Yes. The floor lamp now sits in my house. lefty

A little more obscure, but noticing they are selling in the thousands on 1stdibs, and showing up in interior mags, are Rougier lamps. They were Canadian made & many were sold locally here back in the early 80's. I've already nabbed a couple of pairs at the flea market for under a hundred bucks.

There's all kinds of obscure things from recent decades that are not just fabulous to have (the only reason you should really collect anyway), but good candidates for near future "next great things".

The 1970s for example.

A couple of reproductions from Ecart International, designed by Jean-Michel Frank and Adolphe Chanaux.

This wall unit is not bad at all. Good if you're in Houston - shipping is $$

I've taken a liking to older Globe Wernicke barrister bookcases. The ones made during the 1940's seem to be best and most minimalistic.

Some of the furnitures I have myself: Ax chairs by Hvidt & Mølgaard (the armless are quit rare. Unfortunately the pics I found doesn't give the the chair the credit it deserves..) Tivoli Lamp by Simon Henningsen, prudeced by Louis Poulsen And the always good loking Krenit Bowl by Herbert Krenchel Wegner´s CH22 And his CH25

Saw this in the window of Florian Papp: George Mulhauser desk chair for Plycraft. Kind of cool, but $8000. lefty

I don't suppose you have some idea of the size of that thing?


And would a normal mattress look ok on it?

Reason I ask is that I own a tig welder and wouldn't mind having one of these.I'm thinking polished aluminum sheet, I'm guessing that one is stainless.

Unfortunately my money printing press is still under construction so I don't quite have the $421,000 to buy one.

That thing is very slick. I'd definitely buy a well-made replica, but 421k is a little much for something you'll probably end up fucking on.

At least that's something YOU don't have to worry about.

What do you expect me to do on a bed? Sleep?

I'll get plenty of that when I'm dead.
