Adorable Little Chair

Behold the new addition to the shop (or soon to be):

MCM Chair 1

MCM Chair 2

Isn’t he cute??  I’m not sure if I will remodel this little guy or sell as is.  Any suggestions?  I was thinking black paint and new cushion.  But then again, I love the wood and the teal vinyl.  Hmmm…  Let me know if you have any interest in this oh-so-cute MCM chair (refinished or not) and I will keep you all updated on what I do with it!

I did end up leaving the chair as is after a good cleaning, and  a girl immediately fell in love with it and snatched it up!

I went back to the thrift store and those paintings were still there.  AND, they were 1/2 off!  So, I snagged them and cleaned them up a bit.  Now for sale in the shop!  Check them out!

Roadside Find

June 8, 2009 at 7:36 am (Projects) (, , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , )

On a quick drive to Peoria yesterday to pick up some new lawn chairs I spotted the oddest, cutest little chair on the side of the road in Kewanee.  On my way home it was still there, so I quickly threw it in the back of the truck and sped away!

It’s so ugly right now, but I think there is a lot of cuteness potential under there!  That storage could be very useful too!  Some scrubbing and some new fabric… maybe even some paint?  Mid century lovers should love this one when its finished, so keep your eyes peeled because it will be another shop addition!

Mid Century Bug

June 5, 2009 at 11:04 am (Inspiration) (, , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , )

I have it- the mid century bug- that is!  I am usually into vintage and antique just a bit older than MCM style, but lately I have been crazy for some of the furniture styles.  I’d like to think that I am a good enough stylist to incorporate a bit of many styles to make an eclectic, yet cohesive home.  A few things that I am loving:

The Marcel Bruer Wassily leather lounge chairs are calling my name!

This Barwa lounger would be so comfy on a patio or in the backyard, even better if it wasn’t purple!

This guy would be perfect painted black and sitting next to my new-old patio set in the backyard.  Then I would have a place to lounge in the sun!  (I am actually really thinking about this one!)

This is my all time favorite couch.  I want one someday so bad I can smell the leather!  😉

I love these Platner style outdoor chairs.  Actually, I like anything wire mesh or Bertoia-esque. 

An a bit of an older note- I am still on a hurried hunt for a couple of these old style metal lawn chairs.  Ebay is a bit too pricey, so if anyone out there knows of any for sale…keep me posted!

Any style, any color, as long as they are similar to eachother, because I am going to paint them red anyway!

Also, do you notice a trend with me and chairs?  And currently with me and outdoor furniture?  I really need to expand what I look at! 😉

Mid Century Coffee Table

May 7, 2009 at 11:17 am (Shop Items) (, , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , )

I have a gorgeous Mid Century Modern Coffee Table to add to the shop!  The table is low and long, and gorgeous wood.  The triangle pattern in the center is neat and the legs are that great MCM shape.  The table is in great vintage condition but for one small mark in the top.  It is refinish-able and would be perfect!  Let me know if you are interested! 🙂

Here are a few of our first big items for sale in the new shop.  There are a few others in the works that needed face-lifts, but these beauties were great as-is.  Let me know if you are interested, although these are awful large to ship.  Mid Century lovers should swoon for them!

The cute little fiberglass chair is a gorgeous robin’s egg blue.  It says Krueger Metal Products, Green bay Wisconsin on its tag.  The hutch is gorgeous and spacious.  It has two shelves behind the glass door, two cupboards below, and three drawers, one of which has dividers.  The oval details on the doors are really cool.  The tag says Gibson Furniture Co. 

Let me know if you are interested! 🙂  And, stay tuned, there should be a MCM coffee table and a funky table and chairs by the end of the week as I get them cleaned up!

Chair Love Some More

March 31, 2009 at 8:02 am (Inspiration) (, , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , )

This weeks chair love comes early!  I spotted this beauty on Apartment Therapy earlier in the week.  The picture is of the store front of the Pico Modern Furniture shop.  What a pretty place!  And, great taste in chairs, I might add.

 

The shop is described as unique and unusual.  I love it already!  And, I want the chair! 🙂
