CanaDanish Modern? Who Knew That Canada Made Such Spectacular Vintage Modern Furniture? I Still Don't Have A Name For The Manufacturer Though. Can Anybody Help Out? Status: Mystery / Gone.
Sweet weekend score, right?! Have you ever seen a set like this before? I've only seen a piece similar to this at An Orange Moon in Chicago, but that was a buffet and while it did have a similar base, the details were different. No markings in the drawers for ID on it either.
The set is kinda crazy. It's a whole lot Mid Century Modern, a little bit Little House On The Prairie,
and somewhat Scandinavian. In the post by An Orange Moon,
43 years old just a couple days ago! It's got some wear and tear commensurate with it's vintage but it
still presents Very Well. And ErmahGod it's heavy. There's a lot of wood right there. Not pictured is
the HUGE mirror that joins the long low dresser. The tall chest has adjustable shelves, but all the
pins were broken. I've got some extra around here somewhere that I'll be putting in there.
It's a hell of an impressive set. Not for everybody. You'll need to have significant space to fill if you
wanna display these in your home. Standing in front of the chest, I can't see the top surface! But if
you have lots of stuff to hide...this is your piece! At one time this might have been the coolest place
to store your records, tapes and CDs but everybody just stores all that on their phone now...oh wait
wait...I mean Wrist Watch! I am so 15 minutes ago.
