My Collection is Growing.....

So I have been super obsessed with Mid-Century Modern/Eames/Danish everything (but most especially furniture) for almost a year now. I have been mostly buying little things here and there at Flea Markets or Garage Sales. But recently I was looking around Craigs List and found an ad for a guy selling a bunch of Mid-Century Modern Furniture. I decided I would check it out. He ended up being the coolest guy who had the coolest apartment full of AHHHMAAZING furniture...AND 3 huge storage units full as well. He is an avid collector and his girlfriend was getting sick of it all so he was looking to downsize. I also found out he has a book deal with a major publisher to write a book all about Danish and Mid-Century furnishings..coooolllll... So I ended up buying this table...of which there is only one more (known of) in the United States. It is a Danish designer who never ended up selling his stuff in the U.S. It has two leaves to extend it super long and the way the leaves are attached are super cool. I will have to take more pics sometime.

And I bought this lovely credenza/side bar also. My kitchen is super small so I was looking for something pretty like this to store extra dishes, etc... Sam (the guy who sold me the furniture) is suppose to email me the history and stories behind each piece which I will share when I get them.

Lots of space!!

Also, I got gorgeous flowers from a cute boy on my birthday....so that was nice :)

These fun vintage finds will be going up in my shop this week!

Hope you are all having a wonderful week ;) -- H


  1. I would be over the moon if my apartment had lovely pieces like that table and credenza. Mid-century modern items like that make me rather swoon-y.

  2. Such a beautiful table! The finish looks like it's in perfect condition. Congratulations on your score, it's gotta feel good :)

  3. *gasp* that table... that side board... they're GORGEOUS! drool. awesome finds.

  4. Thanks! Yes, I am quite happy I found the seller. Gotta love Craigslist! :)
