Midcentury Monday #1

I'm really excited to introduce this weekly section for the Velvet Tangerine blog.  Midcentury Modern design is a huge inspiration for me and my ultimate craving in home decor.  I spend a lot of time browsing Craigslist ads, Etsy, Ebay, and the like just to sigh with my "if-only"s and pine away for the furniture in the pictures.

Each week will bring a new post of my midcentury finds, and maybe you'll end up with some cravings of your own!

This week, some Craigslist picks:

First up is this adorable buffet/server.  Imagine how great it would look with a collection of highball glasses, a couple bottles of your finest hooch, and a vintage ice bucket to match.  The seller is asking $220, which isn't too bad if it's in as good a condition as they describe.  Gold-specked formica?  So dreamy!

Next, the credenza-o-my-heart.  Unfortunately I saved this beaut to my hard drive without any details or price information, but I think it speaks for itself, no?

Beautifully detailed hutch.  Asking price $500.

Yes please!  Gotta love Craigslist.

Gorgeous dining set!  This is a Danish inspired Heywood-Wakefield set with a sable finish.  Definitely deserves some new upholstery, but beautiful nonetheless.  Asking $1195.

Finishing up this week's Midcentury Monday is this fantastically shaped "womb" chair.  This puppy definitely needs to be reupholstered.  So many possibilities!  Not quite a steal, however, at $725.

Do you have a collection of drool-worthy midcenutry furniture images?  I'd love to see what designs strike your fancy in the comments!
