The last thing you acquired......#17
Picked up this George Nelson for Nessen Lighting pendant Beehive lamp. This lamp was designed in 1969 and i'm told was only produced for three years.

Update on the Nelson X-Leg table
This is the follow-up to another "last thing" post. In #14, I found this table, but only the legs were salvageable. I had a local shop (that, incidentally, does a lot of custom work for HM) laminate me a new top in walnut. Here's the finished table.

I don't know if I would qualify what you did as upcycling, Tom Ado, but
rather, a necessary repair with vintage lamps. Original wiring....is dangerous, as illustrated by what happened. Had the frying occurred at the ceiling connection, it could have easily been much worse...
You did a nice job, the lamp still looks great, and is now safe to use.

Sadly
There are no labels on these. The woman I bought them from, said they were in the house since 1950. I also bought a first production rope edge with the dime imprint on the seat, that looked like it had never been sat in. These table def had some wear to them on the paint, and the rubber on the bottoms has some cracking but the finish looks original. I can post pics of the undersides but the labels are not there anymore.

Bought a beat beat beat set of Brown and saltman pieces by Mr. Keal. A 6 drawer dresser (I think, 8?) and what they call a blanket chest w/ 2 drawers. This is the design w/ the end to end aluminum pulls. Think I will have them professionally worked on.

They also had a Remploy cradenza that was much less beat but more money. Really nicely made but not the find that the other piece is. I will include pics later.

Thurston/Lightolier as the poster in that thread suggests? The quality doesn't seem right to me.

I agree, greavesy.
The japanese series are overpriced and the
'Berken' series contain more solid wood, are more playfull
and sympathetic in style and material.
But the japanese cabinets have a very graphic look, display a striking
visual balance, the veneers are really thick (I think way more than on the earlier
pieces)...
They are just the next in line, the newer generation, spun from the same mind with the same ideals concerning modularity, clarity in design and construction.

I have followed
this post for a while and it always interests me what can and does get found out there.

While I have not felt the need to share all changed when I had a call to buy some danish furniture.

Walking a round the house looking if "there is anything else you might like" i spotted this light.

Very much in a sad state with rice paper shade which had gone completely and smoke stained cord.

A quick trip to Denmark for some lime green fabric covered cord and a LE KLINT 172A shade

Voila my new reading light.

It had me so intrigued and I love it as it works entirely on gravity holding the arm against the cord and stopping the light from dropping out the fixture!

It's a sebaceous cyst. Basically a clogged oil duct. It can be drained, but it'll just fill back up. Sometimes it leaks and gets smaller for awhile but eventually grows bigger.

Thanks. We're concerned that a trip to the vet might be too stressful for her to handle. It's been ten years since she's been in the car. To keep things on-topic, I just ordered three sets of new shock mounts and some reproduction bases for my Eames shells. I'm all about keeping things original - but I'd rather the bases match and not have to worry about visually judging guests weight before letting them sit. Black/Walnut dowel bases for the orange and ochre sideshells (currently on an eiffel and stacking base), and a black/walnut rocker base for my dark green armshell (currently on a lowrod/cat's cradle base). Hopefully they'll arrive around the same time as the other things I ordered earlier this month during the Herman Miller sale (pic of my selections attached).

I love the juxtaposition of "classic" quilted leather on such a modern chair design. Also, you seem to have a rat in your house.

Yes, I love those heath cups, I have a suspicion my wife may ask me to keep them.

I already have a plycraft Eames knockoff that I will likely keep. This chair was a one owner baby, a bit rough, but honest rough. Where it counts (the upholstery) it's terrific.

I think the RAT is Lonborg. Agreement?

The table might be my best find, though. Hosken is not that well known I think but early and influential.

I had not heard of Hosken until now. Had I seen it at a thrift store I would have bought it immediately...it's quite attractive.

This is not a negative commentary on the craftsmanship, it looks well made...had it not been labeled I would have assumed it to be a home made jobbie.
