OK, this might not be Vintage Modern but it could be! It's just reads that are cut and assembled in such a way that this amazing plant stand (I assume) is produced. It looks very much like a Harry Bertoia or Isamu Noguchi inspired piece but it's really just a really cool specific geometric shape...that happens to be kinda magical. Check it out, as well as a lot more cool stuff available at a couple local Antique Malls, inside!
...at Treasure Aisle antique mall.
Cool right? I so almost brought this home with me. I was thinking about placing a white globe
light in the middle of this but I don't really have a good place to display something like that.
What sucks is that I can't find anything on the web like it. I'd love to know more about it.
Not Broyhill Brasilia but kind of a neat knock off! I like the danish modern handles on the lower
drawers. It's a little rough but I think it would clean up nice and the booth has a crazy 40% off
sale right now AND lots of other neat Vintage Modern goodies!
Digging this great tractor seat bar stool. If there had been a set of three or four...I probably
would be blogging about the cool bar stools I brought home from the antique mall this evening!
More "Brasilia" like stuff at Treasure Aisle. This is the Perspecta line by Kent Coffey. I once
had a dresser exactly like this GIANT. I still have the mirror! It too is a bruiser. This is the first
time I've seen the commode. It's a great looking little side table with some storage to boot.
...at the Big Bend Antique Gallery antique mall.
Nice long low "Mad Men" sofa. It's got a neat wood accent trim piece all along the top edge
and reversible seat cushions with a flower print on one side. It looked to be in pretty good
shape and was priced very reasonably. Need a sofa? Might want to get over there ASAP!
Since you're going to be moving large items (you are going to snatch up that sofa and the
bedroom stuff next door, right?) anyway...you might as well pick yourself up a Heywood
Wakefield "Dogbone" diningroom set. It's got some bumps and bruises but is priced
appropriately. No, this isn't the set I spotted a few months ago at an estate sale and it's a lot
cheaper than the asking of that set.
That Eames LCM looks familiar. I've seen it at Gus' shop, 11th Street Antique And Modern in
Soulard. There are two of the chrome plated wire chairs and I almost bought them just for the
bases. I'd love to put them on my own pair of Eames style shell chairs.
Yup, another Curtis Jere and a brutalist style forest metal art. The Jere is signed but unlike
mine...no tag. No idea who created the copper forest. Looks pretty cool though. Totally
dig the sailboats! The frame is in black and white shiny lacquer.
...and on to the Kenrick antique mall.
Lots of retro tables. The red an white one in the first photo was at the same estate sale as
the Heywood Wakefield Dogbone set. God...I get around TOO MUCH. I feel a little dirty.
I'll always have a soft spot in my dirty little heart for these Chromecraft style tables.
Lots of good retro stuff at the Kenrick antique mall. Need an old school telephone? How
about a pink ashtray on a stand....with attached planter? No? then surely these soda shop
stools will strike your fancy!
Russel Wright in both Iroquois Casual and Stubenville. Some of the Stubenville lugged bowls
weren't marked. I don't know if I've ever seen this before. I've got most of these pieces already
so I didn't pick any of them up.
Nice! This is a great Heywood Wakefield student desk that has lots of character. It's been
around the block but still retains many of the qualities that one would want this desk for. It's
finish is shot but it's still sturdy and has lots of great storage options. I've always loved these
desks. If the Girlfriend didn't already have a great (Airflow) Hey / Wake desk I would have
brought this one home.
Another beautiful Kent Coffey piece. This is the first "The Forteller" piece I've seen but it's
got some nice lines and details. I think I made the seller a little nervous as I was moving some
of her things around to take the pics and I'm sure she was wondering what this guy in a pork
pie hat was doing taking pics of her stuff anyway! It's all good. Just here to help put these
orphaned pieces in new loving homes.
