RETRO FINDS: More Antiquing

photo(6) I just can't seem to stop myself from popping in to antiques stores lately. Sometimes shopping for clients or myself or just getting inspired.  Last weekend, I made a lightning fast trip to New York but still managed to drop in to Olde Good Things in Chelsea. They were pricey but had some great things.  The above chair is a Marcel Breuer Wassily Chair in beige leather.

[Walnut Table] I drooled over this table and matching bench in black walnut with steel legs.  Similar to the dining tables from Hudson Furniture.


[Danish Modern] Set of 6 Cool Danish Modern chairs.   The back on these chairs is really interesting.

[Eames Era Fiberglass Chairs] The blue fiberglass shell side chairs would add a nice pop of color in an informal dining area with a Saarinen table.  And the arm chair on casters would be great at a home office...I would replace the cushion though.


[Reclaimed Urban] Urban farm table with industrial machine legs.  This table would make a great desk and I love the pairing of industrial legs with a reclaimed wood top.  I was digging the chairs as well.


[Polished Chrome Pendant] This pendant would work nicely over the Saarinen table and fiberglass chairs described earlier.

[More Industrial] Architectural Grill - I am thinking cool wall decor.  And vintage file cabinets for the office.  Why not new?  The patina and maybe I can make people think that I have been in business for ages.


[Leather Pillows] You will be seeing more of these in contemporary and modern settings.  I especially like the idea of pairing large woven leather pillows on an Italian style sectional.
