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.

Action Office!
With the winning combination of a birch top and a yellow cord management panel, I am very pleased with my new desk.

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 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.

That looks very nice. Would be great to also see it in context with the egg chair sometime, if you plan to put them together in the living room.

Bought this sconce
at a second-hand shop in Annemasse, near Geneva, yesterday. I see two on 1stdibs right now--one dealer thinks it's French and the other thinks it's Italian. I'm leaning toward a French light with Murano shades.

Anybody know the designer/manufacturer?

I may have an addition to this thread. There is a guzzini arc lamp that I am eyeing, but the dealer figured out yesterday what it was..drats. So close. We'll see how they price it.

I put new items in my home for a while amd then I take them to the shop after a while,. i always like to say I collect for orher people... Which keeps the collection unlimited too!

- 27 Oct 2012

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.

Bent Falk Stove
Got this earlier this month off of CL. It was totally dead stock Rais stove by Bent Falk. Couple got it for free from a guy years ago and never got around to installing it. Even came with five brand new fire tools and a wall bracket. Above the fire box is a stove for pizzas, roasts, etc. Really happy to have it for the winter.

did you
have to build the surround for it? Wonderful

Thanks. The surround was brick...
I bought the slate and had a guy put it in.

I did something similar
in my last home w/ soapstone. Loved it

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.

Did I mention it is beat?

Another bud vase
for my collection of oddball ceramics. Loved the color of the glaze and style. Unsigned but I swear I've seen these somewhere.

- 30 Oct 2012

I don't know where you live,
But here in Belgium there was a guy who made a lot of these, Antonio Lampecco.

- 30 Oct 2012

I live in the united states
Southern California, it looks close though! I do realize that there are tons of people who made ceramics like this. I have many different signatures on things.

Don Shoemaker tray.
Picked up this Don Shoemaker tray from an estate sale that had a lot of MCM furniture that was way over priced. I saw the tray sitting amongst some other odds and ends, picked it up for $15.

- 01 Nov 2012

I did not expect to find at my local Goodwill.

Fornasetti bookends $2.52 on half price day no less...

If anyone knows the name of this design I'd appreciate it...I haven't been able to find it so far.

Love the woodstove. Could have used that one last week with storm
'Sandy' devouring NY. Power is back on now but what a mess it has been...
Did manage to visit the Guggenheim and the Met today to calm my scattered
visual nerves.

I recently purchased a pair of Asko Bonanza lounge chairs designed by Esko Pajamies. I only paid $60 for the pair

no pics yet
of the Brown & saltman dresser (8 drawer, I confirmed). But I have refinished the drawers. I think I will probably keep it.

I did pick up 3 Georges Briard coffee or occasional tables the other day. Georges Briard is one of those love/hate things for me. They are pretty fabulous, but not really to my tastes.
