Borge Mogensen Siborg Bookcase - $495
Amazing Danish teak bookcase by Børge Mogensen for Søborg. A perfect example of Mogensen's solid simplistic design. Very sleek and modern. The teak woodgrain is incredible and the shelves feature an awesome beveled edge. It's so hard to find a great bookcase of this size, and this is probably the best one I have ever had.

Vintage Foo Dog Dining Table - $1500
Wow!! Beautiful foo dog dining table, unlike anything I have ever seen. This is truly a unique piece. It is ultra high quality with heavy stone / concrete hand painted foo dogs, brass and copper cross section, solid brass cone finials, and a heavy, thick, beveled glass top. This table is stunning and would create a dramatic moment in your dining room. This is a designer piece and was retrieved from a lovely estate with high quality furnishings. Purchased in NYC 30 years ago. It would blend beautifully with Hollywood regency, modern, or traditional decor. I realized later that when I took pictures with the glass, I had the food dogs facing the wrong way. They should face outward. This is a unique opportunity!
Set of 4 Maurizio Tempestini for Salterini Design Radar Chairs and Nesting Tables - $1500
This is easily the most impressive set of patio furniture I have ever had! Designed by Maurizio Temptestini for Salterini, the “radar” chairs are the epitome of mid century modern design. They are wrought iron and quite well made. The chairs are on “bouncing” bases which makes them all the more comfortable. This set includes three classic radar chairs and a rare oval shaped chair. Oblong in shape, I have only seen one other example of this chair. The set also includes three nesting tables which serve as the perfect place to put your cocktail. I think this is the best Salterini set on the market right now, and certainly the best priced set. This set could use a fresh coat of paint (but no rust) and will last a lifetime. Don’t let this set get away!
Modern Grey Pottery Planters
Awesome set of five heavy pottery planters. Very sculptural in design. The glaze is a metallic grey and is quite beautiful. These can be used indoor or out. I am not sure how "vintage" these are, but I think they have some age to them. They would certainly blend in well with mid century decor.
Large smooth SOLD
Pair of small smooth $50
Pair of textured $50
Set of 4 Drexel Declaration Chairs by Kipp Stewart - $350
The Drexel “Declaration” line designed by Kipp Stewart is one of my favorite collections of the mid century era. This dining set is a great example of Stewart’s masterful design. The chairs are sculptural masterpieces with beautiful solid walnut frames and excellent attention to detail. They are beautiful from every angle and feature angled back legs and curved backs with inlaid diamonds. The table is equally impressive. The simple, modern design allows the walnut woodgrain to be the start of the show. With two large leaves, this table extends to be huge and comfortably seat eight. I am willing to sell the chairs and table separately. If you want to seat more than four, I would recommend finding two cool captains chairs or some Declaration chairs to match. There is a lot you can do with this set!

Vintage Iron Butterfly Chairs - $99 each
Four iron butterfly chairs. Iconic mid century modern pieces. These add instant style to any patio or outdoor space! They even work well inside. Great lines and lots of potential for these! $99 each
Elephant Grey Herman Miller Fiberglass Armchairs by Charles and Ray Eames, a Pair - $595
The iconic Eames chair is probably one of the most recognized designs of the era, and these two chairs are great examples of the classic design. The elephant grey color is one of the rarer colors Herman Miller offered. These date back to the 1950’s and were originally in the Detroit International airport. With molded fiberglass that hugs your body, these chairs are really comfortable. They would be great as occasional chairs in a living room or as captain’s chairs in a dining room. One of the chairs has a small fracture in the fiberglass on the bottom right edge of the seat. The fracture is not very noticeable and doesn’t take away from the beautiful design of the chairs. Now is your chance to own classic mid century design!
Dimensions: 25” wide, 23” deep, 31.5” tall, 17” seat height
Mid Century Renzo Rutili for Johnson Furniture Co. Buffet - $545
Wow! This mid century modern buffet design by Renzo Rutili for Johnson Furniture Co. has an incredible design. Made of solid cherry wood, this piece features excellent craftsmanship. The woodgrain burls and looks alive when the light hits it. The handles feature brass accents. May favorite part of this piece is the two front legs that angle forward and sculpt around the bottom edge of the casing. This piece is very versatile and would make a great buffet or media cabinet.
Dimensions: 59” wide, 20” deep, 30.5” tall
