betterlivingthroughdesign.com/
It's a daily visit for me, if for no other reason than to get ideas and see things that are drastically out of my price range.

I used to have thousnds of links to products and furniture of all kinds and price ranges, but my computer blew up a few weeks ago and I lost all of them. I have started collecting again, and pieces that I am currently smitten with that I have found on various sites include:
Couch: http://www.jaysonhomeandgarden.com/p...productid=4017



Dining table: http://www.jaysonhomeandgarden.com/p...productid=3587



Cabinets: http://www.betterlivingthroughdesign...lthaup_b2.html



Coffee table: http://www.plushpod.com/products/Neb...e-1308-33.html



Rug: http://www.dwr.com/product/floor-cov...anuscrit%20rug

If you want the furniture carefully shipped door to door, I would suggest Plycon Vanlines (you can also use Craters and Freighters, but they're generally more expensive). The seller does not have to do any packaging of the item -- it will typically be blanket-wrapped by the shipping company (actual crating is another option, though rather pricey).

Both of the above places will give you free shipping quotes rather quickly.

The Greyhound option is vastly cheaper, but (1) the seller has to do the packaging/wrapping (although the object does not have to be boxed), (2) the seller has to be willing to take the item to the Greyhound drop-off, and (3) you have to pick up the item at your nearest Greyhound terminal once it arrives. Note that not all of the terminals handle shipping services.

If you like Pop design, you should jump on this Artemide set designed by Vico Magistretti:

http://cgi.ebay.com/Artemide-Selene-...1%7C240%3A1318

The seller either has two complete sets or accidentally listed the auction twice. At any rate, the table alone (particularly in this color) is pretty rare, but it's even more unusual to find it with a matching set of chairs. There is no reserve on the auction, and so I bet it won't even go all that high.

Why waste time wading through all the junk on ebay, when you can just browse 1stdibs? No bargains to be had...but it's wall-to-wall, non-stop eye candy.

Sorry, but I find that to be something that would be more appropriate in kindergarten.


This would go well on my desk while mapping plans for world domination....

And "art deco." Everything from the 20th century constitutes art deco. Everything.

Maybe because its futuristic styling seems so familiar? One potential color scheme might be red and black. Maybe some recessed lighting.

If it comes with Shatner, I do not want it anymore.

You might consider the Picard, which comes in an exciting color spectrum ranging from beige to tan. If you want to go really crazy, you can special order it in "sand."

Assorted Maison Jansen items:

I do in fact. I aspire to my own airport with a huge portrait of myself in gold-braided military uniform.
