10 Piece Mid Century Modern Walnut Dining Set by Foster McDavid - $1495
Wow! This is probably the most impressive dining set I have ever had. It includes a dining table with two leaves, eight dining chairs (two with arms), and a buffet. Designed and manufactured by Foster-McDavid, this set is amazing in every way. The table is large and surfboard-shaped with amazing walnut woodgrain. With two leaves, it extends to easily seat eight. The eight chairs are solid walnut with cane backs. They are very reminiscent of the “Play Boy” chair by Jens Risom. They feature sleek, modern design with slightly angled backs. The buffet is stunning with walnut casing and sculpted bow tie drawer pulls. The doors have cane insets which perfectly compliment the chairs. Pair top-notch oiled walnut with incredible mid century design, and you’ve got a winning combo. This set is ready to go and would complete your dining room. Consider the price you are paying per piece, and this is the deal of the year!

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!
Pair of Mid Century Blue Tile Top Steel Tables - $295
This pair of mid century tile top blue tables is awesome! The turquoise blue tiles vary in color creating a beautiful design and the bases are a sleek steel that don’t take away from the beauty of the tiles. They are very reminiscent of Paul McCobb. They would be great to use as occasional tables, end tables, or even small night stands.
Dimensions: 15” X 15” and 16” tall
Vintage Musical Note Wall Sculpture by Curtis Jere - $395
Calling all music lovers! This vintage modern wall sculpture by Curtis Jere features music notes and would be the perfect gift for a musician. It is brass and black metal and has a wavy design that reminds me of jazz. It is signed “C. Jere.”
Dimensions: 60” X 24” and 2.5” deep
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.

Pair of small smooth $60
Pair of textured $75
Set of 4 Drexel Declaration Chairs by Kipp Stewart - $395
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!

Adrian Pearsall for Craft Associates High Back Lounge Chair - $495
Wow! This high back lounge chair designed by Adrian Pearsall for Craft Associates is crazy cool. A mid century modern classic, this chair features an oiled walnut base and arm rests, and a very sculptural design. The design is imaginative and playful yet sleek and modern at the same time. This chair would be a conversation piece and focal point in your living room. It needs to be reupholstered and the walnut base could use some attention. These don’t pop up often!
Dimensions: 30” wide, 29” deep, 54” tall
Elephant Grey Herman Miller Fiberglass Armchairs by Charles and Ray Eames, a Pair - $650
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
Vintage Hans Wegner J16 Rocking Chair - $395
Made in Denmark and designed by the famous Danish designer Hans Wegner, this rocking chair is an excellent example of Scandinavian design. It is large in scale and very comfortable to rock in. It features warm birch wood and has beautiful lines. The design is modern and sleek but has subtle curves that make it interesting and signature of Wegner. The seat is a woven rush. This rocker would be the perfect addition to a nursery, or use it to create a reading nook. There is a stain on the seat but it is otherwise in very good condition. Signed on the underside of the arm. This is a great deal!
Dimensions: 25” wide, 30” deep, 43” tall, 16” seat height
Mid Century Renzo Rutili for Johnson Furniture Co. Buffet - $795
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
Vintage Industrial Desk by Raymond Loewy for Brunswick - $199
This desk is so cool! The industrial materials compliment Raymond Loewy’s futuristic design. This desk has funky lines with “X” shaped legs and an angled privacy panel. The top is a formica designed to look like stone. The drawers provide for great storage. This desk is a nice size and could be used in many spaces. It has wear consistent with age which I think adds to the industrial design.
Dimensions: 48” wide, 30” deep, 29” tall
Large Vintage Modern Burl Wood Dining Table - $595
This vintage modern burl wood dining table is huge! It features a minimalist parsons design and lets the wood shine. The wood is a burled olive wood with crazy patterns and a beautiful, warm color. This table has two large leaves and extends to be monumental in size. Seat the whole family at one place during holidays! The design is in the style of Milo Baughman. There is some wear, an the price is reflective of that, but it is in over all pretty good condition and ready to be used. This table would mesh well with Hollywood regency décor and make a statement in your dining room!
Dimensions: 67” wide, 39” wide, and 29” tall, plus two 22” leaves
