If only I had....

Wow, If only I had two grand to shell out on these amazing chairs. This is a great example of everything I love about furniture all combined into one perfect piece, and they are a set of six!
Lucite, brass trim, and crazy maroon 1980's fabric. I am not sure it gets much better than this. This set of chairs, was designed by Leon Frost. Whom did a lot of similarly extraordinary furniture, with glass, brass, and acrylic sculpture. Similarly styled to such names as Parzinger, Karl springer and of course, the ever popular Milo Baughman who did multiple lines for Thayer Coggin. Happy weekend, and as always Happy hunting !

Speaking of Chrome... I just fell in love

So my usually scouting had me looking for chrome objects to glorify my somewhat newly decorated Seventies Love Pad. Along that search I came upon this Amazing George Kovacs floor lamp. Probably closer to the early 1980's, rather than the Shag-adelic look . I love its straight forward extremely boxy design. Almost a reproduction of a reproduction. Seeing as this style was quite popular in the early 60's with the floor to ceiling version that actually was spring loaded to fit almost anywhere. Well I don't know about you, but I love this piece and for $125 its a steal.
Happy Hunting!

and Now, for something completely different!

So I am quite aware how overly Kitsch early 90's design can be. however, if you may or may not have noticed designers are already introducing these over stylistic design choices and typically over scaled pieces into modern home decor, AGAIN. I give you this coffee table fore example. Now granted, place in the home of say Bernie Lowmax AKA (weekend at Bernie's) could very well be called bad taste or even Tacky. However place this piece which is solid travertine and quite luxurious at heart, in the home of say. ....Bill Sofield, Could very well be a great design statement. The bones are there. The color is neutral, Its to tables which can be arranged in a multitude of ways, and the angles create sharp geometric presence.
