I’ve been trying to scan in a lot of the old books I’ve collected on Midcentury interiors. Here’s one of my favorites that I have. mid_1001

Craigslist: Matching Coffee Table and End Table – $250 (Midtown)

8 Nov

Large matching set coffee and end tables. Sturdy polished wood, a great set. Unique surfboard-style lip to the table top edges on each piece. American made Basset Furniture brand, 1960’s style, would look great in a Mid Century style home.

This fantastic set is also being sold in Midtown Sacramento. Only $250. Get it! (original post)

This listing is from awhile ago but says that there is a Yard Sale “Sunday 9-3.” Summer bummer, did I miss this? In other words, I cannot has that giant coffee table? Meh. MEH I SAY!

Living Room Inspiration

6 Sep

We can’t have a stone slab fireplace, ceiling to floor windows or 20′ tall ceilings but we’ll try and shove this style right into our teeny two-bedroom apartment above a chinese acupuncturist. Living the dream, I know.

This image is from a photo set on flickr of “Interiors from Armstrong.” It simply says “1950s living room with Calder-like mobile.” So that is to say – the mobile looks like a mobile made by the guy who invented mobiles.

Kagan coffee table – keep an eye out on craigslist! This style is always popping up for under $300.00. $10.00 Ikea vase, Calder mobile, and $480.00 grey tapered-leg repro couch from Urban Outfitters. Get it, girl.

So this set is a little too pricey for my liking but I’d like to share it because that couch is pretty fantastic looking. There’s one similar to it being sold on urban for about 480.00. Actually while I am speaking of such things chairs like the above are going on Urban for about 3 hundo as well. I remember looking about 6 months ago on their site for a bath curtain and not seeing any of this stuff-meh anyways
don’t get me wrong Urban is def not the place to start determining value in things and you will probably score a chair-sofa a lot cheaper than this one or from that store…I am just really excited to see a couch like this up on craigslist that isn’t in the upper ups.
