No, Mr. Modtomic isn't planning a roadtrip to the Second City but I got bored poking around the StL. c-list and decided to challenge myself to find some bargains up north. One of the items I found right away is this lounge chair.
Do you know what it is...well, was...before it was painted? I don't even think the white paint is
that bad. I've never seen one painted so I'm guessing it's not original. It don't look too bad in
the pics. You gotta be wary of how it looks in person though. I'm pretty sure this is a Peter
Hvidt by France & Sons lounge chair. What do you think? If you're quick it may still be
available on the Chicago craigslist for the paltry asking of just $50! If you get it please let the
seller know you saw it here and let me know you got it! Send me some pics!
I also stumbled across this fine Scandinavian dining suite up North Side. I'm not such a big fan
of the shape of the dining table but I always like these table because of the tile insets. They aren't
just beautiful but it's a great idea and so practical! But the show stopper is those chairs. Only
the one is shown but the ad says there are four. They have a real Niels Moller look to them.
Also inlcuded for the $350 asking price, a nice place to store all your serving pieces. Don't let
the scratches scare you off, a little Watco Danish Oil will hide them nicely.
Don't know if this is a reproduction. Even if it is, those go for about $90 up to about $700.
This one is only $50 and that qualifies this as a bargain in my book. And it truly is an iconic
and stylish little stool. If it were here in St. Louis I'd be trying to pick it up tomorrow!
And if you are in the mood for some Broyhill Brasilia...there's a nice dining set in Skokie for
"make an offer". Oh, if only this were here in St. Louis! I'd be all over that! Make a good
offer (remember your craigslist karma!) and do it quick an maybe you'll score this great set.
The upholstery is even kinda groovy, yet conservative at the same time! I bet you could get this
9 piece set for less than $500. Bargain? Yes indeed!
