Flock of Colorful Vintage 1950s Chairs - Lots of Fiberglass

What do you call an assortment of great 1950s armchairs?  Bevy?  Flock?  Herd?  Whatever the description you prefer, there is no denying this is a cool and colorful, um, flock of chairs!

Starting from the left.....

First is a grey swivel fiberglass armchair.  Great graining to the fiberglass.  Manufactured by the Douglas Furniture Co. of Chicago (and signed with a paper label).

Second is a great Canadian modernist chair.  Rock solid maple - this chair has some weight!  Salmon vinyl upholstery that is in great shape - just needs a good cleaning.  Wonderful design.  Signed.

Third is a blue-ish Krueger fiberglass chair.  Again, great graining in the fiberglass.  Oustanding condition - looks like new.  Signed on the bottom. 

Fourth is a yellow Krueger fiberglass chair.  Very good condition.  Signed on the bottom.

$65 each.  Furnish your apartment or house with three or four and get a quantity discount. :)

The blue and yellow fiberglass chairs are SOLD.  Thanks, Rachel @ Chicago!

The grey fiberglass chair is SOLD.  Thanks, Bridget @ Chicago!

Cute Little Danish Inspired Side Table

What a cute little side table.  Perfect for next to your favorite mid century chair - would even make a nice bedside table for a low platform bed - and to set your end-of-day drink, family pic, vase w/flowers, or, yes, even a vintage fan!

Solid wood with a laminate top (don't worry about spilled drinks!), and gently splayed legs.

23" wide, 16" deep, 15' high.

SOLD.  Thanks, Michelle @ Oak Park!

Danish Modern Walnut Tulip Lamp with Spun Spaghetti Shades

What a neat combination - Danish Mod with a dash of 70s Chic!  This lamp represents the bridge between 60s Danish-inspired decor to the 70s disco/plastic revolution.

This impressive lamp is in fabulous condition, and well-constructed, too:  steel base and pole, walnut "leaves," spun spaghetti fiberglass shades, and brass-plated lamp sockets and accents.

Works well (just add bulbs!) and you've got both functional lighting and a stunning conversation piece!

76" tall (over six feet!) and 24" in diameter at its widest point.


Egats! More Eames - Esque Krueger Fiberglass Arm Chairs! Color: Ivory

We don't know where to put all these fiberglass arm chairs!  We've just sourced another pair of Krueger arm chairs - this time in a nice palette-neutral ivory color.

Excellent condition - all of the original shock mounts are present, and ready to add some modern pizzazz to your decor!

SOLD.  Thanks, Dan @ Chicago!
