Home, Sweet Homes: Heather and David’s Carmichael Pad

8 Sep

So, this is a home tour that unfortunately got lost in the shuffle and kerfuffle of a Mimomito identity crisis. Thanks to the wonderful Heather and David for not sending rocks through our windows for taking so long to post this. It has likely been almost A YEAR since they welcomed us into their home to poke around and take photos. Thank you for your patience and kindness to allow us in your lives and beautiful home. I personally know that you both have added new items and pieces to your home, so perhaps this’ll be like a walk down memory lane, ha! Now, finally, Heather and David Hadley’s Home Tour.

Where is your home located?
Carmichael, Ca

When was your home built and when did you move in?
Built in 1957, bought home in 2010 / 3bd, 2.5ba 1800 SF

 Why did you choose your home?
Good neighborhood; the layout; original hardwood floors; updated kitchen and granite counter-tops; but most importantly (according to David) the game room with a 1970’s built-in bar.

 What attracted you to mid century design?
In my mid-20s, I rented an old one-bedroom apartment in Midtown Sac.  I fell in love with the mid-century original features.  It had a pink bathtub, elephant gray tiling and toilet, the kitchen was galley style and had stainless steel counter tops.  I embraced the vibe, and carried that feeling into our new home.

Community: Vincent’s mystery chair

8 Sep

This question was emailed to us with photos attached:

Hello,
Can you identify the attached chair, sorry, the attached photo of the chair?
Thanks,
Vincent

GreenChair1GreenChair2GreenChair3

Ahh, what a lovely chair, Vincent!

Immediately the things that stand out to identify this chair are the sculpted armrests and the thoughtfully attractive wood stretcher on its backside. These details are indicative of designer Folke Ohlsson of Dux.

“Folke Ohlsson moved to the US from Sweden in 1953, and established DUX, Inc. in San Francisco the same year. In 1959 he moved the company to Burlingame, California. His design is generally referred to as “Scandinavian Modern” but frequently gets categorized as “Danish Modern” or “Danish Teak”.

A popular designer of the late 1950s early 60s, and highly collectable, Folke Ohlsson has been credited for creating the concept of knock down furniture, or KD. This is furniture which can be flattened and assembled at its final destination which makes it less expensive to ship.

Folke Ohlsson passed away Oct. 23, 2002.” (via)

Dux ad

If you’re planning on selling the chair, I highly suggest you research further before you slap a big price tag with DUX on it – but if you’re going to keep the chair and love it, feel free to impress your friends with your “I believe it’s a piece by designer Folke Ohlsson” chair.

Book Shots: All about the wonders of chemistry

I found this really neat book thrifting the other day about chemistry. It has hilarious and cute illustrations about science.

I dont understand anything about it just that I like the way it looks!

I dont know if you guys remember that one time I showed you this expensive bootiful cat bed from Etsy? Eh? Eh?
…OK.
Well. Heres that same cat bed. Someone is selling it for a discount sans pillow cushion. I hope that doesnt mean its bad or something. I imagine if your cat was too fancy for it you could just use it to prop up your little feeties or something?
Or put a plant on it. That is usually my solution for all complicated furniture solutions. CAN MY FEET GO HERE. CAN I PUT PLANT HERE?!
Oh yes. OK. Then I will purchase.

That price is for the pair. Seller states that these rugs are from pottery barn. I dont know if that means they are some good quality Kilim, so maybe give it a once over if thats something you are concerned about.
