My obsession with all that is mid-century

Posted on Mon, 22 Oct 2007 by KiM

Hi my name is Kim and I’m addicted to everything mid-century…pretty much anything un-new. (That’s my new word). So when I came across a couple of online mid-century furniture stores I figured why not stray from the norm of what we usually post (being rooms) and showcase some furniture, of which each piece I covet.

Hi Kim,

Thanks for lovely website.. Every morning before I check my emails, I check your site and I am not even a profesional in this area but I just love it…(call it addiction).

here is a question, the credenza in the last two pictures; do you know who made this design, as I have both the credenza and the china cabinet with the same design.. and would love to learn more..

thanks in advance.

Oh no words for this post. Just beautiful. I’m speechless.

I think I might need that clear chair with green cushion. Yes, I’m pretty sure I do.

NY Muhtari, I do not know who designed the credenza but DAMN YOU for owning one AND the china cabinet!!! (kidding)

Jo, I thought of you today when I posted some lamps 🙂

I hate to break this to you, but most of this stuff is about as “mid-century” as Rubik’s Cubes and Gloria Gaynor.

wow!!!!!!!!! I love the red and white 2 seater couch/chair thingy. Love it. I am going to be working at an Antique Mall soon. I hope I get some goodies working there!!! 😉 Some un-new stuff for my un-new house. lol

Antique Mall??? OMG that would be a dream come true for me. Can’t wait to see all the cool un-new stuff you’ll be bringing home Jessie.

The credenza – I have a headboard with shelves to match it .. . it was purchased in 1961 or 62. Also, where in Austin would I best advertise a MINT Eames Lounge Chair from 1975? It is beautiful, and yes Virginia, there is a Santa Claus . . . it has rosewood as well!
