Maybe Etsy is the place to go.
This guy (gal?) makes some nice looking lamps:

Kind of loving the bow and arrow lamp. Had no idea they created one-offs otherwise I would have grabbed one instead of the regular lamp.

 

 

And I've always wanted this:

 

Going to be an interesting night.

I would think that would take you well out of ikea territory (not the $9.99 special, but beyond the 40-60 range of their less-flimsy lamps Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
)

But...it doesn't seem like there is much out there until you hit 5-600+ (with emphasis on the +). There are places that will sell you a faux-gilded, rubbed bronze, version of an Ikea lamp for $150, but not a lot else.

From the pictures I have seen of her future apartment, one of the Poul Henningsen glass floor lamps seems like it would fit in really well, but those are many times more expensive (especially if you go with the larger PH4.5/3.5).

How about this? On sale for less than $200.

Those are cool, one of my friends in completely obsessed with BDDW, but they're pricey so hearing about it has not turned into seeing it.

Their stuff is pretty expensive - that cabinet is 22K I think - but I consider it fair value as the design resonates with me and the manufacturing is impeccable. And since my place looks like their showroom, it's an easy fit.

 

They also stand by their work. My lamp developed a small crack in the bowl due to humidity I think and they told me to bring it back and pick another off the floor. This was six years after I bought it.

I like those stools. I think they'd look good in my place. I bought some inexpensive-by-SF-standards wine barrel stave stools that I think are pretty cool but they are less than 100% comfortable, as we found out after receiving them.

Lefty, the craftsmanship looks impeccable. Did you end up doing a lot of Mastercraft pieces as well?
post #2246 of 4041

Not yet. We put everything in a holding pattern and decided to live in the space for a bit. I might try to grab a few things tonight if the prices are decent.

So is the BDDW sale invite-only? I am going to regret going direct to Lindsay Adelman instead of going through BDDW just to get on the list if so...

Also doesn't help that I am travelling this week for work... hmmm.
post #2248 of 4041

It is. I don't think I can get down there to preview, so may not buy something I can't examine.

 

THIS IS A LIVE NO RESERVE AUCTION. 
NO TEXT BIDS, NO INTERNET BIDS, NO WRITE-IN BIDS. 
YOU MUST BE PRESENT TO BID.
ALL ANIMALS WILL SELL.
 
Alongside cattle and sheep we will also be auctioning approximately 100 items of mismatched, scratched, dented, 
preowned, weird, fun, and odd furniture objects and prototypes.
 
THIS IS A FAST PACED EVENT AND THE LOTS WILL SELL QUICKLY.
PLEASE READ THESE IMPORTANT RULES AND NOTES
THIS IS AN INVITATION ONLY EVENT. 
 
You must pre-register to be put on the list and to receive your bidder number, no exceptions!
Please register ASAP as seats are limited and we expect to fill up fast. 
During the event the objects will not be available for inspection. 
It is recommended that you preview items before the auction. 
 
ALL BIDS ARE FINAL. NO RETURNS OR CANCELLATIONS. 
 
Measure your elevator if you are buying big items!
 
PAYMENT IN FULL AND DELIVERY/STORAGE ARRANGEMENTS MUST BE MADE BY THE EVENING'S END. 
 
There will be delivery companies present at the auction.
Your credit card submitted with registration will be billed 
with sales tax added unless you provide a tax exempt form.
This is an auction, not a party.
Talking or disrupting the auctioneer will get you kicked out on the street and beaten by cowboys. 
You are allowed only one pre-registered guest and they are allowed to bid on your paddle. 
If you are not able to come, you may send a representative to serve as a proxy bidder. 
That person must be pre-registered by you in order to bid on your behalf.

That sounds like a good move. I've been taking my time with my study and being able to let changes soak in has been a lot more satisfying than doing it all at once.

I'm thinking about picking up this teak chair to use at my desk. I'm going to go look at it in the shop in a few days. It's not by any known designer - just says it's by a Danish carpenter/joiner. Price is $500 - does that seem fair? It has been restored and has a new (quality) leather seat.

 

I don't know much about furniture - certainly not about the craftsmanship that goes into it - but I do know the design of this one is quite obviously borrowed from Wegner's The Chair smile.gif Where the wood joins in the back of the chair isn't as elegant; it just comes together in a straight line. The curves also aren't quite as beautiful, perhaps. Still looks very, very good, I think.
