    I found that Newson Cappellini the day it was listed. We DO NOT need another blowup spot for furniture.

    I hate you guys.

    And answer my PM Matt. Damn you.

    Those of you who've bought furniture from ebay, what's the best way to have it shipped? What's this Greyhound business? I didn't even know Greyhound does shipping.

    About 10-15X what I would pay for one, I love these old tanker desks.

    If you find a beat up one, they can be repainted with car paint (enamel would work as well as urethane at a fraction of the cost and trouble) and look really amazing.

    I have a favorite search with all the brands that I'm fond of i.e. (cappellini, "poltrona frau", emeco, etc.). Formatting it in that fashion will search multiple terms simultaneously. A lot of this stuff would probably fall under the midcentury/"eames era"/"danish modern"/mcm searches.
