Mimomito’s got friends.

10 Dec

midcentury mobler

Our buds over at Mid Century Mobler want to offer readers of Mimomito a discount on all online orders. Specializing in Danish and American mid century modern furniture, you’ll discover stunning pieces imported to the US from England and Denmark. Shop MidCenturyMobler.com and get 15% OFF all items using code MIMO15.

Remember Mid Century Mobler? We’ve featured Julian’s SF apartment in our Homes, Sweet Homes feature here. We’ll be featuring a new piece from McMobler a few times a month, and in turn Mimomito will get kicked down some cheese when a reader users our code. It’s a treat for us all, and any money we get will go to paying our WordPress and domain fees! (This means no more awkward begging and panhandling at meet-ups.)

Around the house: It’s beginning to look somewhat like Christmas!

6 Dec

Finally got a big puffy Christmas tree up in our apartment, and our tall friend Thomas helped up string our lights and put our tree topper on for us. Alan and myself like a tree to really lord over us – showering us in holiday spirit. This year I decided to go through the dubious task of making really quick origami butterflies as ornaments. I like a monochromatic and simplistic tree, myself – not droopy with mismatched ornaments.
Our little apartment feels so cozy, finally. I come home all sad and cold from the dismal outdoors to my warm cave. Alan has been perfecting ham-hocks and beans with a side of collard greens. LET’S HUNKER DOWN, Y’ALL. IT’S OFFICIALLY WINTER.

Happy Campers: My kitchen cabinet and Eames chair!

28 Nov

Spotted this sucker on Craigslist for $50.00 and had to swoop. I had been looking for this exact cabinet style – clean white to go in the kitchen, 1950’s, metal banding, formica top – to replace a a crappy, laminate wood credenza we found in an abandoned warehouse. Not tryin’ to live that shabby chic life, guys. So it had to go.

Also scored this Herman Miller Eames Aluminum Group Chair from a garage sale in Natomas for $70.00. A little more than I would have liked to spend, but this is a must-have for someone who loves to troll the internet as hard as I do. (Next to it is a less-comfortable black task chair from 16th Street Salvation Army for $3.00.)

Mournday

12 Nov

Together lets mourn the death of the weekend. I’m sorry if that’s macabre, but that’s how it feels in this grey weather lately. Let’s get to it!

A pair of ladder-back chairs for $100. Neato bandito.

9-drawer dresser for $340.00. Oooh.

WHOA WHOA WHOA – this thing has a pop-out foot rest! I’VE NEVER SEEN THAT BEFORE! $180.00 is a great price – located in Folsom.

Kinda pricey but good lookin’ and it’s been posted for awhile so maybe you can ask for a deal! $100 in Cameron Park

I loves me a lucite swag lamp, y’all. $80 in midtown.

$400 expanding dining table in Natomas. Nice finish, y’all!

THESE CHAIRS ARE GREAT! Everyone who sits at this table is comfortable as a KING! No peasants here, ALL CAPTAINS! $225 OBO here in Sacramento!

I hated having a drop leaf table growing up. My knees were always bumping up against it, and I just felt trapped in the table. They do seem like a good option now for a two person household that anticipates guests.

I love that some Danish tables have that tile in the center. The tile is usually a earthy tone, and a very interesting pattern, also doesnt hurt that hot plates can go on top of them with no problems.

Everything is insanely overpriced on Craigslist right now. Sorry, folks. I don’t watch Mad Men, but I’m pretty sure it’s making everything more expensive for us all.

A valet with a dog’s face coming out of it! $20.00 in Citrus Heights.

$2100 Hans Wegner dining table with four chairs. Noice – this is almost a great price to own.

$400.00 big ol’ set in West Sacramento.

Plycraft knock-off browny browner for $400.00 in Lincoln.

$25.00 lil’ lamp in Folsom. Eh, next to a pretty radical clamtastic piece of art, there..

YA LIKE PROJECTS? Well here’s one – $250.00 for this Heywood Wakefield hutch and dining set. $250.00 for the hutch.

$300.00 for the table set with.. only three chairs? Enjoy the hunt and the restore, brah.

Yay, another one of these silly things. This one is $50.00. Watch out for CAPS OVERLOAD.


Paul Evans cubist/brutalist Lane set for $1750.00. This is a pretty sought after set, nice to see all the pieces together. Love the nightstands :D

Ice chippy gray dinette set in Elk Grove for $175.00
