Happy Holidays & Merry Christmas!

Have a wonderful holiday weekend, no matter what, or if you celebrate this time of year.

We'll be celebrating Christmas with our family locally and anxiously awaiting our baby's birth...any day now.

Mid Century Furniture Designs I Haven't Seen Before.

It's always fun to come across a mid century modern furniture design I have not seen.  Just when you feel like you've seen it all, something different pops up. It's exciting to know there is still a lot I do not know.

Check out this dresser and chest on Ebay.  At $495 a piece, I think that's  a great deal.  Here in So. Cali you'd be looking at $1000 + per piece.  Well, OF COURSE these are in Missouri. I'm convinced this is where all the incredible mid mod pieces hide out.  

Ah, just check out that gorgeous detail......woweeee

The seller does not note a maker but says it's similar to Kent Coffey's Perspecta line.  Eh, kind of.  Anyone know about this design?

Incredible Mid Century Rispal France Floor Lamp

Check out this unbelievable lamp by Rispal, France on Ebay.   

Wow right?  Current bid is at $910.00 

On another note, I'm still waiting for baby.  2 weeks to go but he could come any day now.  We are so ready and the waiting is just killing me.  

Happy Holidays!

Our Vintage Modern Baby Nursery.

Drum roll pleeeease....finally our baby boy's nursery is complete.  I am so happy with how it turned out. I had a picture of it in my mind and I dare say this is spot on or perhaps a little better than I even imagined.   A perfect mix of old and new!  

I started planning baby's nursery about 3 months into my pregnancy and once I knew we were having a boy the hunting & purchasing began.  It took months to pull it all together but, phew, it's done!  Now we just need our sweet baby boy!

What do you think?

Mid Century Modern Sofa.

We bought this gorgeous sofa today.  I think it will replace our mid century sofa w/ attached table in the front room - though my husband loves that one.  I think this one wins the coveted space.  I just love the color and arm detail.

The sofa is not out of my Explorer yet, as we need help to move it.  At almost 9 months pregnant I cannot move something this big, even though I can't stand not getting it in the house ASAP!
Update 1/5/2012, sadly it does not work in our space. It's too large for the entry.  It fits but messes up the flow of my other pieces.  I am having a hard time accepting that I have to sell this but some lucky new owner will love it. Off to my Etsy shop it goes.....sigh.....
